ACU Spotlight

“I chose ACU because I loved how the students and faculty felt like a family. The relationships that everyone had with each other and the faculty and staff were an awesome community that I wanted to be a part of.”

Emily Hobrock


At ACU I studied and became friends with students from throughout the United States and from around the world. I will take the spiritual knowledge, education and relationships with faculty and students into everything I do for God’s Kingdom.

Darius Gasatura

alumnus, seminary student

The ACU Music Department has allowed me the freedom to express, grow, and challenge myself in worship. I chose this program over others because of its intimate environment that is entirely fixed on Jesus, and the people involved in it. Our program is the perfect size for you to gain experience in your craft and build deep relationships with faculty. With leaders who are seeking to train musicians who are passionate about the Gospel, and sensitive to the Spirit, one cannot help but to grow.
