Welcoming Words from President Yoon Hee Kim

I thank the Lord for providing a firm foundation for Torch Trinity Graduate University and for guiding the institution in raising brilliant men and women in the midst of the 21st century’s waves of change. I would also like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for everyone who has prayed, supported, encouraged, and served the school both directly and indirectly. 


Having just celebrated its 20th anniversary, mature and yet still young, the school has much room for growth. It is my hope that Torch Trinity Graduate University can make leaps and bounds as it faces new challenges. As a term that has been trending lately, convergence is a notion that will continue to be necessary in the future. There must be a convergence and integration beyond a division of academic disciplines. The gospel, the Bible, theology, ministry, mission work, and life must all be converged and integrated with faith.  


Based on the mission and vision by which this school was founded and based on the changes brought about by the 21st century, Torch Trinity Graduate University will take steps to become more globalized, mission-oriented, gospel-centered, and to provide an education which integrates faith, life, the Bible, and spirituality. Here at Torch Trinity Graduate University, it is our mission to raise disciples and leaders whose faith and life are one and the same and who bring joy to the Lord. 


May the Lord bless you greatly in your family, your workplace, your church, your ministry, and your mission field. 


Dr. Yoon Hee Kim
