Who We Are

     Trinity Life Ministry is a Christ-centered, biblically-based, nonprofit organization providing a 12-month residential life transforming service to men eighteen years of age and older. Based in Lafayette, IN, our residential facility is forty-five minutes west of Indianapolis in Crawfordsville, Indiana.

     Founded in 1985 as “Trinity House,” we operated as a homeless facility for those who wished to live in a semi-structured environment to help establish order and provide a stepping stone. Alcohol and drug addiction were prevalent and, in most cases, were the primary element in homelessness. In response, a Christ-centered addiction curriculum was developed and implemented.

     Trinity continues to employ a Biblical approach to life's problems and struggles through life transformation. Those accepted into the men’s ministry are provided with housing, life transformation education, life skills and job training, counseling, mentoring, and life transformation assistance while being paired into local churches for sustaining support during and after completion. Services are provided based on availability and without regard to financial status, insurance, creed, national origin, race, or religion.

     In addition to the men’s residential program, we offer a weekly family ministry where we work with children, wives, parents, and other family members of those in our care. We believe there are hope and healing available for the entire family.

     Trinity has experienced tremendous growth and changes over the last few years.  We now serve up to sixty men a year in our residential program and over one hundred family members annually, including fifty to sixty children.

     In support of the donor/community supported life transformation programming, Trinity operates two “Lost, then Found” thrift stores located in Lafayette and Crawfordsville.

     We are dedicated to Christian development, discipleship, and fellowship. We exist to serve men struggling with life and life dominating sins and to partner with the Holy Spirit in the reconciliation of souls, families, and relationship with God.

     Our heart's desire is to help more men overcome their life challenges and struggles through the power of Christ.
