Diploma in Christian Ministry Program

Ambassador College of Christian Ministry (ACCM) provides ministry and pastoral educational programs for Grace Communion International. Our program is offered to help equip and develop the ministry of members, ministry leaders and pastors.

The Diploma in Christian Ministry is open to anyone who wishes to apply for registration. It is comprised of ten specified courses in biblical studies and Christian leadership. The ten required courses in the Diploma program are accessed through admin.ambascol.org and learn.ambascol.org are administered by ACCM Australia.

The Diploma is offered on a flexible learning platform, enabling enrollment at any time and a timeframe of six months to finish a course, and is open to any interested student. The program is designed to equip men and women for more effective and informed service in the work of the gospel.

The Diploma includes nine courses, delivered online, plus a final Ministry Practicum or Research project. Students may opt to take just six of these courses, called the “core courses” as listed below, to obtain a certificate instead of the full diploma. While the courses are listed in a generally recommended order, this is not required, and the courses may be taken in any order best suited to your individual needs.
