Our Mission

The Trinity Institute seeks to disciple, mentor and encourage a community of creative individuals, seekers and those asking the big questions of life. We do this by opening our doors to those seeking individual study and personal retreats while also providing programs for larger groups in the arts, philosophy and the Christian faith.


Study and Hospitality

"That house was a perfect house, whether you like food or sleep, or storytelling or singing, or just sitting and thinking, or a pleasant mixture of them all. Merely to be there was a cure for weariness, fear and sadness."

-JRR Tolkien

Louisiana Hall, originally built as a  girl's dorm in 1904, still provides housing for groups, such as family reunions, university student groups, etc. It will sleep 74 guests on two floors in bunk beds. There are  common bathrooms/toilets/sinks/showers on the second and third floors. On the first floor is a user friendly commercial kitchen with an adjoining dining room that will seat around 80. French doors open to a deck behind the building that will seat another 80 people.  There are also three bathrooms on the first floor and a "dorm mother's private bedroom with bath" as well as an old fashioned parlor.  Costs are $15 per person per night (6 years and up) and a $125 one time kitchen fee. Contact us if you only want to rent it for basically day use.  Most groups do their own cooking; we do not provide that service, but can provide you with names of local caterers if you need that. Prices are subject to change so confirm the prices when you contact us to make reservations (a deposit is required to make a reservation).


The Barracks has a wide range of accommodations:

-Off of a sitting/TV room are rooms with 2 bunk beds and another room with a double bed and 2 bunk beds.

What People Say

Trinity Institute provides a refuge for up & coming and/or already made artists from the speed the city by offering counsel, wisdom, and direction, bringing together lectures, spokesmen, other painter/poet/musicians/creative types across the disciplines to unite them in gatherings of conference and song.

Under the guidance & tutelage of Dr James Parker III, Esquire, who has faithfully served on staff at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary for over 18 plus years, the anachronistic anomaly deep in the heart lovingly referred to as simply, Trinity, brings world views into peaceful shape for youth in need of help in preparation for the all too busy post-modern hectic world by acting as guard rail and hedge of protection pouring a good intellectual foundation stone for everything from music to law providing bold vision & a fearless approach to truth for these young & future statesmen desperately in need of shrinking their worlds into more manageable working parts, to be fully engaged with culture, and to meet them on their playing field so they then can meet others.

Plus, they have goats.
