Former Trinity Christian School student Todd Mackey is shaking things up and bringing the love of Christ to a world less reached but is only an arms length (or a mosh pit) away. In 1999, Todd along with a few friends decided to start a hardcore Christian rock band named “Life in Your Way” that embraced one common message in its lyrics and its mission, “The world needs God and God is eager to meet us where we are.” The band has produced 4 full length records, most recently teaming up with Come & Live for the release of "Kingdoms." LIYW has performed throughout the US, Canada, and Europe, bringing the message of salvation and Christ’s love to its listeners. In February 2013, the band performed along with other local rock bands at the Sandy Hook Benefit Show in New London, CT where proceeds were donated to those affected by the tragedy. We here at TCS are so proud of Todd for his dedication and commitment to shining the light of Christ into the world in this creative way.
Alexander graduated from Trinity Christian School in 2008. What would have been her first year as a college freshman, Mikayla chose to take that year and dedicate it to serving others as a missionary in Macon, Georgia through Missio Dei. She has chosen to bless others first and embrace a solid foundation in service and love that will help her to grow more all while bringing the love of Christ to those who had not experienced that love before. Mikayla blessed TCS by visiting our students and sharing with them stories about her experience as a missionary and her joy that she finds in bringing people to the Lord. We are so proud of Mikayla for letting the light of Christ shine brightly through her life of service and love towards others.

Additionally, Charisse was one of only four students selected to participate in the semester long leadership program called Common Ground sponsored by Leadership Greater Hartford. She worked alongside other high school students from a variety of backgrounds learning how to be a great leader within the community while embracing each others differences. Some clubs that Charisse enjoys at Bloomfield High include the Writer’s Club, Photography Club, and Young Women’s Leadership. She is an active volunteer and has volunteered her time and assistance at the 2013 CT Race in the Park to support breast cancer research.

God bless you Charisse as you grow in your talents and use them for the glory of God.
Trinity Christian School alumna Zenobia Jones re-defines battle and how to overcome some of life's toughest struggles. Now a High School student, she went through some of her toughest struggles while she was a student here at TCS. Through her battle she learned what love and support and forgiveness was all about and credits her strong character to her experience here at TCS where she learned what God teaches about resolution and love. She never let her battle stop her and now shares her story with others to provide hope and encouragement. Zenobia is now running and winning medals on the Varsity track team, she is a Varsity cheerleader, is a high achieving honor roll student at her school and is very active in her church, school and community. Zenobia spoke at our "Light Up the Night" Education Gala in 2013 and shared with us her wonderful gift of voice as she sang the late Whitney Houston's "I Look To You". We are so proud of Zenobia and all she has accomplished. She uses her past struggle to fuel her fire and shine brighter than ever for Jesus Christ!
