School Leadership

Welcome from the Headmaster, Mr. David Lattner

I want to welcome you to the website of Trinity Christian School. As you explore this site, I pray that you will see that TCS is a truly unique school in Statesboro and Bulloch County. We are a school that is dedicated to providing an excellent education from a truly Christian perspective. As our mission statement says,

“Trinity Christian School, a ministry of Trinity Presbyterian Church, seeks to honor Jesus Christ by preparing students academically, equipping students to view the world and its culture from a Christian perspective, and developing in students’ hearts a desire to serve God and others.”

I believe this mission statement sums up what TCS is all about. It speaks to our mission in three categories – the head, the heart, and the hands.

Head – preparing students academically. At Trinity Christian School we are committed to providing an outstanding academic education to our students. God has called us to love Him with all our minds, so we want our students to leave here with a broad and deep knowledge of the world God has made.

Heart – equipping students to view the world and its culture from a biblical perspective. I often ask students at the beginning of the year which is better, to be smart or to be wise? I think the Bible is clear that to be wise, which means being able to discern right from wrong, truth from error, and to understand how the facts that we have accumulated fit together, is better. Proverbs says “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” No matter how smart a person is, if they do not recognize that all truth comes from God alone, then they will never truly be wise.

Hands – developing in students’ hearts a desire to serve God and others. As Christians we are called to follow Christ’s example of service (Philippians 2). God has served us by giving us his Son, and we are to serve him and serve one another out of gratitude for what he has done for us.

As you go through our website, I trust that you will get a glimpse of the uniqueness of the mission and ministry of Trinity Christian School.

In Him,
David Lattner

Jennifer Sherrodupper school principal

Mrs. Sherrod is a Bulloch County native. She was born in Statesboro and graduated from Southeast Bulloch High School. Inspired by her school teachers and confirmed through her opportunities to serve her church, Mrs. Sherrod knew from an early age that the Lord had called her to be an educator. She went on to become a “double Eagle” by graduating from Georgia Southern University with a B.S. Ed. in Interrelated Special Education in 2002 and an M.Ed. in Educational Leadership in 2014. In addition, Mrs. Sherrod earned an Ed.S. degree in Educational Leadership from Valdosta State University in 2017.

Mrs. Sherrod began her teaching career in the Bulloch County public school system, and she has extensive teaching experience at the middle and high school levels. During her time in education, Mrs. Sherrod has worked in regular education, special education, and gifted education classrooms teaching a variety of subjects. She was recognized as the SEBMS Teacher of the Year in 2014. In addition, Mrs. Sherrod served in a variety of leadership positions, including 504 coordinator, RTI coordinator, and assistant principal before beginning employment at Trinity Christian School.

Mrs. Sherrod currently serves as the upper school principal at Trinity Christian School. Although she had been a TCS parent for several years, she began employment at TCS during the 2018-2019 school year. One of her strengths is teacher mentoring, and she has a heart for seeing all students be successful. She also enjoys investing in our students in grades 6-12. The thing she appreciates most about working at TCS is the opportunity to blend her faith and professional skills to ultimately bring glory to God.
