Welcome to TBC Rockford

At TBC Rockford, our Mission is to Know, Love and Serve God while helping others to do the same. We believe in God’s Word — all of it! We all need a Savior and only Jesus can be that Savior. Through Jesus, we are redeemed!

. . . making a difference
for children who have
​arrived in the US, many miles from their homelands, and needing caring acceptance, reassurance, and practical help, all in the name of Jesus.

​​​The Welcome Project is a compassionate, practical outreach to welcome refugee children to the Rockford/Stateline area. Each day for one week, children are registered and welcomed to the TBC facility for a carefully planned day of singing, reading, math skills, art projects, life skills, gym, and Bible stories, as well as two meals.

TBC Rockford supports this home-grown international missionary based in Kajiado, Kenya. Their focus has been to visualize a new framework to resolve deep-seated poverty issues with long-term solutions around 5 pillars: clean water, education, work, healthcare, and worship.
