TVCI offers several forums each year to provide opportunities for the whole church to be trained in an essential area of discipleship. In addition to providing solid training, forums also offer a good introduction to TVCI programming for both members and visitors.



God and God alone is man's highest good.

The Tech-Wise Family

Do you ever think about your relationship to technology? Have you allowed it to take over your routine and can’t imagine life without it? Regardless of your personal experience, technology is changing us. Andy Crouch, author of The Tech-Wise Family, discusses insights from his book and the consequences technology may have for us as individuals and families.

The Kingdom of God

Many traditional approaches to evangelism focus on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. While this is vital to the Christian faith, the kingdom of God is the greater story of how He accomplishes His redemption of the world. Teaching from the Gospels, Dr.Jonathan Pennington talks about the importance of understanding the gospel in light of the kingdom.

What Is Islam?

With the rise of Islam in recent years, it is imperative that Christians better understand what Islam is as they interact with and serve the Muslim community. Afshin Ziafat, lead pastor of Providence Church in Frisco, shares wisdom and truth as he explains the Islam faith and how Christians can engage Muslims with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Know Your Bible

We all want to know our Bible better. By using the steps of comprehension, interpretation and application, Bible teacher and author Jen Wilkin shows us how everyone has the ability to learn and grow in biblical literacy.

Sharing Your Faith

For us to grasp the importance of evangelism, we need to understand what’s at stake. Teaching from the book of Romans, Zane Pratt talks about the importance of sharing your faith and shares practical ways to do so.

Is Christianity Dying?
