Biography

Dr. Paul Alexander has served as the President of Trinity Bible College & Graduate School since 2012.

Under his leadership, the College has seen tremendous growth. Trinity opened the Graduate School with two Master of Arts programs, launched Pack Your Bags, a pre-college mission experience, and has seen the addition of undergraduate programs. Most significantly, Trinity’s national accreditation with the Association of Biblical Higher Education was restored to good standing.

On Trinity’s campus, renovation has begun on the 100-year-old Davidson Hall, and in 2016, the Prayer & Teaching Center opened which dramatically improved the campus’s functionality and appearance. Under Dr. Paul’s leadership, Trinity has found financial stability, implemented a shared governance model of leadership, and has seen renewed health across all areas of the College.

Dr. Paul and his wife, Dr. Carol, are passionate about training servant leaders with a commitment to church planting, mission, and care for the poor and disenfranchised. This commitment informs their leadership, sets their priorities, and defines the spiritual tenor they aspire to see evident in the Trinity community.

Drs. Paul and Carol have lived on four continents and led a variety of ministries and institutions. They have led churches in the UK, South Africa and Australia. Additionally, Paul has led institutions of Higher Learning in each of these places.

The Alexander’s have two grown children. Anna is married to Rich, and they have two children, Ava and Tylan; they live in Charlotte, North Carolina. Jason resides in Los Angeles, California. Although they live at great distances from each other, the Alexander family is close and finds ways to spend meaningful time together.
