Founded 17 years ago on Christian principles, Trinity Financial Mission was created with the intent to not just help others resolve their financial problems but to help in relieving the emotional burdens that come with excessive debt. With the help of bankruptcy attorneys, CPAs and financial planning professionals, Trinity Financial Mission aims to guide those who are struggling with debt to the financial freedom they seek.
For Christians across the United States, Trinity Financial Mission brings to the table consolidation and settlement services, claiming to help consumers under the heavy burden of debt relieve the stress to bring clients closer to “Him.”
What sets this company’s programs apart is the ability to authorize non-profit service providers to work on behalf of each client. Because they take this approach, fees are typically nominal and assessed according to the financial situation of the client, or so they claim although we were left a little confused by their $10,000 minimum unsecured debt enrollment amount if they claim to work with non-profit affiliates.
During the initial consultation they claim to go over individual finances, the total debt amount and to discuss payment plans and options including whether do-it-yourself, consolidation, a debt management plan or settlement is the best plan. Interested parties can either fill out an online form on the website to express interest in a free consultation with one of the company’s debt experts or they can call in and request more information and set up a consultation over the phone.
Highlights to this company include:
- 17 years of experience
- Free consultation
One of our biggest concerns is their lack of fee structure or company transparency all together. They say they help Christians, but we are unable to discern if they can really help anyone at all. The company has various reviews around the web, although we were unable to find any updated information pertaining to customer satisfaction or even what this company is all about. It seems any information ceases to exist after 2010.
Another concern is their lack of an escrow account or policy. While this can make clients feel a little more independent with their finances, it seems a dedicated account to save funds toward negotiation is the safest method for those with outstanding debts—especially under the requirement of $10,000 or more to be enrolled into their program.
The company claims to handle debt settlement along with debt consolidation, although their website has very little information pertaining to their settlement services and seem to be strictly focused on debt consolidation.
They do not offer an online dashboard allowing client’s the ability to keep track of applicable information with their account. They are not rated with the BBB, although the BBB informs consumers that the company is under review and will be updated soon. In addition, they hold no AFCC or IAPDA accreditation.
Price will vary depending individual circumstance. The initial consultation meeting should provide an estimate in costs per month and overall.
No upfront fees are required with debt settlement services.

Money-Back Guarantee / Cancellation Policy
The site and website mention nothing in regards to a cancellation policy or any type of guarantee.
