Student Stories

Jason Medis

“My time at AC really helped me see and understand the Word through a lens I had never seen before, helped me to become a better communicator practically, but most importantly, it has deepened my love for God personally.”

Cathie Fabian

“Far from information only, AC's leadership course was delivered with wisdom and compassion from proven and trustworthy leaders and punctuated often with heart-hitting facts. The highest objective was to shore up authentic relationship in Christ, so that the local Church would be strengthened and therefore the Kingdom of God advanced.”
