The Academy of Counseling, Ministry, and Education
Believing each student is uniquely made (Psalms 139:14) and given specific gifts (Romans 12:6) for the building up of Christ's body, this Academy seeks first to help each student discover those gifts. At that point the student can begin to seek God for a career where those gifts can bring benefit to others as well as financial reward and life satisfaction.
