    March 15, 1961 Trinity Chapel Assembly of God was born in the city of Compton, California under the leadership of Grace M. Elliott (affectionately known as “Sister Grace”). Sister Grace was a white woman who was committed to sharing the gospel with inner-city youth through the Bar-None Club. Sister Grace had a heart for children and a love for the Lord that is still evident today. Sister Grace had no idea that her obedience to the Lord would impact so many lives. Many of the children from the  Bar-None Club have grown up to be pastors and teachers of local congregations and or members of Trinity Chapel even today.

   In the late 1960’s, our beloved  dearly Pastor Edward T. Robinson, Sr. joined Sister Grace’s team by becoming the assistant pastor of Trinity Chapel. In 1975, Pastor Robinson accepted his role as senior pastor and is still in position today. Under Pastor Robinson’s leadership, Trinity has become the largest African American congregation in the Southern California Assemblies of God and is the only Assemblies of God church with a pregnancy center that serves women facing unplanned pregnancies.

 

 

 

    Now more than fifty years later, Trinity Chapel Life Center, as it is known today, is still serving the city of Compton, California. Trinity stands as a beacon of light and hope to all. What an honor it is that God has allowed us to weather the storms of life, prevail in the midst of economic crisis and spiritual attacks and maintain our hope of salvation for a hurting and dying world.
