Third Culture Kids and Transition with Chad Phillips

Third Culture Kids and Transition with Chad Phillips
Third Culture Kids or TCK’s for short…Who are they and what defines them? How did the term originate? And why is it important for us to understand the unique opportunities and challenges they face? You'll hear about all of this and more with Tim's good friend and guest on the show, Chad Phillips. Chad Phillips is a TCK from South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and The Netherlands. He spent his first 18 years overseas. He also served TCKs internationally in Singapore and Belgium. Chad has been directing International Society of Missionary Kids (ISMK) since 2004, and continues to coach TCKs (and their families) on a global scale. He has an M.A. in Christian Ministries from AGTS, with an emphasis in life coaching and eight years of professional life-coaching experience.  After graduating high school from The American School of The Hague, Chad went to North Central University in Minneapolis, and did his internship in Singapore. It was during his college years that Chad met his beautiful bride, Dargan. Chad and Dargan are parents to two young adult TCK’s, Katherine and Graham. TCK’s are an amazing group of human beings. Tim and his wife Eve are parents to three TCK’s, so they are definitely near and dear to his heart and the motivation for producing this series of episodes about TCK's.  What's your relationship to TCK's, or what could it be? What might be your call to action in response to this conversation? Raising awareness in your church community? Befriending a TCK? Reaching out to the parents of a TCK? Supporting those like Chad and Dargan Phillips who are on the front lines working with TCK’s?  Praying for TCK’s and their families as they adjust and acculturate to new situations and environments?Here's some additional resources on the topic of TCK's:Podcast Episodes:Core Values with Adrianne VerheyenThird Culture Kids with Emma AustinTCK Re-Entry/Transition:https://interactionintl.org/programs/transition-seminar/https://www.barnabas.org/member-care/events/mk-transitional-seminarBooks:Third Culture Kids: Growing Up Among Worlds, by David C.

Third Culture Kids with Emma Austin
Tim's guest for this episode is Emma Austin, a young adult TCK who has spent most of her life living in Central Asia and Turkey. She is also Tim's daughter.Navigating transition from high school to the next thing can be challenging for any young adult, but TCK's bring a unique set of challenges and strengths to the process. Join Tim and Emma as they talk about what it's like to journey with God and surrender to Him through big choices. Follow Emma's blogSupport EmmaNotes:The term third culture kid (TCK) may be new to some.  TCK's are people who were raised in a culture other than their parents' or the culture of their country of nationality, and also live in a different environment during a significant part of their child development years. They typically are exposed to a greater volume and variety of cultural influences than those who grow up in one particular cultural setting. The term applies to both adults and children, as the term "kid" refers to the individual's formative or developmental years.TCKs move between cultures before they have had the opportunity to fully develop their personal and cultural identity. The first culture of such individuals refers to the culture of the country from which the parents originated, the second culture refers to the culture in which the family currently resides, and the third culture refers to the amalgamation of these two cultures. (Source: Wikipedia)Tim and his wife Eve have raised three TCK's, who are now young adults with some stories to tell.Support the showThanks for listening in!
