ACC (African Christian College) is located in the small kingdom of Swaziland (which is surrounded by South Africa and Mozambique). ACC was established as Manzini Bible School in 1967 to educate preachers from all nations in Southern Africa. It became African Christian College in 2007. Graduates from this school are preaching and teaching in 17 nations of Africa today. Hundreds of churches have been established by these graduates.
ACC today is focused on providing the best leaders for tomorrow’s churches whether they are preachers, business people, counselors, or teachers.
The Bachelor of Theology degree at African Christian College prepares students for excellent service in the Kingdom by educating students in biblical and theological studies with specializations in ministry, leadership, and counseling. The core curriculum includes Bible classes and course studies in Counseling, Ethics, African and World History, and Business.

The Bridge of Topeka, is a not-for-profit organization created to seek shalom in Topeka. Shalom is a Hebrew word meaning wholeness, welfare, peace and prosperity.
Our Mission: The Bridge’s mission is to magnify the glory of God and grow his Church by building bridges with urban families, empowering their children to become the responsible servant leaders of the 21st Century.
Our Vision: The Bridge is a mentoring program for at-risk youth. We will provide a safe place for urban children to belong and develop strong relationships with mature, stable, loving Christian mentors so that through us they, and their families, might come to know, love, and worship Jesus Christ. We began this work in 2008, targeting a small group of students from Meadows Elementary School. We plan to follow these students from elementary school, through middle school and high school, and off to college.
Operation Ecuador began in 1989 as an ambitious mission effort to reach the city of Quito, Ecuador and beyond with the good news of Jesus. Starting with one church-plant, its reach now includes eight churches in Ecuador and one in Bolivia.
Works of Operation Ecuador:
Quito School of Biblical Studies trains young men and women to teach the Gospel. Since 1997, the school has graduated more than 152 students who are serving in a least 15 different countries.
Camp Bellevue in Tabacundo is a year-round Christian Camp that offers local children's programs and evangelistic outreach. It also offers services and facilities to Churches of Christ throughout the nation.
The Hacienda of Hope is a long-term project to help children of Ecuador. The Hacienda is an orphanage and also operates a bilingual school.
Into All the World is the internet program based out of the Quito School of Biblical Studies. Through it, the courses taught at QSBS are available to the entire internet-accessible world. (Courses are in Spanish.)
Medical Campaigns (occurring yearly or more often) give medical attention to poorer rural areas of Ecuador. The Kumanii Christian Center, located up the Kumanii River several hours by boat, now serves as the primary base for these campaigns which bless the local people and new church plants along the river.Website: www.eqeb.org
Southside members have taught hundreds of students from 65 different nations. There have been baptisms in several different countries. By participating in WBS (World Bible School), we are responding to Jesus' command in Matthew 28:18-20:
18Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
WBS is a simple process. People eager to learn about God are made aware of WBS through advertising, word-of-mouth, campaign groups, and other means. They enroll online, by mail, or as a referral from a family member or friend. Students are assigned to volunteer teachers who grade their web-based lessons and correspond with them.
