Become an ACMin Ministry Partner

We would like to invite you, your family, your church or your business to prayerfully consider becoming an ACMin Ministry Partner by pledging a monthly donation of $50, $100, or $200 to the college.  Would you prayerfully consider what sacrifices you might personally make to build the Kingdom of God through the ministry of the Athens College of Ministry? We are convinced that  there is no higher calling than making disciples—that is, seeing believers in Christ move on to maturity and ministry effectiveness.  However, many prospective students are in need of your support in order for their dream of earning a ministry degree without debt to become a reality.  Thank you for supporting the ACMin mission and vision

And my God will meet all of your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” - -Phil. 4:19
