Invitation to a Renovation
Trinity Bible College and Graduate School has received a pledge of funds to complete a major renovation of Liechty Hall (girls dormitory). The project will include the replacement of showers, commode, vanity, flooring, plumbing, painting, and windows. The project will begin with interior demolition in early May 2021 and is anticipated to continue all summer with a target completion date of August 1, 2021. Most of the renovation is planned to be completed by volunteers.

- RV Hookups (50 A / water / sewer). Capacity exists for additional full hook-up sites.
- Trinity Apartments: beds, kitchen, AC, refrigerator, stove, oven. Minimal furnishings—we suggest bringing lawn chairs, cookware, etc.
- Riffe Hall
- Daniel Schneck Kesler Hall: male groups only. Bedding and linens not provided.
Hospitality / Meals
Groups will need to come prepared to provide for their own meals. The Trinity campus is not in a position this summer to provide for meals as the cafeteria and 701 Cafe will also be in renovation at this time. However, the following kitchen/food preparation areas will be available to your group:
- Davidson Hall Kitchen / Commons: refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave, dishwasher, dishes, flatware, and seating.
- Prayer Center Atrium Servery: refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, dishes, flatware, and seating. There is no stove/oven. However, we are looking for a countertop range.
- Propane grill in the inner courtyard.
Please direct initial inquiries to Bryan Jacobson.
