I am thankful, at this stage in my life, to pursue a degree in Christian Ministries with ACU. I am now in my second career and am excited to be able to complete a degree while working full time. Having the flexibility to attend classes at the Peoria campus and to attend classes online is exactly what I need. A pressing career and a life full of church and community commitments require me to manage my calendar in a way that a traditional school just didn’t work. I love having the flexibility to “learn on my own schedule.” Thank you ACU for meeting me where I am.
