The ACC Care Ministry houses three unique areas of ministry to care for those experiencing the trials and struggles of life:

  • ACC Care Ministry
  • ACC Prayer Ministry
  • Stephen Ministry

ACC Care Ministry

ACC Care Ministry exists to minister God’s grace to people who are homebound, in the hospital, and more. If you are interested in being part of this ministry, please contact John Schaaf at [email protected].

ACC Prayer Ministry

At ACC we believe in a God who still does miracles today!
For this reason, as a church we want prayer to be at the center of all we do because we want God to be at the center of all we do. Every Sunday you’ll find that our teams begin praying even before our Sunday services begin and continue during our services. Throughout the week we pray for one another and beyond in our LifeGroups. And we periodically have Growth Courses specifically on prayer.

In addition to all of this, we would love to invite you to be a part of our Prayer Ministry on Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm. While prayer begins at 6:30, sometimes prayer goes late into the evening, and people are free to come and go.

Whether your are part of ACC or not, we believe You Belong at ACC. With this in mind, consider this your invitation to pray with us or come for prayer. We want to meet you right where you are.

Please go to to submit any prayer requests or praises.

Stephen Ministry

The Stephen Ministry at ACC seeks to provide one-to-one Christ-centered care to people in the congregation and the community experiencing life difficulties. 

1) How does Stephen Ministry work?

A trained Stephen Minister is matched with a person experiencing a life crisis. The Stephen Minister then meets with the Care Receiver to listen, care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support. Their Stephen Minister will walk with them and provide confidential Christian care during tough times. 

2) Who are Stephen Ministers? 

Stephen Ministers are congregation members who have trained for 50 hours to offer high-quality, one-to-one Christian care to people going through tough times. Stephen Ministers come from all walks of life. Their commonality is a passion for bringing Christ’s love and care to people during a time of need. 

3) Who are the Care Receivers?

Care receivers are people—congregation members and others in the community—who receive care from a Stephen Minister. These are people struggling through a difficult time in life—experiencing grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or other life crises. The caring relationship lasts as long as the person is in need of care. The identity of those receiving care, and anything that is shared, remains confidential.
