Missions at Trinity Presbyterian Church of McKinney Texas seek to reflect the heart of our compassionate God, who wants every person to experience His love and to live free of want, fear, and injustice.
We seek to educate, inspire, and facilitate involvement of our members in a variety of local and global ministries. Everyone who calls Trinity their spiritual home is encouraged to live a 5G life. Thus, we encourage all to have some kind of hands-on involvement, which we call Risk-taking Mission and Service, or GO-ing. For more information visit the What We Believe web page.
