I have been involved with African Christian College for 20+ years and have personally witnessed its transformation from a small school that trained ministers in Africa to a degree-granting institution training both men and women in multiple African nations to become active Christian leaders in their home communities. A significant source of support for the school comes from a high quality macadamia orchard planted and farmed on the school property.

I would encourage anyone who believes in the importance Christian leaders in Africa nations and homes to join us in this effort.

In 1997 I bought a few macadamia plants in the name of Nigerian Christian Bible College (where I was serving at the time) to add to the orchard at ACC. Three years later, I visited the campus for the first time and was highly impressed. After becoming a board member, I taught in Swaziland a semester in 2007. The school has upgraded considerably since I was there and is moving more toward sustainability with its bountiful macadamia harvests each year.

But the real story is the change the school makes in the lives of its students. Whole families move to the campus when accepted, and husbands and wives learn together and grow together. Ample opportunities for service are provided for students to help those in need living near the school. The faculty and staff are totally committed to giving students what they will need to be productive members of their communities after they graduate.

As one who knows ACC from the bottom up, I affirm that it is a great nonprofit, carrying out its mission with excellence!

I have been an active supporter of Afircan Christian College (ACC) for over 15 years and have had the pleasure of visiting there twice.

I was drawn to its mission to equip students for excellent service in God's Kingdom and the great people that are part of the faculty, staff and student body. When I see the real difference being made by and leadership roles being taken by our alumni throughout southern Africa I am proud to be able to be associated with ACC.

I am truly excited that year after year things just keep getting better.

I have been involved with the school for twenty years. The growth in the school has been remarkable.not so much growth in numbers but growth in delivering the instruction that is most needed in Africa. Teaching the people to be self supporting and helping each other and not relying on outside sources. Truly "Africans helping Africans"

I've been on the oversight committee and a Board member for the past 15 years. African Christian College as it is known today, and formerly Manzini Bible School, has endured challenges that if God had not been overseeing this work, the school would almost certainly not exist. My association with this work has not only been satisfying, but has tremendously increased my faith. My first hand experience with observing how God has sustained and nurtured this school is my personal witness of God at work in this World today! Joe Page, Albuquerque, NM

My husband and I have been volunteering at African Christian College for 6 years and have spent as much as 9 months a year on the campus in Swaziland. We are intimately acquainted with how the donor’s money is spent and we testify that none is wasted. This college teaches the students the importance of personal and business integrity and models that for them. Our students return to their homes prepared to support their families with their own hands and to be ethical community leaders.

My wife and i have had the priviledge to serve at African Christian College for more than 10 years. They have been the most rewarding years in our lives. The students at ACC come from many southern and eastern African countries often selling everything they have and sometimes travelling weeks just to gain the opportunity to study and gain a degree at ACC. The spiritual strength and desire to serve the Lord displayed by these young people is awesome.

The college currently offers Theology degrees with majors in Ministry, Leadership and Counseling. Throughout Africa there is consesus that what every country needs is honest, caring leaders. African Christian College is preparing these type of graduates and sending them back to their home countries where they are becoming leaders in their churches, communities and countries.

Please go to www.africanchristiancollege.org where you can learn more about the college and find ways you can get involved and be part of this outstanding kingdom work.

African Christian College is an institution of higher education dedicated to spreading God's word throughout southern Africa. Our students are all given full ride scholarships and work on campus in our gardens, farm and macadamia orchard to earn spending money. Everyone attending is provided with a healthy diet at our central cafeteria. In addition to their formal education they are given training in skills such as barbering, farming, orchard management and raising of small livestock to help them make a living when they return home.

It is a great mission effort with a long history of success. Please join us by contributing today. You can get current updates about what is happening on campus by going to http://www.africanchristiancollege.org

My name is Luke Mswane. I am currently one of the Board Members. I have known The African Christian College for more than 20 years ( formerly known as the Manzini Bible School). The College has had positive impact on many people's lives directly and indirectly through the many number of students who have been trained on Theology by the Institution. Today the Institution continues to reach out to the people of the Southern African region, East Africa, etc to equip them with leadership skills, theology, counseling. They are definitely making a positive contribution to the lives of many people.

I first came to African Christian College in January, 2012 to teach in the areas of theology and counseling. I can easily say this has been some of my life's most rewarding work. By working with students from 9 different African countries I can help make a difference all over southern Africa. It has been a thrill to see graduates from African Christian College returning home and immediately beginning to do things that are having a great impact for the Kingdom of God. That is why I spend nine months a year here on the campus.

Here at ACC I have the privilege of working with some great people. The faculty and staff are dedicated Christians. In addition, I have met and worked with people who come here to teach college classes for either 2 weeks or nine weeks at a time. Others have come for special projects such as building our new library. Some of the best professors from Abilene Christian University, Oklahoma Christianity University and Harding School of Theology have been here to teach classes.

It has also been a joy to see people who are not able to come teach, but who give their time and money to help make things possible that are facilitating our growth. Right now housing for married students is being built thanks to a generous donor of money and others who are giving their time to supervise the construction. At the start of this year we were able to give each of our students a laptop computer. Now we are installing a campus wide Wi-Fi system to enable them to study and do research on the internet. The computers and internet access have been made possible by people who love the Lord and let their money to show it.

My husband and I have been volunteers at African Christian College for 10 years. We believe in the mission of training students from all over central and southern Africa to return to their countries with the education and skills needed to impact their own culture and their own communities. No one else could go in the midst of culture and community and jump the hurdles it would take to reach people for Christ, to reach people where they are hurting, to lead communities to solutions of their problems.ACC tries to do that.
