Academics

AGBC seek to provide more than just theological or ministerial knowledge. Our curriculum and classroom interaction takes into account the person and work of the Holy Spirit in the life of an individual. We stimulate knowledge in class while allowing the Spirit to minister to the individual as well. This distinctive Pentecostal emphasis is what makes AGBC unique. There is a very good blend of theory and practice. We consider the classroom as a place of stimulating knowledge, and yet much of our training includes the modeling of servant leadership outside the classroom.
