ACMin Newsletter - September 2012

Welcome ACMin Students

The first ever fall semester at the Athens College of Ministry kicked off August 16th with undergraduate and graduate students seeking degrees in ministry as well as a handful of students who have come to audit courses this semester for their personal Spiritual growth.  The ACMin Board of Trustees wants to thank students, faculty, and all of our supporters as well as the members of Watkinsville First United Methodist Church for helping us get off the ground in amazing ways!  All glory and praise to our Lord and King!  In photo (left) Board of Trustee member, Jeremy Duggins, leads ACMin students in opening praise and worship during Student Orientation held August 10th. 

From Dara Balinski, an undergraduate student from Pennsylvania, "--Thank you to everyone who has helped make ACMin possible. As soon as I walk into class, I feel God's presence pouring over me with an unexplainable peace. I have experienced Him and grown in every class so far. God is using this school and everyone who has helped make it a reality to build me up so that I can accomplish the amazing plans He has for me while I'm here and after I leave. I praise Him for how He has used all who have contributed in some way as the "first fruits" in this school, knowing that you will all share in the blessings He has in store for ACMin and for the Athens community."
