Temple Christian College has been blessed by God from its inception in 1983 with a strong biblical basis for its existence. One school, now operating out of two Campuses, Temple Christian College is proud to offer its students the opportunity to experience life in an authentic Christian community. Under the banner of one leadership, we celebrate and encourage the unique life and development of each campus in the knowledge that each location embraces and represents the fullness of the vision.
In celebration of its mile stone 30th year anniversary in 2013, Temple Christian College documented its history in a special celebration booklet which outlined some of the special events that marked its humble beginnings.
