A valuable resource for ministry equipping is Ambassador College of Christian Ministry (ACCM). This online program offers classes in biblical studies and Christian ministry both for credit toward a diploma or non-credit (by audit) – in a flexible format and at a reasonable cost.
Many GCI senior pastors in the US take ACCM classes to fulfill GCI’s continuing education requirement for senior pastors and pastoral teams. Other pastors (elders), ministry leaders and workers find ACCM’s classes to be very helpful to their ministries in Christ’s service.
Following are comments about ACCM from Grant Forsyth who serves as a GCI elder in Michigan.
Being a newly ordained elder, the ACCM program has been most valuable to me. I have really enjoyed the curriculum and the flexibility for people like me. Not only have I learned on a scale that is difficult to quantify, but I have been able to share what I am learning with the congregation and the congregation is enjoying it too.
Because of my job situation, I have pockets of time available to do class work, usually several days and then sometimes weeks before I can get back to it. The flexibility offered by ACCM helps me a great deal.
I really enjoy this resource and the work that has gone into it. It’s a great service to our denomination and it is much appreciated!
