Trinity School of Ministry

Supporting Our Mission

For over 40 years, Trinity School for Ministry has prepared more than 1,000 men and women for Christian mission and ministry.  God is using them mightily to evangelize and disciple millions of men and women around the globe through preaching, teaching, youth work, and other ministries. And God continues to draw growing numbers of students to Trinity, even in these turbulent times in the church.

But this ministry would not be possible without your support. As a non-profit, donation-based ministry, Trinity School for Ministry is dependent upon the financial help of people like you to keep our programs going strong. Please prayerfully consider becoming a member of our donor family to fulfill our mission.

Support Trinity Today

Friends and supporters of the school may choose to give a one-time gift, join our Lamplighters with monthly giving, and/or establish planned gifts through the Thomas Cranmer Society.  Please use the form below to make your donation or call our Development Office for non-online and planned giving options.

Food, Fellowship, & Faith

Trinity School for Ministry’s campus meals are prepared daily by Chef Karen and her crew, with love and care. Each meal shared is a special time of good food, rich conversation, and warm Christian fellowship.

This Christmas, we ask you to help our students by supporting the Community Meal Program.

Trinity will spend $106,000 this year to provide meals for our students and community. Students are not billed for meals — this program is paid directly from our operating budget, keeping tuition and fees as low as possible.

A gift of just $30 will provide three meals for a thankful student. Please help us reach our goal by supporting our Community Meal Program.

Blessings for a joyous Christmas season!

Become a Lamplighter!

“Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:15-16 ESV).

Trinity School for Ministry’s Lamplighters are a growing group of regular monthly donors. Our Lamplighters make a significant difference in the lives of our seminarians by providing valuable support throughout the year with recurring monthly gifts, creating a strong foundation for the school.  This loyal giving provides our seminarians a world-class education for ministry that is anchored in the Bible and expressed through the Anglican tradition. Partners like you enable us to continue forming leaders to go into the world and make disciples of Jesus.

Each month as a Lamplighter, a consistent gift amount of your choosing is transferred any way you’d like—either by credit card or bank account—to Trinity School for Ministry.

As a Lamplighter, you will receive a tax deduction receipt at the beginning of each new calendar year. You will also receive, among other exclusive opportunities: early access to new podcasts; exclusive access to material from Trinity School for Ministry legends such as Alf Stanway; a special, members only thank you from our Dean and President, and more.

Thank you for partnering with Trinity School for Ministry. We’d love to call you our newest Lamplighter!

The Thomas Cranmer Society

The Thomas Cranmer Society recognizes and welcomes people who have made estate plan inclusions or qualifying deferred gifts at Trinity School for Ministry. Through prayers and financial support, Cranmer Society members help provide a solid financial base for the seminary for years to come.

Giving of our assets is a way that we can say thank you to God for God’s blessings in our lives. We do that continually throughout offerings and outright gifts, but for many of us, the most significant gift we can make is through our estate plans.

You qualify for membership in the Society if you have included Trinity in your estate plans through any of these qualifying gift options:

  • Will
  • Charitable Gift Annuity
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Remainder Interest in a Personal Residence or Farm
  • Charitable Lead Trust
  • Qualified Retirement Plan Benefits
  • Individual Retirement Accounts
  • Life Insurance


Trinity invites you to include a charitable gift for the seminary in your estate plan. By doing so, you ensure Trinity’s ability to form outstanding leaders for Christian mission and ministry for many years to come. You may choose to designate your gift for one of the seminary’s permanent scholarship endowment funds which will benefit future generations of students preparing to answer God’s call.
