Imagine co-founding a nonprofit college and serving there for more than three decades.

In her upcoming book, “God Uses Imperfect People,” Jo Anne Arnett (President Emeritus) of Tallahassee Christian College and Training Center (TCCTC), details the walk of faith in serving more than 4,000 students here in Tallahassee.

In addition to serving the faith community of Leon County and beyond, not one of these students has a single penny in college debt from attending TCCTC.

To honor her for her faithful service, the college recognized her as the 2022 “Faith and Profession” recipient. This award is presented for exemplary public service to the Tallahassee Christian community. Past honorees have included Les Akers of Legacy Toyota, J. Everitt Drew of SouthGroup, Justice Major B. Harding and Karen B. Moore of Moore Inc.

This event was held on Tuesday, April 19, at the Golden Eagle Country Club in northern Leon County. The introduction was given by Fred Thompson, a distinguished forensic accountant and Florida Supreme Court mediator. The event chairperson was Ginny Sapp, who serves of TCCTC’s board of directors. The benediction was given by Ps. Ivey Williams, who also serves in the FAMU administration.

For the past three decades, TCCTC has served a unique role in the Tallahassee Christian Community. At its founding, the aim was to establish a Bible College and training center rolled into one. It has filled the gap between people called to serve in Sunday school to those who are training to go to seminary.

The current courses include “An Introduction to Systematic Theology,” “Jesus Christ in all the Scriptures,” “How to Reach Millennials Without Watering Down the Gospel” and “Introduction to Biblical Counseling.”

In addition, there are seminars such as, “Cultural Collisions: How to Deal With the Conflicts of Today” plus “Human Trafficking and Immigration: A Faithful Response to Modern Day Slavery, Immigration and Migration”

For more information, visit tcctc.org or call (850) 513-1000. Tallahassee Christian College and Training Center is located at 1717 Hermitage Blvd., Suite 102 and has a library with more than 10,000 theological books.
