Student Life at ACU Online

At ACU, we believe the work we do matters. It matters to the world. It matters to God. God longs for the world to be a place of human flourishing – a place of wholeness, peace, joy, rest, and hope. Whether you are a teacher, therapist, business person, non-profit leader, healthcare professional or find your work in another profession, your work is not disconnected from the life of God, but the very place that God longs for you, your colleagues, your clients, and your community to experience human flourishing.
