TLC Mission

TLC exists to train student leaders to influence their church and community for Christ.


Hey, we’re glad you’re checking out our site! We are looking forward to two great weeks of TLC next summer and we’re confident you’re going to love it.

We’ve got a great line-up of speakers who understand the needs and struggles of high school students and know how to communicate in a way that will leave you ready to live the truths you have learned.

Our workshops have again been designed to give you practical, “how to” ministry-related training so that you can go home and start a ministry in your church, youth group, school or community. They will cover a variety of topics that will enable you to develop, improve and expand your ministry leadership skills.

You will join hundreds of students from across the country in high energy, God-centered worship, pointed leadership challenges, one-on-one and small group ministry that is focused on evaluating your leadership skills and your own walk with God and plenty of time to just hang-out with both old and new friends.

You’ll be staying in our college dorms and eating in our cafeteria – which makes camp food look like, well . . . camp food! So make sure you register early so that you can get the week you want. If you are serious about ministry, learning how to lead others and influencing them toward Christ – don’t miss TLC!

The leadership track is designed for upper level student leaders. This track will equip student leaders to develop a strategic and intentional ministry in the lives of their peers. This track will include 7 sessions scattered throughout the week in a way that allows these students to remain heavily involved with their youth groups during the week. Participation will require a recommendation and request from their church. Download the schedule here.

We want to share some of those stories with those attending this year and in future years.

Please tell us how TLC affected your Christian walk and your life purpose. These comments will be posted for others to see. We will also be contacting some of you to include in a future video and other promotional materials.


This past summer was my first experience with TLC.  Despite hearing about the conference from friends at BBC, I really didn’t know what to expect.  I enjoyed counseling at TLC for several reasons.  The first is that I was able to spend a lot of time getting to know the students with whom I was working.  One of the major emphases for counselors at TLC is to have meaningful conversations with the students.  I had several opportunities to have significant more

Although TLC is programmed to specifically reach high school students, I believe God worked in my life as a counselor just as much as He did in the lives of the students. I thoroughly enjoyed being able to take part in building relationships with my girls as they shared what issues and struggles they were going through. Some of the most encouraging and more
