The only people who achieve much are those who want knowledge so badly that they seek it while the conditions are still unfavourable. Favourable conditions never come.

Our Objective

is to provide excellent training for those aspiring to leadership in a Christian ministry context. It is our intention that this training will be as practically relevant as possible so that it can be directly applied to real life ministry.

Proven Leaders

will share from the wealth of their own experience and expertise. We have deliberately selected those who have been significantly fruitful in their specific fields in order to give you the opportunity to engage with highly effective leaders. We have chosen those whose character has been consistent over many years because reputation is no substitute for reality.

The Emphasis

will be on the supremacy of the Scripture as the foundation for all that we seek to teach. There will also be a strong emphasis on the importance of being full of the Holy Spirit and living in vital relationship with him.

The Environment

may be unique. You will be training in a place where people whose lives have been devastated by addiction are being transformed by the power of God. Those who have been forgiven much love much so there is something of a “hothouse” spiritual atmosphere. In addition to this you will be training in a situation where street work among the most marginalised is happening regularly and you will be training in the context of a pioneer church plant in an inner city area.

Opportunities

will be sought to place those who train with us so they can begin ministering within their chosen field and we will offer ongoing mentoring and support to those pursuing ministry. Former students have gone on to serve in Africa, the Far East, North America, Eastern Europe as well as throughout the UK

  • My time at (TCLA) was one of real development. It was a great season of my life where God did such a work not only in preparing me for ministry but also within my own heart. I have been working for Teen Challenge for the past four years and been promoted to serve as a senior support worker. TCLA is a place where God equips you for the practical reality of serving a generation that has no hope. image Bryan Fisher Senior Support Worker, Willoughby House
  • I attended (TCLA) in 1995 because of a call of God to help hurting people. While there I came to know and experience the incredible power of God to change a life. I grew deeper in faith with a greater understanding of God’s Word and his ways. The inspiring teachings and ministry opportunities really helped prepare me for what God had planned. It was an amazing experience and a catalyst for the purpose of God in my life. image Fiona Fallon Executive Assistant, TCUK
