The annual summit which rotates around different cities in the Division is for ACF student-leaders, campus chaplains and pastors, conference and union youth and young adult ministries directors, and any leaders desiring to learn about ministry with and for college students on public campuses. Primary goals include networking and leader-training not available at union or conference leadership conventions.
John Leis, Bloomington Church pastor and Indiana Conference ACF director says the upcoming event based on the theme “Christ on Campus” from Luke 17:20-21 will be worthwhile. “There are many training sessions to choose from such as how to share the gospel, starting an ACF chapter, how to build your community, ministry ideas for public campus outreach,” he says. “Make no mistake, students will benefit greatly from the conference since they play a crucial role on non-Adventist campuses where over 75 percent of our youth are in attendance today.”
Organizers have extended the registration deadline to July 15. Thanks to generous NAD support, ACF Institute students pay $25 for dorm lodging, meals and resources. For more information, visit https://acflink.org/2022-acf-institute/
The ACF virtual experience will include live social media devotional, access to Zoom workshop links, and live stream feed of the worship programming through the website with interactive chat. Virtual only has two tracks to choose from each day, depending on if you are a student or a campus minister. In-person has choice of four simultaneous tracks.
In conjunction with ACF Institute, a Public Campus Ministers (PCM) Conference will coincide with ACF Institute the same week. The PCM Conference is a gathering of chaplains Public Campus Minister coordinators for the purpose of networking and leader training.
