Alumni

When classes commenced at TTC in 1948, its students were mostly from Singapore and Malaysia. As its reputation grew, more students came from South East Asia, North Asia and far beyond the region. Today, our alumni is an international community representing nearly fifty countries around the globe, all serving the Lord in their respective nations.

We continue to keep our alumni updated on college events though letters, email correspondences and social media (connect with Trinity Theological College on Facebook and Instagram!)

Alumni also keep in touch with their alma mater with news of their ministry and their families. New items are reported in the Trumpet while more general news are posted under Alumni Updates (Monthly).
