TCP is a Summer Opportunity for CO Students to learn what laboring in the workplace looks like. Students and graduates can taste and see what it's like to be a laborer off the campus in the lost neighborhood or workplace.
At Campus Outreach, our mobilization strategy is organized around the “lost worlds” our graduates will find themselves in after college; back to the college campus, the neighborhood & workplace, or cross-cultural overseas missions.
Our summer projects are nuanced in ways that stimulate vision and equipping for the college campus (STP) and global outreach (CCP). TCP is designed to help students gain vision for their city, workplace, and ministering right where they're at.
The Twin Cities project is our team's best training ground for intentionally casting vision for "the lost world" of the city. We meet each Thursday night at the Open Book Coffee Shop downtown Minneapolis to hear guest speakers talk on a variety of topics that will engage TCP participants to learn how to labor in their workplace and neighborhood.
Last year we had past CO Alumni, local Bethlehem Pastors and leaders share about:
- how life after college getting connected to a local church is different than live while involved in college ministry
- how community looks different post college
- stories of developing relationships and engaging coworkers with the gospel
- what engaging our neighbors and culture looks like in the post-modern context we live in
- how to practically think about a personal budget and stewarding your finances
To review some of last years messages, check out the TCP Talks from last year:
We will also worship together at Bethlehem Baptist Church each weekend.
The TCP will be lead by the TCP Lead Team(Nick Stromwall and Peter Sontag). We will have several students investing as group leaders throughout the summer intentionally investing in students during our weekly Theme Meeting and small group breakouts.
We would love to have you invest your summer in the Twin Cities by joining the Twin Cities Project. Applications are open now. There is a non-refundable $50 down payment upon applying. Students are encouraged to help raise support to cover the cost of the TCP.
Hope to see you this summer!
