Welcome to TCKs for Christ!

TCKs for Christ strives to serve, encourage, and challenge teenage and young adult Christian TCKs in Jesus. They include missionary kids, business kids, military kids, diplomat kids, cross-cultural kids, mixed-cultural kids, domestic TCKs, etc.

The TCK life has its struggles and challenges, and we desire to encourage a TCK in truth and to tell them that they are not alone and that there’s Someone who cares more than they can ever know. Our team consists of TCKs with various backgrounds writing for young TCKs to motivate them to use their gifts for His kingdom and to live victoriously with a firm identity in Jesus Christ.

We hope you enjoy your stay!
