“This project we are proposing is focused on our future, but has it’s roots in our past. A generation ago, God gave our church a vision and a task to accomplish. Through prayer, faith, and financial sacrifice, almost 20 years ago, we relocated our church campus to this corner in South Lake Charles. Now it’s time for another step of faith, as we seek to continue ministry to the generations to come.”

The Sustaining the Future Team is making a recommendation to Trinity Baptist Church that we proceed with the renovation and updating of phase one (Central Venue, Foyer, East, and West end educational space, and Administrative office space) as outlined in the plans and scope submitted. The total project is currently estimated at $5.5 million.
