Over a year ago, I met a beautiful young woman named Clarissa Choo. She, like me, had grown up in several countries. She, like me, had parents who were business people. And she, much more than me, loved Jesus.
She had started a “TCK Letters” ministry… sending out newsletters to third culture kids to encourage them in their walk with God. On the other hand, I was just starting to write and blog more for and about third-culture kids. It was a perfect comradery. We began to write weekly and dream and plan. I remember when we started a TCK group chat and discussed what other ministries would be possible.
Out of the small community we created grew Truth4TCKs, my organization that offers conferences and seminars for Jesus-following TCKs.
However, that wasn’t the only ministry that grew out of our community. I want to share with you my dear friends’ project, TCKs For Christ. Their website launched today!
TCKs for Christ is a website ministry that strives to serve, encourage, and challenge teenage Christian third culture kids and young adult TCKs. These include business kids, cross-cultural kids, mixed-cultural kids, diplomat kids, etc.

Where is home? Do I have several, or none at all? What qualifies as a home? …
Questioning Home is a Difficult Insecurity
It bites deep, leaving us vulnerable and depressed. To make matters worse, this malady is not physical; it cannot be cured by drugs or remedies. This malady is of the spirit, and so we must turn to the One who created our spirit.
This answer was first given to me at TCK Camp Uganda 2016. The time spent in this camp was world-rocking. Sermons were preached, hearts were changed … and homes were found. …
