Todd Glassman

Men's Ministry Director

Todd is a happily married husband, father of four, and grandfather of one. He's known the Lord for 20 years and enjoys meeting new people and sharing the Gospel. The Men's Ministry of ACC is meant to bring men together to talk about and live out the Lord's desires as a group, not just individually. We discuss the current issues we're dealing with in light of God's Word as well as learn to minister together to help widows and the fatherless.

R. U. Called?

Youth Director

One key that we think is important to fulfilling God's vision for our church is to have a thriving youth ministry. While we've got a group of us working together to minister to the youth, we are currently looking for the individual or couple that God is calling to oversee this ministry. Could it be you? Let's talk, and see where God is leading.
