WELS Tucson Campus Ministry

WELS Tucson Campus Ministry (TCM) is all about connecting people ages 18-25 to Christ. TCM does this in three primary ways: 1) learning God's Word in worship and Bible study, 2) developing meaningful Christian friendships, and 3) serving others out of thanks to God. TCM is also a great way to find out what Christianity is all about.
