Chapel

Our tradition of fellowship, worship and learning—including daily all-campus chapels and breakout small group and departmental chapels—brings us together, reminding us that our faith is a shared experience and communal celebration. Together, across ACU, we pursue Christ’s purpose for us in the world.

Community Service and Ministry

Here in our community and out in the broader world, we passionately invest in our neighbors and commit to ministry and service initiatives that illustrate the love and compassion of our Creator.

Leadership Camps

Each summer, ACU offers leadership camps for 4th- to 10th-grade students—and our students get involved! As a camp volunteer, you’ll serve as a model of Christ-first living as you mentor students, facilitate spiritual growth and guide the next generation of leaders.
