Orlando, USA, 2017 Intensives

ACCM is offering Spiritual Formation and Pastoral Care Intensives, each delivered over two days on July 30th and 31st, just before the International Conference in Orlando. Students will need to choose one of these courses.

ACCM operates in 34 countries, and has been running Intensives attached to conferences for more than a decade. It offers a denominationally recognized Diploma in Christian Ministry. Completion of one of these courses for credit fulfils requirements for pastoral continuing education in 2017.

Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to share learning together in a supportive community, building relationships and connections with brothers and sisters from around the world, as we explore the deep things of God in communion. While the courses are ideal for those without formal ministry or theological training at Bachelor’s level, they are available for anyone who wishes to learn more and be better equipped for ministry.

The classes are taught in an interactive format, making the content accessible and understandable, and provide enjoyable learning experiences. You will find the course material interesting, practical, and immediately useable in your congregational setting.

We look forward to seeing you there.

The Intensives are for members, pastors, bi-vocational pastors, Next Generation leaders, ministry leaders, everyone involved in ministry; indeed, they are for every Christian who wants to deepen and enrich their walk with Jesus, and be better equipped for ministry service. Starting with Christ-centered, Trinitarian foundations, each course explores the implications and practical applications for life and ministry.

What is the cost?
