About Us


The Trinity Arts Foundation, in partnership with the Trinity Arts Center, is dedicated to a three-fold mission: developing high quality arts education programs that are consistent with Christian principles; supporting the personal, professional, and spiritual growth of Christian artists in the region; and creating opportunities for our students, instructors, and partners to serve, love, and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with those in the Johnson City and Tri-Cities communities.

 

Since 2006, the Trinity Arts Foundation, a non-profit 501c(3) organization, and the Trinity Arts Center, a multi-disciplinary arts school, have connected with students, parents, artists, teachers, and patrons to provide God-honoring arts education and performance opportunities in the Tri-Cities area. Through hundreds of educational workshops, classes, and live performances; and more than $500,000 in performance grants and educational scholarships, the Arts Foundation continues to press into its mission to support Christian musicians, dancers, actors, teachers, artists, writers, and directors who aspire to create educational programs and performance opportunities that balance excellence with accessibility, passion with purity, and truth with love. We believe that art is meaningful, that stories are inspirational, that music is universal, that dance is beautiful, that creativity is valuable, and that God is good. The arts can be used in a creative and powerful way, for His glory.

 

  1. The Trinity Arts Foundation operates with zero administrative costs, meaning that 100% of donations go toward programs, grants, and scholarships.
  2. Since 2006, we’ve awarded more than $500,000 in educational scholarships to low income students, and performance grants to local schools, theaters, and arts organizations.
  3. In the past two years, our Arts Give Back projects have awarded $10,000 to St. Jude Children’s hospital, $7,000 to local arts organizations, $10,000 to local elementary schools to supplement arts programming, and hosted six weeks of Move It Your Way dance workshops for special needs and wheelchair confined students.
  4. In December of 2016, we launched a building campaign for a fully modern, twelve-hundred seat, community performing arts center which, when completed, will offer a unique turn-key solution to local schools, churches, arts organizations, and individuals to bring a greater number of high-quality dance, theatre, and music performances to our community.
  5. On a weekly basis, the Trinity Arts Center serves about 10% of the families in Johnson City with school-age children.
