ACC is devoted and dedicated to community. From weekly community meals to chapels and ministry opportunities offered by our staff and your fellow students, your studies here will include you in a community of learning where we encourage each other to grow, ask questions, serve and seek Truth, both in our studies and ministry and in our own individual lives. Below are a few of our community events that are available, and many of our staff members are involved in local and international ministries including elementary and secondary schools, churches and church planting and more, which are available for you to volunteer to be a part of.
In addition to what has been mentioned, Aletheia’s staff and student government would like to support you in your own community and ministry endeavors. We hope you’ll join us in enriching life together!
