Trinity Christian College celebrated its 50th birthday with 1,400 guests at a dinner at Navy Pier in Chicago. Homecoming events on the Palos Heights, Ill., campus and a community worship service rounded out the celebration.
Rev. Arthur De Kruyter, one of the college’s founding members, shared some of his recollections of the school’s beginning.
De Kruyter’s stories reminded current president Steven Timmermans that in God it is possible to do what many say is impossible. “The weekend gave us opportunity to thank and praise God for making the impossible possible at Trinity these past 50 years,” Timmermans said.
