Academy of Christian Training and Service (ACTS)

trains called men and women to fulfill their potential in service to Christ

ACTS Ministry School is nationally recognized by American Baptists as an accepted model of study for persons desiring to be certified as lay ministers. Graduates of the Certified Lay Minister preparation program can be certified by one's local American Baptist church, after being recommended by their church's association.

After certification, you may pastor a church, be an associate, youth, or interim pastor, do supply preaching, and/or generally work in your own church in a more educated and experienced way. Graduates may register with the American Baptist Personnel Services, and this can facilitate the possibility of being called to a church ministry position.

If called as a pastor, you will have the necessary recognition to perform weddings, and with the affirmation of the local church, may dedicate children, baptize, officiate at the Lord's Supper, and conduct funerals.

A certified Lay Minister usually has the opportunity to do whatever an ordained person can do and should be well-equipped to conduct quality ministry in the name of Christ.

"Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish
abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine,
to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever."
Ephesians 3:21-22
