ACE is Accepting Applications Now through September 20


North Georgia's Academy of Clergy Excellence, known as ACE Squared, is accepting applications through September 30. An alternate continuing education program for clergy, ACE2 encourages clergy to bond, learn and dream together in order to refresh self, church, and community. 

Each ACEgroup designs and implements their own custom continuing education plan over a two year period. The program challenges participants to dream of new ways of learning together, rather than merely participating in pre-packaged seminars that they could do on their own. 

Last year interest in ACEfar exceeded expectation. When asked why this program generated such enthusiasm, participants said it offered just what they were looking for: connection, lifelong learning, adventure, renewal, and a desire for God to do a new thing in me and my church.   

Interested in applying? There are three steps.

Before you apply, (Step 1) identify a committed group of 6-8 North Georgia UMC clergy. Then, (Step 2) decide on a study focus. After that, (Step 3) complete the 3-part application.
