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 ASAP! We’d like to invite you to read all about our Promised Land Campaign and prayerfully consider how YOU can be part of God’s answer to our significant growth!
“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!
Audio Testimony – Founding the Athens College of Ministry
Praying for Benefactors
Would you join us in our prayers for the benefactors needed to establish the ACMin footprint on our Promised Land? We lift up Psalm 90:17, asking God to “establish the work of our hands for us!” As God brings generous givers excited to co-labor with us in this mighty endeavor, we will surely see His great goodness prevail!
Phase 1: First Building: $950K
