Apply for TCL
Applications for the summer of 2020 are NOT YET available. We hope to begin the application process no later than November of 2019. Please note, acceptance to TCL in 2019 does not guarantee acceptance in 2020.
Selection for TCL is based on the quality of your application, references, and your reputation with others. Be aware that all of these areas are given equal weight in selecting our TCL participants. You must apply, be accepted, and register (which includes paying your deposit of $50) in order to hold your spot in the program.
Once notification is placed on our home page that says TCL applications are now available, please apply. An application is fully submitted once the application and reference forms are received. If asked to register, you MUST provide the $50 deposit, regardless of the manner in which registration takes place. (i.e., if the office registers you, please be prepared to make the $50 deposit).
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. These must be done in each year that you apply for TCL.
What happens next
Once LBC receives your application, our next step is to review it and arrange for the application interview. The interview process is a very important part of the TCL application.
If you are accepted
You will receive an email containing a link for you to REGISTER for TCL online. Registration which includes payment of the deposit is necessary for you to reserve your spot. Do not assume acceptance but look for it in your e-mails. Once you are accepted, please register soon thereafter. If this process is not completed in a timely manner and there is a waiting list, your acceptance could be rescinded. LBC would like to have all of our TCL participants registered by the time summer camp begins.
Should you run into any problem or want to confirm that we received your application, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
