TGC Courses is designed to help people around the world learn more about God and the Christian life. We have tried to reduce barriers to entry, creating a place where you can come to know and love God and the holy Scriptures in a more profound way.

TGC Courses takes a different approach to online learning in several ways:

  1. It’s free. You don’t need to pay in order to learn. While some courses will link to other paid resources, the core of the content is delivered without cost. TGC Courses is entirely funded by generous donations by those who value this kind of initiative.
  2. It’s open. You don’t need to sign-in or give up your personal information in order to begin learning. This is designed to make the content easily shareable via social media and less restrictive for those with privacy or security concerns.
  3. It’s curated. By our nature, TGC is a coalition that helps various ministries multiply their strengths together. In a similar fashion, TGC Courses serves up the best-of-the-best content from various partner ministries in order to provide a library of learning content.
  4. It’s global. As of 2019, over 1,000,000 individual courses have been accessed by over 300,000 learners from almost every country in the world. A dedicated Spanish courses site has been launched, and other in-language sites are on the horizon.
