Ambassador College of Christian Ministry (ACCM) provides practical, quality online training in Christian ministry through both credit and audit programs.
ACCM's Diploma in Christian Ministry program equips men and women for more effective and informed service in the work of the gospel.
ACCM also welcomes non-credit students who wish to undertake study of selected classes for personal interest and development without the need to undertake assessment.
Grace Communion Seminary (GCS) equips men and women for pastoral ministry through graduate-level distance-education programs in biblical, theological, ministerial and pastoral studies informed by Incarnational Trinitarian faith. Our name describes who we are:
Grace is the essence of our lives. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ reveals God to us, grants us life in him, leads us in forgiving and being forgiven, and gives us salvation. Our Triune God and his grace and love revealed through Jesus Christ is the center of our theology.
Communion defines the relationship we have with God, Jesus, and one another. The communion of the Holy Spirit binds us with Jesus who is the head of the Church, enlivens God's love in our hearts, and unites us as followers of Jesus Christ. We live in inseparable unity in Christ in the perpetual effects of his incarnation, crucifixion, resurrection, ascension and sending of the Spirit at Pentecost.
Seminary describes the scope of our educational goal. GCS is committed to enabling pastoral ministry in the universal church that effectively shares the love of the Father with the world. We teach from a perspective of Trinitarian incarnational theology.
