THE TROPHIMUS CENTER

THE TROPHIMUS CENTER

A Facility for Seminary, Community, Provincial and Global Mission

Trinity Anglican Seminary is an evangelical seminary in the Anglican tradition seeking to train effective leaders for domestic and global ministry and mission.  Its graduates serve as bishops, clergy and lay leaders on six continents.  Lutherans (North American Lutheran Church) and Presbyterians (Evangelical Presbyterian Church Synod of the Alleghenies) also train lay and ordained leaders at Trinity.

Reclaiming an architectural gem in a rust-belt river valley, the Trophimus Center (named for a young protégé of the Apostle Paul) will function as a conference and events facility, global and community meeting place, worship and teaching venue, and student and family life building. The Seminary and the Trophimus Center are located only a short distance from Pittsburgh International Airport.

An extraordinary gift of seven million dollars from a visionary donor made possible the purchase and extensive renovation of the structure.  Several other major gifts have made possible the complete restoration of the building’s fifty-seven stained glass windows and its Opus 1922 Schantz Pipe Organ.

The vision for the Trophimus Center imagines principal uses as one-third Seminary, one-third Global Church, and one-third local and regional community.  Among the uses for which flexible and state-of-the-art capabilities have been incorporated are worship services, convocations, synods, conferences (regional, provincial and global), appropriate concerts and theatre, as well as student and family ministry.

One additional major gift is sought to underwrite unfunded elements of the audio-visual-lighting-acoustic system optimally designed for the facility.  Many Thanksgiving and Memorial opportunities are also being offered for various furnishings, areas, and rooms within the building.  Lists of these opportunities are available from the Development Office, Trinity Anglican Seminary, 311 11th Street, Ambridge, PA 15003.  The Center is scheduled to open in May of 2024.
