My Fellow Brothers and Sisters,
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and blessings to you all.
I am writing this letter to you with a grateful heart and to express the future vision of Trinity Bible Institute. What started 15 years ago with five people in a discipleship class is now literally reaching the world with the Gospel. ONLY GOD can make that possible.
Currently, TBI is at 400 students and growing rapidly. This presents us with an incredible opportunity and at the same time a tremendous challenge. Facilitating and managing the growing number of students while keeping it affordable and cost effective is one of our greatest challenges. Our TBI staff is absolutely the best, but nevertheless they are overwhelmed much of the time. We desperately need a minimum of one full-time employee. Everyone who works for TBI is a volunteer, including myself; to say it is a great joy is an understatement. The fruit of our labor remains in you. Many of you were saved and/or prepared for the journey you are on now at TBI. We are humbled to have been a part of your life. There is no price on a soul, a life, or a family that has been furthered by the Gospel.
We are inviting you to be a part of heavens reward. TBI is looking for people who will share the Vision of the Gospel with us in monthly financial support. TBI has become a Global Evangelistic Missionary. It’s hard to believe we are not only impacting our community and nation, but now the world. No gift is too small or large. Everything you give will be applied directly to TBI expenses for the Reaching, Teaching, and Keeping the Gospel of Christ.
With rising costs forcing tuition rates for many schools to increase, we are trying to offset these costs so that anyone who wants to learn can be a part of this Incredible Journey. To give you an example as to what you are investing in, I recently taught a first-year class of 100 student in which the Holy Spirit took over and eight souls were gloriously saved! People were still gathered praying for God to move even after class was over…and He did! Another student gave her life to Christ the next day. Thank you, Jesus! These students will now be led step by step thru the Word of God to learn and grow in His grace. The students are on fire, and you know what? So am I!
God said in his word, Jeremiah 33:3 – “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”
Truly God is doing great things at TBI. We are so grateful for your time and investments in this life changing place. Thank you for your prayerful consideration to help build the Kingdom of God by partnering with us, One Soul at a Time!
We love you dearly,
Dr Ricky D Cope
Dean of Trinity Bible Institute
