My journey to find Christ has been amazingly perpendicular with my time at TCI. God's plan is always perfect, always beautiful in His time. He uses TCI and everyone involved in it to help with my spiritual growth. It has been a revealing eye-opener moment. TCI plus His truth have inspired me for a full-time commitment to Him and to the mission that is the great commission...His love is real and pure. - Aboe Gaffar, TCI Alumni Class of 2019 -
The reason why I joined TCI is because I wanted to get to know myself the way God sees me and created me for. I wanted to discover my purpose in life so that I could focus on being the best version of myself and be able to fulfill His purpose in my life. Also, I got to deepen my knowledge about the Word of God so that I can help others in finding their purpose as well as here on Earth. - Vania, TCI Alumni Class of 2020 -
