Review for African Christian College, Albuquerque, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

A great need is for an endowment fund that will fund future growth and provide a financial basis for expanding the paid faculty.
