When i first saw their website and all of the courses they had to offer, i was impressed.


When i saw their courses towards associates, bachelor, master, and doctoral degrees required textbook radings and writings, i was impressed.

Before making the committment to pay the tuition and begin the studies towards their Associate in Christian Counseling, a friend of mine told me to research the name and address of "the accrediting agency."

Their accrediting agency is TEAS, it has a website of their own, but TEAS is an affiliate of the very Church the School is affiliated.  To my surprise and dissapointment it is very common for diploma-mills to create their own accrediting agency and to "accredit themselves."

Apparently this is the case between Trinity Institute and their so-called accrediting agency. I went as far as to visit the website for the state of alabama and found out there are no churches or schools incorporated in
The State of Alabama by name of :

United New Testament Church International
Trinity Institute of Christian Counseling
Trinity Evangel Christian University

The so-called Church "UNTCI" is an affiliate of another Church, and the same is true with their school whatever the name is. This is nothing but an umbrella operation !

After learning all of this i decided NOT to invest over $200.00 in a Master of Christian Counseling degree from them ! Since then i have enrolled into a far better christian correspondence school, which is accreditted, is incor-
porated and does have a physical presence (address) :


I am busy with a full-time factory job and do not have time to attend bible college at the same time, and i took time to carefully scrutinize both schools before making the final determination to commit my time and money to a
reputable bible school !

Although churches and religious schools are not required to incorporate, it is very easy for the pastor or president or chairman of an unincorporated church or school "to take your money and run" without a paper trail to lead
you to their mobile home where you can serve lawsuit papers at to get a refund in case of a rip off.

I have telephoned them many time to ask questions and all i ever got was an answering machine and none of my telephone calls were returned.

I agree.  Stay FAR away from places such as this.  Having a "degree" from this "school" will only get you laughter, not respect.
