Truett-McConnell College cordially invites you to its Annual Golf Tournament.

Our annual golf tournament is an important part of our overall fundraising efforts. Proceeds help fund scholarships, mission trips, academic and building programs, as well as other needs on campus. Please consider supporting TMC financially through a sponsorship, by donating a door prize or silent auction item, or by participating in our annual golf tournament. Your contribution can make a big difference! As a reminder, all tips and mulligans will go to the volunteer students assisting at the golf tournament toward their mission trip to (somewhere).

The mission and ministry of Truett-McConnell College is driven by both an unswerving commitment to God's word and to academic excellence. That is why TMC requires all students to complete our new Great Commission Minor while preparing for their chosen careers.

Spiritual Emphasis Week Impacts the Campus as GOD Moves Among Us

September 1 - 3, Anthony George, Associate Pastor of FBC Atlanta, was the speaker for our annual Spiritual Emphasis Week. Each day, the worship and the messages were used by God to show each of us areas of our lives that are not in line with God's Biblical plan for our lives. Each service, scores of public commitments were made and the impact of the Spirit continues to be experienced across campus. Pray for all of our students, faculty and staff as God works here on your campus.
