About Us

Hello Web Surfer,

Greetings in the precious name of our Savior Jesus Christ! Thanks for taking the time to stop by the TCM website. The site has needed to be updated for some time and it is an ongoing process. Although I am not a professional web developer, I do know that I like simple sites without an excess of confusing choices. I have tried to keep this site simple. Your comments are welcome. Write to if there is something you would like to see included.

In Christ,

Ben Anderson


Things to Come Mission (TCM) was founded in 1955 by Herbert Palmer. It has been ministering continuously throughout the world for 50 years.


TCM is dedicated to the task of worldwide evangelism through the methods of the Apostle Paul. This involves the preaching of the gospel of salvation through faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the training of believers for ministry and leadership, and the establishing of indigenous, local churches on all fields where we minister.


TCM is committed to proclaiming the distinctive message that was entrusted to the Apostle Paul as stated in Ephesians 3:1-9. This message of the supremacy of God's super-abundant grace is what guides every aspect of our ministry. We believe that it is by grace we are saved, sanctified, sealed and it is through grace we live lives which honor and glorify Christ. Our doctrinal statement reflects this commitment.

What Makes TCM Unique?

Financial Policy

It is the policy of Things to Come Mission that 100% of all gifts will be given to the individuals or ministries to which they are designated by the donor. Home office personnel are expected to raise their own support and administrative costs come from money given for that purpose. We believe this policy respects the desire of the donor and relieves the individual missionaries of the burden of administrative costs.

Support of Nationals

TCM has throughout its history encouraged the support of national pastors, teachers and evangelists. Missionaries and nationals work together as a team. When necessary, it is appropriate for those with greater financial resources to help those with less in order that the ministry may progress.

Individual Missionary Initiative

While TCM advises missionaries it gives them freedom to determine their field of service, type of ministry and level of financial support. We believe this high degree of individual initiative allows the missionary flexibility in seeking the Lord's will and direction in his life and ministry.
