Supporting ACMin Students

We hope that you will prayerfully consider supporting the ACMin Student Scholarship Program with your gifts so that students who have significant financial needs can fulfill the call that Our Lord has placed on their hearts.  One student recently wrote, "I truly want to enroll, but cannot do so on my own because I don't have any way to cover the tuition."  If you are able, please consider supporting ACMin students by making your donation online or by mail. With your help, ACMin students can engage in Christ-centered Kingdom transformation by serving as His hands and feet. Thank you for your faithful generosity. Gifts to ACMin are tax deductible.

Other Happenings

Connecting with Area Christian Service Organizations

ACMin leadership will meet with leaders of local Christian service organizations on Monday, February 16th, to learn how ACMin students can best serve those in need as Christ's hands and feet through the Faith-in-Action apprenticeship program.  ACMin is grateful to so many local Christian service organization leaders for lending their experience and expertise to the school's efforts.
