The Great Commission Experience from TCM International Institute on Vimeo.
Training Christians for Ministry International Institute's Mission: TCM International Institute develops Christian leaders for significant service.
TCM is inviting CCV students on an experience for young adults over a two-month time period to discover, explore, and experience Christ’s Great Commission; to learn and to practice how to walk like Jesus did. Experience includes online interaction and a 10-day trip to Central Europe (Austria and Hungary [or Czech Republic]) from July 11-22, 2018.
This course contributes to the student’s understanding of God’s redemptive work for the world (Psalm 67:2-3) and the student’s individual involvement in the completion of that work (Matt. 28:19-20). Some people may be called to cross-cultural ministry, but all are called by God to be a witness in their context no matter their location or vocation. Here is the SYLLABUS for more information: TCM 2018 GX SYLLABUS .pdf
