Headmaster & School Board
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.
