Acts 1:8 calls us to reach the ends of the earth as well as our Jerusalem. The Engage Ministry provides opportunities for students to carry the love of Christ to people outside Truett-McConnell College. Through the Engage program, students will have the opportunity to mentor local kids, work with Georgia Mountain Resort Ministries and serve alongside churches in the area. Reaching our Jerusalem with the love of Christ is the main purpose of the Engage Program.

The World Missions Center at Truett-McConnell College is a reality birthed from the heartbeat of Truett-McConnell's President, Dr. Emir Caner. Having 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.
Questions about World Missions center should be directed to Dr. H. Ed Pruitt at ext. 271

Community groups are TMC's small group setting for personal discipleship. Groups are organized in both residence halls and in our campus community at large. Groups are normally student-led and use prayer, Bible study, accountability and outreach to promote fellowship, build community and foster spiritual growth. All students are encouraged to become active participants in one of our community groups.
