2018-20 Scholarship Fund Drive What if every Youth Pastor, every Worship Leader, or every lay ministry leader in our area could remain in the local area while they receive excellent quality Christian ministry and leadership training at no cost? ACMin has set a goal of raising a $1M scholarship endowment over the next three years. Will you prayerfully consider:
-making a one-time gift to the Student Scholarship Fund;
-setting up a monthly recurring gift to the Student Scholarship Fund; or
-pledging an annual gift to the Scholarship Fund for three years?

2019 Groundbreaking Campaign
We are prayerfully making plans to break ground on our campus property in 2019, beginning with our first building that will house classrooms, staff office space, our library and Prayer Ministry rooms.  Subsequently, we will add a prayer garden, farm, and retreat center, all for ministry use! Your groundbreaking gifts allow us to continue to build towards the full vision that God has provided for our hands-on ministry training programs.
