CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP AND MINISTRY

- Second year program -

Jesus said, "The harvest is great, but the workers are few." (Matthew 9:37, NLT). Around us is a great harvest of lost and hurting people who need the life-changing hope of Jesus. Completing the ACLM will equip you to become a worker in Jesus' mission field! 


Earning this degree doesn't necessarily mean you will be destined for pastoral ministry. This program will empower you to discover and develop your unique role in the global Church, whatever it might be, so that the Body of Christ can fulfill the mission Jesus left for us to complete.
