Did attending TCA help you grow in your faith? If so, how?

From weekly chapels with worship and applicable sermons to small ministry opportunities throughout the year and much more, I can firmly say TCA helped me grow in my faith in numerous ways. Specifically, being a part of Student Ministries, I grew in confidence to live out my faith with my peers, share the Gospel with anyone I meet through words and actions, and serve others.

I am currently at Grove City College majoring in Special Education and Early Education. Transitioning from high school to college classes was easy because of the curriculum taught at TCA. I was prepared to be challenged and had numerous studying and rhetoric techniques in place.
