On Tuesday, August 8, Tallahassee Christian College and Training Center officially launches its new 1717 Hermitage Boulevard campus. The public is invited to a 12 pm – 1 pm ribbon cutting with special speaker Tim Perrier, Chaplain of the Florida House of Representatives. As a volunteer, Mr. Perrier responds to the needs of House members, such as hospital visits, personal meetings for encouragement and prayer, and assisting in memorial services for House members – regardless of religious background.
Following Chaplain Perrier, TCCTC President JoAnne Arnett will lead a group tour through the new campus. The facility offers the Tallahassee community a more spacious, centralized location for Biblically-based academic, professional, and personal development courses. Realizing not everyone can make a noon program, President Arnett will lead Presidents Tours hourly from 8 am – 5 pm. Fall student orientation and registration completes the day from 6 pm – 7 pm.
Masters graduate Ashley Jones is excited for what the future holds for TCCTC. “I’ve been a part of TCCTC for the past 13 years – as a student, a board member, and now a teacher. What keeps bringing me back is that it’s the one place Christians of all denominations and backgrounds are welcome to study God’s Word together. This college truly exemplifies what the Church Body should be: unified in God and walking in love.”
Also looking forward to the new campus is Dr. Ray Bardill, retired dean and professor from Florida State University, past national president of American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy, and a TCCTC Board member. “I was attracted to TCCTC because it provides higher education opportunities from a much needed Christian perspective…. TCCTC offers a variety of educational opportunities to grow in Judeo-Christian life principles.”
Citing “Higher Education for a Higher Purpose,” TCCTC offers cross-denominational Biblically-based workshops and classes for personal growth, professional development and CEUs, as well as Bachelors and Masters degrees in Biblical Studies. This fall, the new campus is the site of a variety of classes and seminars, such as “Business by the Book,” “New Testament Greek,” “Helping the Homeless, Hurting, and Hopeless,” and “Introduction to Christian Theology.” For more information and to register, go to tcctc.org.
