Equipping Students through Service

Talents For Christ directors from several participating states met at the GARBC Ministry Resource Center on August 27 and 28, along with five GARBC personnel, to plan ways to strengthen and improve the TFC program. The directors came with a passion and commitment for the TFC program and formulated several new initiatives.

We hope churches will take advantage of this excellent program to help develop your students’ skills. Look for new information about TFC in the next issue of E-Info.
