In Their Own Words…

“The ability to offer accredited college Bible training in the context of our local church will benefit both the students and our ministries. Within a local Pentecostal environment, the fire of learning will burn brightly.”
George W. Raduano, Lead Pastor

Trinity Assembly of God, Lutherville MD
