Great Look at the People and Programs at Trinity
This is a really cool format for learning more about the people and programs at Trinity. The conversational style makes it perfect for hearing members’ stories and seeing a behind-the-scenes views of the opportunities for equipping at Trinity, a feat which is hard to accomplish on Sunday mornings.
