Tallahassee Christian College and Training Center is the recipient of a $10,000 grant from the Charles A. Frueauff Foundation and Trustee Dr. Al McCully to expand Social Services and Counseling Classes offered at the college. Such TCCTC classes are taught by experienced and knowledgeable faculty who are also practicing professionals in our community.
President Jo Anne Arnett reflected, “We couldn’t be more honored by this gift to expand these popular programs of study at TCCTC. Because many of our students choose employment in nonprofit agencies and ministries, they encounter families and children who are poor, hungry, homeless, ill and facing desperate situations of all kinds. Our counseling and social services classes provide the knowledge and skills essential to serving those in need.“ TCCTC alumni have worked with Big Bend Hospice, Lighthouse Children’s Home, Chelsea House and Good Samaritan Network, Grace Mission, and other local nonprofit service organizations.
Tallahassee Christian College and Training Center offers Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees in Biblical Studies. Students of all ages, backgrounds, and denominations also take courses for professional CEUs and personal growth. Over 26 years, TCCTC has worked with over 400 area congregations, 42 denominations, 200 faculty members, 3280 students, has offered over 1700 courses, and offers an unparalleled theological library of over 9000 items. By preparing students for service and ministry in all aspects of life, TCCTC’s impact is felt throughout north Florida, south Georgia and around the world.
