Thank you for considering Trinity Bible College and Graduate School for your graduate education. Our M.A. and Ph.D. programs are challenging and rewarding as they prepare you to confront the changes that are taking place in our culture as well as address these changes as leaders in your community.

As Assistant Dean, I am here to assist you through the registration and orientation process as well as help you succeed as a lifelong learner in our program. My own M.A. and Ph.D. work was done in large part at a distance so I can empathize with the needs and challenges that you will face.

I look forward to working with you and helping you to achieve the academic goals you will encounter here at Trinity Bible College and Graduate School.

Missionary Audit Program

Trinity Bible College and Graduate School is proud to offer one free graduate class to missionaries. This class is taken as an audit course which can be later converted to graduate credit for no charge, if the student matriculates into graduate school at Trinity and completes a reflective assignment or other assessment as determined by the graduate school faculty.

Course List
One course can be taken free of charge from the following list:

  • PT610 Ethical Foundations for Christian Leadership
  • LD510 Contextualizing Leadership
  • CS510 An Introduction to Mission and Culture
  • CS520 Missionary Movements in Review: Lessons for Contemporary Mission
  • CS620 The Biblical Theology of Justice

These courses can either be taken online or on-campus. Students are not responsible to complete assignments or reading but would benefit from either of these if they choose to engage as a typical student would.

Application Process
Potential Missionary Audit participants must fully apply to graduate school at TBCGS and be accepted, per standard processes. The student does not have to pay an application or registration fee.

Audit/Credit Conversion
Students who decide to matriculate into graduate school must request in writing (via letter, email, or some other standard form of written communication) that their audit course be converted into credit.

Students must have completed the reflective assessment as assigned by the graduate school faculty before the course can be accepted for credit. The graduate school reserves the right to alter the nature of the assessment at any time but will only do so after having given notice to prospective and current participants.
