ACOM's COVID-19 Response

Dear ACOM students, alumni, and friends.

ACOM continues to be committed to equipping students and leaders to thrive, as lifelong learners, in ministry contexts that may not exist today.

ACOM's online/distance model of ministry training has been developed over the past 20+ years and ideally equips us to respond to these changing times to ensure that ministry training not only continues but thrives.

ACOM’s strength has always been its commitment to partnering with local churches and like-minded organisations to provide students engaging in ministry formation an environment where they are able to test drive what they are learning within the communities of enquiry in which they are situated. This is where we believe the future of ministry training lies.

Despite recent disruptions our students continue their studies largely without interruption with our Student Engagement Managers, Academic and Ministry Services teams providing ongoing support and encouragement.

In 2021 we have moved to delivering a combination of ‘in-person’ & online facilitations with students gathering in safe ways where possible.

We ask that you continue to pray for our students & the churches they represent, our communities and our world at this time.

On behalf of the ACOM team,

Neale Meredith
Interim Principal and Dean of Students
