  • Encourage and equip parents to disciple their own children.
  • Build and develop a volunteer team of leaders who love youth and invest in the spiritual lives of youth in the church.

  • Parents at TCC feel equipped and prepared to disciple their teenage children.
  • Volunteers in your ministry feel encouraged and supported by you in their work with youth.
  • Families are drawn to TCC, in part, because they know their teenage child will be cared for and discipled well.

Staff Team Values: Our purpose is to help every person in the city of Hillsboro experience and embrace the Trinitarian love of God. In order to accomplish this, we are committed to the following values:

  • Follow Jesus. Nothing is more important than your relationship with Christ. 
  • Remember your order. You are first a disciple of Jesus; Second, a spouse (if married); Third, a parent (if applicable); And fourth, a staff member of TCC. Don’t get that order confused. If you are succeeding as a staff member, but failing as a spouse, you have already failed at your job. 
  • Stay humble. God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. Leading a church is difficult enough. We don’t need God’s opposition, too. 
  • Work hard, sabbath harder. Make sure your job is done and done well. But also make sure you are caring for yourself mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally, etc. Pick a day. Disconnect. Enjoy time with your family, worship, and rest.
  • Serve people, not programs. Don’t lose sight of the fact that the church is people. Meet with people. Spend time with people. Pray for people. If you are too busy to care for people, you are too busy. Don’t fall into the trap of running a “church”.   
  • Pursue excellent simplicity. Simplicity is difficult. Simplicity with excellence is nearly impossible. Everyone and everything will try to make the church more complex. Resist. Pursue excellence in ministry, and keep it simple. 
  • Avoid silos. We are on the same team. We work together, support each other, and care for each other. If one of our ministries suffers, we all suffer.
