Dear TCCTC Family,
My first day in Tallahassee was incredible! I feel so blessed to be the newest addition to an amazing group of Christians who love the Lord. Here is the honest and straight truth ~ I have walked on the Great Wall of China, entered the Taj Mahal in India, and stood under the Eiffel Tower in Paris, but each of those nice places lacks something that I have found here in my new home in Florida. There is something sweet, kind, and gentle about Southern hospitality that just touches my heart. Do any of those places have the energy of a Seminoles home game, the sweet taste of pecan pie or the warmth that is in every smile that I have seen? I don’t think so. After being on the mission field since 1995, I understand now why Dorothy said in the Wizard of Oz, “There’s no place like home.” God has blessed America and we have great days ahead.
If I had to pick the #1 best part of Tallahassee Christian College and Training Center (TCCTC), it would undoubtedly be pillar of Christian service, love and strength that is Jo Anne Arnett. Jo Anne and I are in touch often. She continues to, serve on the Board of Directors and is a key member of the Presidential Advisory Committee. She is a treasured source of wisdom and guidance for me as I begin the honor and blessing of serving this fantastic community of faith as your new president.
My goal is stability and consistency as we expand on the foundation that has been laid. Together, as a family and a team, God has incredible things in store for the future. I’m excited to put my love for Jesus, focus and energy into serving Christ and His kingdom in Tallahassee and beyond in the months and years to come. I’ll share more specific plans in the near future.
In closing, I just wanted to say, ‘thank you’. I am thankful to the board for their support, and the invitation to serve Jesus, as well as for every member of our TCCTC family. The vision and blessing that God has for us is found in Jeremiah 29:11: For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for prosperity and not for disaster, to give you a hope and a future.
In His Service,
Dr. Gregg Wareham, President
Mrs. Jo Anne Arnett
