The Trinity Life Church was a nondenominational congregation whose ministry was "dedicated to helping you discover and maximize your potential." It was founded in 1996 by J. Scott Moore and his wife Traci in their home. Within ten years the church had overfilled its 600-seat sanctuary and commenced construction of a $5 million, 2,500-seat facility on their 40-acre campus at 7555 Dickey Springs Road near I-459 between McCalla and Hoover. The new building was completed in 2007.

The church's new worship facility was designed to accommodate the needs of video recording for television and, from its opening has hosted nationally-televised Trinity Broadcasting Network programs with motivational speaker Myles Munroe, and musicians John Tesh and Carman. Mike Miller is the church's music pastor. Bernard Omukubah leads the church's foreign missions program.

HealthSouth founder Richard Scrushy, who founded his own nondenominational Grace and Purpose Church, has been a financial supporter Trinity Life. Scrushy and Scott co-founded the Kingdom Builders Institute, a coalition of nondenominational congregations of which both churches are members. Kingdom Builders planned to open a Bible college at Trinity's campus in 2008.

Moore's financial dealings with Scrushy caused turmoil in the church. In 2010 the congregation placed the church campus up for sale, eventually losing it to forcelosure. Huffman's Worship Center Christian Church purchased it from Wachovia Bank to use as a branch campus. The Moores' ministry continues with the "Destiny Today" cable access program and the Clothe The World Foundation charity.
