Tiger Talk reflects the work of our faculty, staff, alumni, and students. Trinity is very proud of the rich heritage that God has given to us through those He has used in so many ways to advance the gospel and his kingdom. Trinity has graduates serving all over the world in countless ministries, from pastors and missionaries to teachers and musicians. God is using Trinity College to further His fame and glory. We hope that God uses this blog to make His name great as He continues to use Trinity College of Florida.


Why Christian Education?

Why Christian Education?

BY JONATHAN REYES: Why Christian Education?  That is a good question, and if I can admit, I will be biased because I am a product of Christian Education.  I must admit that on the surface Christian Education sounds like Bible study, but I can attest that Christian education is simply education that stems from a Christian worldview.  Before I discuss my reasoning on why Christian Education is important,…

3 Ways to Pray for Your Pastor

3 Ways to Pray for Your Pastor

BY MATT NOBLE: In Hebrews 13 we are told that pastors must give an account for those they watch over (Hebrew 13:7). We see this again in the epistle of James where we are told that pastors will be judged with greater strictness (James 3:1) as they have tremendous influence over the church. Pastors have been given a very weighty task – to shepherd God’s people (Acts 20:28). This is an enormous responsibility…

Psalm 23

Psalm 23

BY PARKER PERRELLA: If you are like me- human- then you have a tendency to be fearful. You fear unwanted outcomes. You fear loss. You fear vulnerability. You fear not being in control. Fill in the blank… We have a tendency to doubt that the Sovereign, Almighty God of the universe has a plan that is ultimately for our good and His greater glory. Psalm 23 brings me comfort, as it should to you, knowing…

Why Pastors Should Never Touch Church Money

Why Pastors Should Never Touch Church Money

BY DR. JOE ALLOTTA: There’s only 2 ways for a Pastor to get on the evening news – a sex scandal or a money scandal. (If you feed a 100,000 homeless people or cure cancer you might make the religious section of your towns second biggest newspaper.) I’ll deal with avoiding sex scandals some other time. Oh wait, I can do it in one sentence. Just sleep with your wife. Hmm, that was easy. (Well, I’ll still…

The Church’s Theology Misconception

The Church’s Theology Misconception

BY VICTOR GANCEDO: What is the Problem? The problem in the most basic form is that people in the church have taken the word Theology out of context, (The Church seems to be good at that recently) and it has created a misconception within the Christian culture especially within contemporary communities. This misconception, in short, is the idea that theology is something only pastors study, it is…

Who is St. Valentine?!?

Who is St. Valentine?!?

BY DR. JOE ALLOTTA: That’s the most interesting thing about Valentines Day to me. We have no idea who St. Valentine is.  We know St. Nicholas gave presents to kids. We know St. Patrick was into all things Irish (although his official saint color was blue.) So why is St. Valentine associated with love, hearts, and overpriced greeting cards? Let me share some history and then some commentary: History Valentinus…

3 Ways Biblical Theology is Practical

3 Ways Biblical Theology is Practical

BY ADAM POWERS: Everyone is a theologian. Some of you may think that statement makes as much sense as the above picture of someone swimming on a road. If that’s you, you’ll want to keep reading. You ever thought of this? Everyone you’ve ever met in your life and you yourself, are a theologian. Let me explain. If you’ve ever had a thought about God: who God is, what God is like, what God demands of…

Introducing Jesus: Where Do You Start?

Introducing Jesus: Where Do You Start?

BY DR. JOE ALLOTTA: The life of Jesus is recorded in 4 Gospels, and they each reminisce about Him in a slightly different light. The first time Jesus is introduced actually illuminates quite a bit about how he will be presented. Let’s get started: Mateo 1:1 The record of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham. So Matt wastes no time to introduce Jesus. Verse 1,…

The Heaven's Declare

The Heaven's Declare

BY MATT NOBLE: The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. – Psalm 19:1 Sometime ago I heard a pastor speaking about the size of our galaxy. It is incredible. We know that the speed of light is 186,000 miles per second. Not per hour, but per second. That is fast! To travel from one side of our galaxy to the other side of our galaxy would take 100,000 years traveling…
