Apply for TCL
Applications open now!
Selection for TCL is based on the quality of your application, references, and your reputation with others. You must apply, be accepted, register, and pay your deposit of $50 to hold your spot in the program.
Click below to apply. An application is fully submitted once the application and reference forms are received. Applications that are submitted by February 28 will be given priority in processing and will receive a response by March 15. Applications can still be submitted after February 28.
The References (TCL & Jr. TCL only)
Applicants for TCL and Jr. TCL need to submit two references: 1 parent reference and 1 church leader reference. The parent reference is to be filled out by a parent or guardian. The church leader reference is to be completed by a pastor, elder or ministry leader at your church.
What happens next
Once LBC receives your application, our next step is to review your application. We may call you for an interview. Assuming that your application is complete by February 28, and assuming we have a DCM in place, acceptance letters will start going out on March 15.
If you are accepted
You will receive an email containing a link for you to REGISTER for TCL online. Registration and deposit are necessary for you to reserve your spot.
Should you run into any problem or want to confirm that we received your application, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
