TC Beyond Stories

Read and relive the stories and reflections told by some of our  volunteers during the course of TC Beyond this year

When I signed up to serve again with SMU this year, I thought I knew what to expect. I expected a conference I know and was familiar with, on where I knew my role and function in. TC 2020 was not what I was expecting.

While the first couple months leading up to TC seemed about the same, 202 came and changed everything. In the matter of weeks, TC changed drastically and into a new frontier I never expected I to go – online.

When...

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for calling me to serve at Teens Conference this year, and for giving me the faith and courage to respond to your calling. I admit that, in previous years, when a younger sister in Christ had asked me to consider serving as a coach, every year I chose not to serve for self-centred reasons. For one, I didn’t want to use my vacation time, because I wanted to guard those days for rest and relaxation...

This year’s theme, No Rival, had a great impact on me as someone who prefers planning, structure, and familiarity. I have been to a lot of TCs and this year was my 15th one. I was pretty familiar with the structure and having already experienced a lot of things over the years, to a certain extent I knew what to expect in general. You would think that by this time around, at just a little over double the age of when I first att...

This year’s TC, and events leading up to TC, was the biggest trust exercise God has given me. It’s like when you do a trust fall with someone, but now you’re ten feet up, blindfolded, spun around a couple of times, and discombobulated. You barely make out a voice from the ground floor whispering, “Trust me.” Then BAM, you get shoved off the side of the building, every instinct in you screams, “Save yourself!” whilst every emot...

I am so grateful that God has placed me on Media for the past two years. Through this experience, I have grown in my understanding of who Jesus is and the ways that He works. It has pushed me to continue growing in my faith and love for Him. I have also been surrounded by a community of believers unlike any other. They have struggled with me, encouraged with me, and kept me accountable.

In my first year, I experienced a lot of...

Looking back, I would have never expected that Teen’s Conference 2020 would go virtual, or that REC team would only be able to serve in person for 1 day. We went through a lot of struggles and had to overcome a lot of obstacles, especially on the 2 days before the conference actually started. But regardless of all that, I can honestly do nothing but praise the Lord.

With regards to TC, I have served in multiple ministries, from...

This has been my second year serving on REC team but fourth year overall for serving at Teens Conference! Needless to say, I am sure that TC2020 has definitely been a unique experience for all volunteers and attendees. In REC, we were all preparing as if Teens Conference would run normally at RHCCC – sorting out which games to play, practicing our dances, and running through our Stage Time. However, the first adjustment in chu...

The biggest God moment I witnessed was how that because of His grace, leadership decided to not give up on TC this year. God is bigger than any pandemic or public pressures. He's unified hearts even though everything was a mess. He knew this would happen, He prepared us and He knew that we would take it in stride. God remained at the centre of it all and because of that, everything turned out okay and everyone is still encoura...

God showed me the power of a testimony. The testimony I shared with my team was the first time I ever talked about the harsher details that I thought were relevant to where I am today with God. I couldn’t have been more scared to talk into my phone to a bunch of people on the other side. When I talked, I felt like I couldn’t control my tongue and my words where coming out wrong because of my nervousness. It didn’t go as I orig...

After hearing that we were no longer able to meet up with our coaches and co-caps, I was sort of disappointed. I remember feeling really nervous about the next few days and thinking that there was going to be a lot of miscommunication, because when we were together we could talk about it before sharing with the attendees. However after the second day of TC, I began to see this whole situation as God's greater plan for me, beca...
