Brammer Chapel


Brammer ChapelTrinity's Brammer Chapel and Center for Art & Communication is located on the fifth floor of the Campus Center. The space was made possible through a generous donation by George and Jackie Brammer, farmers and residents of north central Idaho. The chapel was named for George’s parents, the late Otto and Goldia Brammer, who exemplified lives of service to the church and its outreach.

The gift supports both spiritual formation and digital literacy, key areas emphasized in the college’s strategic plan. The project serves as a tangible expression of Trinity’s desire to integrate visual art, music, and worship.

With the worship space at its center, the chapel includes areas for students to engage in musical composition, painting, and graphic design.

"Young Christians today care about spoken and written ideas, but they increasingly resonate with expressions of faith through art, symbol, and sound," said the Rev. Erik Samuelson, Campus Pastor and Director of Spiritual & Vocational Formation.

An open house celebrating the new Brammer Chapel was held for students and employees on March 6, 2012 with the first chapel worship service held March 7. In addition to the worship space, the floor boasts a visual communication lab, audio booth, Acorn Learning Center, faculty offices, the President’s Office, and student study and social areas. A public dedication of the chapel and fifth floor was held Sept. 28, 2012.
