Our roots go back to Ambassador College, a liberal-arts Christian school in California. Over the years, Ambassador College operated campuses in California, Texas, and England. All those campuses are closed and our work is now done online. This enables us to serve students without removing them from their current areas of ministry.
In 2003, Ambassador College began offering courses online in biblical studies, theology, and Christian ministry, with an undergraduate program and a graduate program. In 2005, the undergraduate and graduate programs were separated.
- The undergraduate program uses the name Ambassador College of Christian Ministry. It is administered by the GCI affiliate in Australia at www.ambascol.org. It is not accredited.
- The graduate program is doing business as Grace Communion Seminary, administered from Charlotte, NC. It is accredited.
- There is no formal connection between ACCM and Grace Communion Seminary; they have different boards and officers.
Grace Communion Seminary limits its educational programs to graduate-level distance-education courses in Bible, theology, church history, and ministry. All programs are administered online, and are open to academically qualified people who want to expand their education and ministry in the evangelical tradition.
