TCA Alumni Spotlight: Lindsay Miller
Lindsay Miller graduated from Trinity Christian Academy in 2012. Raised in Jacksonville, her roots run deep in the Trinity community. “I have grown up at Trinity my whole life,” she shares. Her family had a strong desire to pursue a Christian-based education, so the decision to attend Trinity Christian Academy was an easy one. “It was important to my parents to place me in a Christian school when I was little.”
That decision helped Lindsay flourish in her relationship with God from an early age and keep Him at the center of her education. “Growing up at Trinity, it allowed me to stay in an environment where Christ was always a part of the conversation.”
In reflecting on her time as a student at Trinity, Lindsay remembers her own dedication and hard work. “I worried about my grades a lot; I would have tried to take more pressure off of myself.” She reminds current students the importance of focusing on their goals, without forgetting to enjoy the journey to reaching them. “School is your job right now. That’s all it is, a job. Nonetheless, it is a job that you are responsible for right now. Do the best job that you can do, enjoy it, and leave the rest up to the Lord.”
In sharing her personal journey, it seems Lindsay has taken her own advice. Since graduating from Trinity, she has gone on to pursue two college degrees, leads an impactful career, and is enjoying marriage and motherhood with her husband Ryan and their 18-month-old daughter Scarlette. They currently live in Jacksonville.
Lindsay completed her Bachelor of Art degree in Psychology at the University of North Florida and a Master of Art degree in Human Services: Counseling from Liberty University. However, Lindsay’s connection to Trinity didn’t stop after college. Staying local has allowed her to continue playing an active role in the Trinity community.
“I work in another ministry that falls under the same umbrella… and I am still very connected to the Trinity family.” That ministry is the Trinity Rescue Mission, a non-profit homeless shelter serving the Jacksonville community. Lindsay serves as Director of Women and Children Programs there, helping women learn individualized life skills to build a sustainable future for themselves and their children. These programs offer a variety of classes such as learning job skills, coping skills dealing with mental health and addiction, or simply offering childcare for single mothers.
Lindsay shares the importance of keeping God as the focal point in all areas of her life. Pursuing a career with Trinity Rescue Mission allows her to transform lives and help end hunger and homelessness through a Christ-centered approach.
“It is important to me that there is nothing separate from God. He is interwoven into every aspect of my life.” This is a core belief that Lindsay has always valued, and one that continues fueling joy in her transition from Trinity student to working professional, and in marriage, motherhood and beyond. “He is what keeps me safe and constantly in joy, no matter what happens.”
