May 11, 2014 was a special day of celebration for 37 TCM students, their families and special guests. On that day eight students received their Certificates, 26 received their Master of Arts in Practical Theology degrees and two received their Master of Divinity in Practical Theology degrees. The event was celebrated with worship, including a special message by Dr. David Rice, Pastor at Ancient City Baptist Church, St. Augustine, Florida. After receiving their diplomas a few of the students were asked to share thoughts about their TCM education.
Did you know that including this year's graduates there are 503 Christian leaders from Europe, Central Asia, and the Middle East who have received their degrees through TCM? Your prayers, service, and financial support have helped make that possible. Why is it important?
This past week we received a prayer request via e-mail from a student who lives and serves in the country of Georgia. Even as he is preparing for an upcoming TCM course he is in the midst of preparations for a major Christian event in his country. Here is his prayer request:
"Next week, June 6-8, the Festival of Hope will take place in Georgia (the country). Franklin Graham will be part of it. We have never had something of such extent in Georgia. We pray and expect some 30,000 people to visit the festival during the three days. Please pray for us. Many pastors, including myself, as well as many Christian brothers and sisters of almost all evangelical churches in Georgia have been praying and preparing for the festival for the past year."
It is important because your prayers, service, and financial support have helped prepare these 503 Christian leaders and continues to help equip the more than 900 students who are currently studying at TCM. Whether they are ministering to three or 30 people in their local congregation or 30,000 in a national event many people are hearing the Good News through TCM students and graduates.
Blessings on your journey,
Director of International Services
