TFC Finishes Spring Choir Tour

The Toccoa Falls College Choir presented the final performance of its Spring Choir Concert Tour at the First Alliance Church of Toccoa, on March 25th. 

The Toccoa Falls College Choir has been in existence for nearly 100 years and was formed in the early days of the institution. The choir has toured in many parts of the United States and around the world, performing sacred music concerts in churches, schools, and community venues. Under the direction of Dr. Tom Council for the past 17 years, selected members of the choir have performed at Carnegie Hall on numerous occasions and provided concert ministries in Hong Kong, Thailand, South Korea, Israel, and Bulgaria. The next international trip will take them to Germany and Poland during the summer of 2018.

Nestled in the hills of northeast Georgia and located in a valley formed by waters that cascade down a 186-foot waterfall, Toccoa Falls College is a place where God has been at work in the lives of His people since its founding in 1907. R. A. Forrest, the founder of the college, referred to the college as “a tree of God’s planting.”

Toccoa Falls College is a training location where the heart and mind are challenged, inspired, broken, and developed. The TFC President, Dr. Bob Myers, often reminds students, faculty, and staff that this is a location were “godly character is developed with intellect.” This does not happen in an isolated venue separated from the concerns and problems of this world. The college has literally come through a fire and a flood; has experienced the sudden and unexpected death of students, staff, and faculty; and has faced financial challenges. Yet, through it all God has been faithful and continues to establish His “tree” and broaden its canopy.

Today, Toccoa Falls College rejoices in hosting over 30 majors; sporting events and various student activities fill student’s schedules; engagement with the local communities and nations broaden the life experience of students, faculty, and staff. The mission of Toccoa Falls College is to cultivate a uniquely Christian learning community that integrates the pursuit of truth with godly character to produce graduates prepared both personally and professionally for service. This impact is felt throughout the world as current students and graduates bring their knowledge, skills, and the hope provided through the transforming work of Christ to the peoples of the world.

In addition to regional accreditation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and membership in the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU), Toccoa Falls College is an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM).
