The TCM International Institute develops Christian leaders for significant service.
TCM International Institute develops disciple makers through graduate Christian leadership education to make a global impact by more effectively influencing their churches, cultures, and countries for Christ.
Life-long Learning: Through the development of strong Christian maturity, servant leadership, involvement of diverse cultures, and the transformation character of Christianity, we promote healthy change both in individuals and communities. By establishing a critical mass of strong churches, agencies, and ministries, not only will individual lives be transformed, but the culture of the European and Central Asian countries and cultures will be strengthened through Christ.
Christian Maturity: Through practical educational preparatino for ministry, TCM International Institute trains and fosters indigenous Christian leaders for the purpose of reaching their own countries, cultures, and churches for Christ. In consultation with key leaders throughout Europe and Central Asia, we provide a graduate "field based" learning environment of bi-vocational nationals with a practical focus. It must relate to the needs of adult learners who are already involved in significant ministries throughout Europe and Central Asia.
Servant Leadership: TCM's holistic preparation for leadership is centrally focused on the whole person: head, heart, hands, and feet. Thus, the educational experiences we provde are designed to develop servant leaders spiritually and professionally as well as intellectually. The challenges these Christian Leaders will face in their post-educational ministry will be great in diverse hostile environments. Having an understanding and ownership of what it means to be Christ-like through their servant leadership will be instrumental in their success.
World Christian Vision: TCM advocates non-denominational Christianity based solely on Biblical authority. We do not promote any denomination in Europe or Central Asia, but rather work hand-in-hand with anyone who follows Jesus Christ as Lord in obedience to His Word. We recognize and value the diverse indigenous Christian churches, institutions, and agencies already in place throughout Europe and Central Asia. Therefore, national partnerships exist in the various countries in which TCM works to provide oversight, counsel, guidance, and direction in all TCM activities for the sole purpose of strengthening their cultures through Christ.
