About

Our vision is to facilitate critical dialogue about faith at the university and in the church.

Trinity Fellowship is a cross-ministry resource for the IU community bridging multiple Christian traditions.

We invite the IU community to:

  • Bring together faith and learning.
  • Discover the intellectual resources of the Christian faith and equip students for contemporary life.

We desire to:

  • Engage in honest inquiry with academic integrity and discuss difficult questions while remaining humble in our conclusions.
  • Promote theological curiosity and contribute to the common good.
  • Avoid activities that divide us from the very campus culture we seek to serve.
  • Create an environment that affirms Christian truth claims and is generous to those who differ from us.
