Twin Cities Christian Foundation

Organization Description: 

Smart Christian Giving
When you choose to partner with Twin Cities Christian Foundation, you do more than gain an informed advisor in giving. You encounter a ministry. Every day, TCCF helps people recognize and appreciate the eternal significance of charitable giving. By serving individuals, families, churches, ministries, and professional advisors, TCCF plays a vital role in funding the Great Commission. While we are not the ‚"hands and feet‚" of ministry ‚– we‚’re not the ones teaching or serving hot meals to the needy ‚– we provide an empowering link in the chain of ministry.

The staff at TCCF believes that all financial decisions have a spiritual component. The Bible teaches that we are merely stewards of the money God has entrusted to us. As Christians, we are called to support God‚’s Kingdom through our finances. Therefore, it makes sense that whenever possible we should not only choose to give, but to give wisely. TCCF enhances a steward‚’s Biblical obedience and impact.

Community Engagement
Due to our unique heritage tied to a private grant-making foundation, TCCF has over 25 years of ministry relationships in the Twin Cities, across the U.S., and abroad. We have an ‚"insider‚" perspective on many, many giving opportunities - some managed by TCCF and others that are managed by trusted partners and ministries. We are an advocate for further engagement in community and can serve to connect individuals to high impact giving opportunities that fit the calling of our clients and partners when that service is desired.

A Culture of Prayer
At TCCF, prayer is an integral part of our culture and daily operations. We pray for our clients and partners with determination and consistency. Moreover, we pray for God‚’s will to be uniquely worked out in and through the lives of our clients and strategic partners. TCCF also maintains a dedicated and trusted team of intercessors whose purpose is to provide this type of prayer covering.

Non-endowment Building
TCCF is a non-endowment building foundation. We will never claim the principal balance of our clients‚’ accounts and make it part of our own corpus. We seek to be a conduit, not necessarily a repository for Kingdom resources.
Jesus calls his followers to be generous. Our ministry at TCCF aims to create a culture of generosity in the Church of the Twin Cities. And, while many of our clients maintain endowments for specific ministry objectives, TCCF is proponent of current giving when it is done wisely and joyfully.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

The Nicene Creed is an ecumenical statement of faith that captures the essence of our Christian beliefs. At TCCF we share the same core beliefs that the Church has espoused since the fourth century:

We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made. Who, for us men and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.

And we believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets. And we believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and we look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
