Trinity Baptist College
HISTORY OF TRINITY BAPTIST COLLEGE
Trinity Baptist College was founded in 1974 by Trinity Baptist Church. In 1992, the church voted to call Tom Messer as pastor. Subsequently, in 1995 Pastor Messer brought Dr. Charles Shoemaker on staff to become the Executive Vice-President of the college. Under the leadership of Dr. Shoemaker, the college became accredited and the campus was also relocated from McDuff Avenue to its current location. This move occurred in the fall of 1998. Dr. Shoemaker continued to serve until his resignation in May of 2010.
We are very excited about the future of Trinity Baptist College and believe that God has brought some very gifted and spiritual leaders alongside our college Chancellor, Pastor Tom Messer. These men include Mr. Mac Heavener who currently serves as the President of our college and also Dr. Matthew Beemer who serves as Senior Vice President.
Mr. Heavener brings to Trinity vast leadership and operational experience. He has over 40 years of experience in real estate, including 20 years he served as the President and Co-CEO of the international real estate company, ERA. His contributions at ERA helped the company grow to over 3,000 offices, operating in 23 countries. Mac's leadership capabilities serves both our students and faculty well.
Dr. Beemer comes to Trinity with over 25 years of collegiate educational experience in the classroom and also administrative roles. He brings a wealth of experience and commitment to our school and the results of his godly leadership and influence are clearly seen.
