My cohort experience changed my pastoral leadership and helped my church see more people come to Christ and become disciples. I think this Institute could ultimately help thousands of other African American churches like my own.”
Keith Gordon, Senior Pastor Love of Christ Baptist Church – Chicago, IL
Evangelism is the most prominent sign in most churches. Go and Make disciples is our mission cry and yet somehow we miss and skip over it in reality to our outcomes. The Pastor’s Cohort has been our wake-up call to remembrance and execution, we are being whipped into shape, AMEn for this powerful course correction!”
Ron Crawford, Pastor New Vision Church — Bowie, MD
AACEI has been an insightful, impactful, and integral reminder of the mandate from God to reach the lost/unchurched, restore the brokenhearted, reproduce the heart and mind of Jesus into others and release laborers to the ends of the earth. Our church, our leaders, and even our members are well on their way to better engage the culture today for Jesus Christ!”
