Strom Chosen as New President of Trinity Bible College

On February 29, 2008, the Trinity Bible College Board of Regents took action to form an Executive Team for the college by selecting G.L. (Jack) Strom, Samuel H. Johnson and Samuel Farina, to assume executive leadership of the college.



Strom was selected to be the president of the college. Strom, along with his wife Barb, will be relocating from Florida to Ellendale, North Dakota, to fill the President's office immediately.



"As the president of Trinity Bible College, along with the newly elected Executive Team members, Rev. Sam Johnson and Rev. Sam Farina," Strom says, "I plan to capitalize on the strengths of TBC and focus on communicating a progressive but relevant vision for the future."




Ministry is an inseparable part of Strom's life, whether as the son of a minister, a Bible college student, pastor, church college administrator, missionary evangelist or strategic initiative planner. After serving as a pastor, in 1972, Strom joined the administrative team of North Central Bible College (now North Central University) in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he served as vice president of Development. In 1982, he left the college to start his own strategic planning service, Strom Ministry Concepts.



Strom has led churches and para-church organizations to dramatic growth in giving, both as a pastor and as a capital fund initiative planner. Under his consulting leadership, churches, colleges and other church related ministries have experienced increases in giving, totaling millions of dollars.



Strom is also a proven problem solver. He is committed to encouraging and helping those he serves to rise above obstacles and to realize new victories and opportunities, which include the excitement and challenges that come with the adventure of walking out God-given vision.



"There is a dedicated faculty in place, an excellent campus and facilities, a 60-year testimony of God-honoring results and a student body recruited by the Holy Spirit to be prepared and moved to greater vision of what can be as they are commissioned unto ministry," Strom says. "It is faith (Hebrews 11:1) that is our future. I also know that faith without works is dead (James 2:20). This Executive Team plans to put our faith to work!"



As an actively sought after speaker, Strom is called upon to speak at missions conventions, leadership retreats, and to be the pulpit guest at churches across the nation.



To serve with President Strom, Farina and Johnson were appointed to serve as executive vice presidents. While they will not be resident on the Trinity Bible College campus, they will form a strategic planning team for the college with Strom. Along with the continuation of their already established field ministry, they will also represent Trinity Bible College wherever they go.
