2014 ACM Fall Newsletter
Monday, July 27, 2015

This year we celebrate 10 years of Annapolis Pan-Orthodox College Ministry (ACM).  We think of the hundreds of students and midshipmen who have been exposed to Orthodox Christianity and the fullness of the life in Christ along with the fourscore who have embraced Christ and His holy Church over these past 10 years.  We give thanks to God for your faithful participation in this ministry, which has made this ministry possible.  Some of you have been with us since our founding in 2004 and some of you have become participants in the ministry more recently.  All of you have been used by God to enable this outreach to continue.

ACM was one of the first full-time discipleship-oriented college ministries in the Orthodox Church.  Sadly, it’s now one of but a few.  Arguably, there’s never been a greater need for faithful Orthodox Christian college ministry than now!  Our youth face a barrage of secular, nihilistic and relativistic peer pressure from our culture and fellow students and need the anchor that formation in the time-less truth of Christ provides. 

ACM has given 10 years worth of students and midshipmen the opportunity to come to Christ and His holy Church, and those already Orthodox to grow in and ‘own’ their faith.  For others, ACM has given them the opportunity to consider the timeless truth of Christ and the Good News of salvation in Him for the first time. 

Now, as we celebrate our 10th year, ACM is facing one of its greatest financial challenges.  While our budget (and my support for my growing family of five) has NOT increased for several years, contributions from our faithful supporters have sadly declined.   We do not take any contributions for granted.  We thank God for you!

Here’s a short synopsis of the last 10 years: Take a look!
