What is TLC Bible College?

The Love of Christ (TLC) Bible College is a (c)3 tax-exempt, non-profit, non-denominational organization dedicated to making followers of the Lord Jesus and fishers of men.  

We are here for one reason, to glorify Lord Jesus and because He asks us to make disciples and build His Kingdom.   We hope you can find the courage and faith to do the same in your life, to make a difference, an eternal difference, a legacy that you belong to the Master. 

TLC Bible College is dedicated to the evangelization and discipleship of new people throughout the world and providing support for the homeless, incarcerated and sick (Matthew 25:40-46). We also focus on healing and restoring those who have been sexually, physically or spiritually abused or neglected.  

TLC Bible College operates solely on donations from caring, mission-minded individuals and churches.

Prison Ministry

Dr. Jeff met with one of our TLC Students in San Antonio, Texas.  Henry Teneyuca is a fine student who finished the doctorates program.  He has plans to build his own ministry and make converts for the Lord.  He wants to call this ministry “Rugged Cross Ministry”.    He is a fine example of an ambassador and someone who impresses me, someone that I would want as my own pastor.  Full of fire and love.  He is a world changer.

We have many students who went on to super rare and important ministries….  From homeless to veterans to rock stars and many in to professional ministry.   We also have many who will never leave prison and yet they have a wonderful mission inside.   We have super stars who are making disciples inside like Matthew Engelbrecht and Jessie Stephenson, and ones who even started international super ministries like Alfred Hubbard.   I have many more who are building the Kingdom.   Some are in conventional ministry and others are doing God’s work in some unusual fashion.   Some are making converts in their homes and workplaces and will never be in “official ministry” and that’s okay too. One reason I believe these broken people are being used to build the Lord’s Kingdom is that we are in the final days and the Lord needs workers for the harvest.    He seems to prefer the people who can relate to His own life of rejection and imprisonment. I like to think that these wonderful ambassadors are in my secret mafia, but in reality, these are the Lord Jesus’s warriors and I’ve been blessed to know them.

I just wanted to remind our students that there is hope and work for all, and I encourage you to learn as much as possible and as soon as your heart is soft, it seems the Lord places these students into wonderful ministries.   I want to meet with all of my precious ambassadors to encourage you in your work.

God bless forever…   I am on the left hand side, Henry on the right…

Biblical Education

TLC Bible College offers distance training for students who desire a biblical education but do not have the financial resources to attend traditional residential college programs or are incarcerated. TLC Bible College has no tuition or charges for distance learning ministry education program. We have one mission, tell the World about Jesus, his amazing love and make disciples.  Many students have gone on to start ministries, including pastoring churches, counseling or chaplains.

Ministry certifications and degree programs (distance learning only) is available to students wanting to learn more about ministry and God.   


We believe that regeneration of the heart by the Lord Jesus Christ is the only answer to changing the behavior of inmates and saving souls.  Rehabilitation of inmates cannot be lasting or effective until there is first a heart change that comes from an individual becoming a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ.
