“Pastoring a church can be tough. Pastoring without support can be really tough. It is a blessing to me and our church to be connected to ACN. They have provided resources and encouragement as we endeavor to live out our mission. Our relationship with ACN has been invaluable.”

It's about relationships

There are so many organizations offering 'one size fits all' master courses and products. Every non-profit is different. This very real truth is crucial to understanding how we can help you. We don't have a 'coaching library' full of videos and webinars because ACN takes a personalized approach to each organization we work with.

Resource Library

There are tons of documents waiting for you to download and customize for your organization. Don't see what you're looking for? Let us know and we can help you create it and add it to our library for other ACN Members.

Personal Help

This goes way beyond 'office hours' help. We get to know you and your organization intimately. Our hope isn't to upsell a church growth course, but to work one on one with you and discover what it takes to help your organization be healthy and thrive in your context.

Our Focus and Commitment

We have four avenues through which we help organizations most. These four areas provide the focus we need to help you be the best at what you do. Basically, it lets us be great at what we do so that we can help you be the best at what only YOU can do.


In your ministry, administration is a necessary but not dominant feature.  In fact, it can take valuable time and energy from your core passion and expertise. ACN provides a consultative approach to helping your organization excel in efficiency. Working with a network of industry leading solution providers, we get to know you and your ministry and tailor the most relevant and effective suite of capabilities that will save you both time and money.

That is why we provide specific environments for leaders to gather, whether virtually or in person, and tackle challenges, share best practices, and support each other. Ranging from regional to local, our networking events are low pressure and high value.

Collaboration is the name of the game in ministry.  That is why we design new avenues of collaboration that have a positive impact on your ministry objectives.

“We are a small church with limited resources and we were struggling to find the right kind of help to meet the needs of our growing church. Then we met ACN. With their hands-on personal approach, they actively sought to meet our specific needs and walked us through the whole process. We were completely satisfied and would highly recommend ACN to anyone.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Join ACN?

ACN is for non-profit leaders that want to maximize their mission and value a personal, one-on-one approach. It's a perfect tool for pastors and ministry leaders that want to build healthy, vibrant organizations.

How is ACN Different?

At ACN we value a personalized approach to every organization we work with. Rather than just selling you products and canned 'solutions' we work with you to create a tailored plan made just for your organization. 

How much does ACN cost?

We have different tiers based on a ministry's operating budget. You can find them here. Optionally, we have ministries that are sponsored by another individual or organization. You can find that info on our Sponsor page. 

Is an ACN membership time consuming?

Busy leaders will love the simplicity and flexibility of working with ACN. We work with you at every step of the process, from discovery to implementation of the plan we develop with you. You'll see results no matter how much time you're able to commit.

Is there a contract? Can I cancel?

There is no contract and you can cancel at any time. We are positive that you will find your membership valuable, but if you need to cancel there are no hoops to jump through. 

Can I become an ACN Partner?

Well, Yes & No. We actively look for new resource partners, but we are picky about who we partner with so that we can offer the best value to our members. If you are interested in a partnership send us a note and we will get back with you to discuss your awesomeness.

Not ready to jump in? No problem.

Take some time to think about joining the Association of Christian Nonprofits. We completely understand. The ACN family still wants to help your organization thrive in the mean time.
