Family and Friends of Trinity Christian Academy
We hope this finds you well and blessed by our gracious God. It brings us great joy to officially announce what has long been anticipated: the beginning of our campaign to construct our future school. In 2014, Trinity was graciously gifted forty acres on Brannon Rd., the perfect location for our future school campus. Since then, five additional acres have also been donated. For five years, we have patiently waited for the right time to move forward with fundraising and construction, and we believe that time is now.
The theme of our campaign is Imagine the Impact.
This was the dream in 1988, when a few families stepped out in faith and founded Trinity Christian Academy. They imagined the impact of a premier Christian academic institution in the Bluegrass and believed that dream was worth their sacrificial generosity. Now 31 years later, we are beneficiaries of that dream and their sacrifice. With 65 staff members, record enrollment, leading academics, and a robust Christian worldview, Trinity is indeed flourishing.
And now it is time to take the next crucial step forward in that original dream. There remains only one glaring deficiency to Trinity, and it is our facilities. Not only is our Upper School not properly configured for education, it simply is not enough space. We rejoice in the growth of Trinity, but at the same time, it has created an unsustainable situation. What is now a major obstacle will soon become a complete impossibility, as our larger Lower School classes transition to Upper School. Make no mistake, we are building this school, not out of want but out of need.
But the need is not simply a new beautiful school that we can all be proud of; the need is a facility to facilitate our vision. Trinity has always been a school that is unapologetically vision driven. We are not motivated by nice facilities as much as the education and discipleship of our children. But we have reached the point where our facilities are standing in the way of this foundational commitment. Therefore, in building our new school, the vision remains the same. We build for the much greater purpose of the glory of God and the good of the next generation. Simply put, as we move forward into this next chapter of our history, we do not move forward imagining great facilities; we move forward imagining the impact these great facilities will enable.
In the coming weeks you will continue to receive regular updates and information from our team, but for now, we want to invite everyone to a town hall meeting at Tates Creek Presbyterian on Tuesday, Nov. 5, at 7:00 p.m. There you will receive a full update on the campaign and construction, as well as answers to any questions you may have. For now, if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Sarah Taylor, our Director of Development, at email@example.com.
Moving forward, our challenge will be very simple: We humbly invite everyone to prayerfully consider how you can sacrificially give toward this vision. We understand that some have the capacity to give more than others, but the ask is not equal gifts, but equal sacrifice. Make no mistake, this dream is big, but our God is bigger. If we all come together in the spirit of sacrificial generosity, then we will see the dream become a reality.
Friends, imagine the impact. But as we imagine, let us also remember that God is able to do far more than we could ever ask or imagine.
Imagining with you,
The Campaign Leadership Team
