Service and Missions

Through life experiences, service and mission opportunities and mentoring programs, TCA provides its students with the ability to lead and serve every day. From holding doors as a line leader in Lower School to traveling locally or globally to bless others, all students discover that to lead well is to serve well in Christ’s name.

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ ” 
—Matthew 25:40

Students gather to write notes of encouragement to fellow classmates and promote fellowship and unity.
