Empowering the Church:
The ministry runs several church empowerment programs.

A special effort is made to spiritually empower women as they are most marginalized in many societies. Ladies retreats and conferences are hosted by the ministry in partnership with friends and ministries that care that the church is grounded in the word and is encouraged to reach the world. Under this efforts seminary scholarships are solicited to send others for seminary of Bible school training.
- Agape School of Theology
In partnership with Agape Baptist Church www.agapebaptistntinda.org the ministry has initiated a school for theological formation. The first target is men and women who hold positions in the church and are teachers of the word but have not been exposed to thinking theologically. This are men and women who will never be able to go to seminary but desire to be equipped to be better teachers and servants. The school also targets pastors and church leaders who want to be equipped in ministry. The school’s other target any Christian who wants to expand their knowledge of the Bible and strengthen their commitment to the disciplines of a Christian life.

- Church Construction program
A house of worship is a necessity for every community. Most often a church building is the center and a point of reference in many communities. A house of worship also speaks volumes about the faith of a given community and therefore a church building tells that this community honors Christ not ancestors. ACEM is committed to assist, especially rural churches, to have decent places to worship God.
