Promised Land 2020

We thank God for each one of you, for your prayers and partnership as His plans for the Athens College of Ministry unfold.  What a blessing it has been to witness Christ-centered life transformation in our students and in those to whom they have ministered. As we press ahead to grow God’s work through the college, our prayer is to break ground on our campus property in 2020. We’d like to invite you to read all about the  2020 Promised Land Campaign, and consider how YOU can be part of God’s answer to that prayer!

“You are to help them until the Lord gives them rest, as he has done for you, and until they too have taken possession of the land the Lord your God is giving them.” –Joshua 1:15a

An incredible beginning and a powerful future!

You are invited to hear the story of how ACMin was founded in the audio testimony below.  Then feast on our exciting vision for building a special place where our students learn to serve others by ministering to them in Christ!

Support the ACMin Scholarship Fund  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?

At the Athens College of Ministry, we have determined to not build an institution on the foundation of student loan debt. We have trusted God to provide for the needs to fund the institution’s operations as we grow. By keeping our students out of student loan debt, they are free to step out and serve after graduation however they are called!

The majority of our students require financial assistance in order to enroll in ACMin. Many of our students struggle to maintain enrollment while working full time to cover their living expenses while attending college. By supporting the ACMin Student Scholarship Fund, you are sowing into future Christian leaders who will multiply your gift by sowing into the hearts and lives of countless others as they utilize the skills, faith, and biblical practices acquired through their programs.

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?
