Each year over 60 adult volunteers sign up to be Coaches to journey alongside our student volunteers (Captains) as they prepare to lead their peers at the Conference. Coaches support and walk alongside the Captains as they prepare for bible studies, group activities, and prepare themselves spiritually.
Coaching provides a different lens to see what God is doing in and through this generation. They will have the opportunity to witness first-hand the transforming power of the Gospel in a short period of time.
Why should I serve as a TC Coach?
