Areas of Study

Every Christian brings a unique story, a unique set of personal gifts and abilities and a unique sense of calling. Each has his or her own hopes and goals for living in accordance with that calling – putting those gifts and abilities to use in God’s service and in bringing their story and the story of the gospel together where God has placed them.

That is why ACTS Seminaries offers courses and programs in a variety of areas. Find the area of study that fits your gifts, abilities and calling.
