ACTS seeks to encourage and foster life-long habits of continuing learning and education. This is very important for lay persons as well as professional church leaders. It is becoming increasingly important that Christians be able to express their faith in ways that are easily and clearly understood. Those taking a course for self-enrichment or continuing education will be better prepared to serve within their congregation in a more educated way.
Those who are already pastoring local churches may take courses to earn Continuing Education Units. Upon completion of the course, verification is mailed to the Regional Executive Pastor. ABCOPAD will then issue a certificate stating that the CEU’s have been earned. The normal course fee and administrative fee(s) will be charged.
Please note that the Institute is recognized nationally by the American Baptist Churches as an approved model for study, however, the ACTS is not otherwise academically accredited.
