The World Missions Center at Truett-McConnell College is a reality birthed from the heartbeat of Truett-McConnell’s President, Dr. Emir Caner. Dr. Caner had a heart for world missions long before he became president. His involvement in taking the Gospel to the nations convinced him of the absolute necessity of a World Missions Center at Truett-McConnell College. Within his first year as President, Dr. Caner’s vision became a reality. WMC@TMC exists to better prepare students and Georgia Baptist Churches to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations.
