Before you start. Please read important information.
Make it an event!
Organize your chairs, bean bags, balloons, decorations, lights, speakers, stage, and tables. It is important to dedicate a space for the Teen Church Online Experience. When you do this step your students will take it seriously.
Schedule & Promote.
Organize and communicate a designated time for your children's church youth group. It's great when your entire youth group is sharing the TCO experience at the same time.
Download reinforcement resources ahead of time!
If you choose to download reinforcements, please do so ahead of time. It is best to have no interruptions during the TCO experience. This is really important for group settings. It is easier for families to prepare because you can easily start the TCO experience after you have downloaded the reinforcement resources. Reinforcements takes the experience to a whole new level. Reinforcements also allow you to download the video experience and have 100% control on your platform if your are using easy worship, propresenter or any other video player.
Avail yourself for your child or student questions, prayer requests, tears and fears. We hope it will be a fun, life changing experience. Help your students complete their worksheet or activity page if the CCO experience comes with reinforcement resources. All TCO experiences may not come with downloadable reinforcement resource materials. We hope after the TCO experience is over your students will leave ready to be on a mission.

Most TCO experiences can be watched as no cost. If you desire to download a TCO experience, please submit request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Some CCO experiences have worksheets, resource guides, and other reinforcements available for donation.
What does TCO believe?
We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired, and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instruction; that it has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter; that it reveals the principles by which God will judge us, and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions shall be tried.
The true God.
We believe the Scriptures teach that there is one, and only one, living and true God, an infinite, intelligent Spirit, whose name is Jehovah, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness, and worthy of all possible honor, confidence and love; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; equal in every divine perfection, and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.
