Spreading the Word

The Lord is doing some wonderful things here at the ACMin, as we remain committed to "equipping heads and hearts to serve as His hands and feet in the world". Hear stories of students whose lives have been radically impacted for the good, faculty who are more energized than ever in their calling as teacher/mentors, and a host of supporters throughout the Athens community who see the critical need that the college is helping to meet, for the glory of His Name. Hear their thoughts and insights here, and pray about how you might personally participate in God's good work at the Athens College of Ministry.

Faculty Spotlight: Phyllis Kiser

Seven years ago when I was in seminary to become a counselor, God called me to do two things—to help people understand their sexuality and to bring the message of sexual wholeness to the Church.  I am passionate about helping people understand God’s design for sexual wholeness because it is my calling.  Most people, including people in the Church, have a very secular understanding of human sexuality because what most people know about sex, they learned from MTV or worse. Dr. Wilbur was very intentional about including the Sexual Wholeness class in the ACMin ministry curriculum because sexual wholeness is an essential element in ministry preparedness. I am humbled and honored to teach at ACMin. I believe that one student at a time, one life at a time, one pastor at a time, one family at a time, the Church can take back sex from the world. I absolutely love knowing that the God’s Design for Sexual Wholeness class at ACMin is preparing the bride to meet her bridegroom, Jesus, one day.  And, oh, what a glorious day that will be!

New Year - New Heart: Prayer Workshops January 11th

Start the New Year off with a renewed heart for the Lord through effective prayer.
