You are registering for the Grace Community Church Ministerial Studies course “The Book of Acts.”

A study of the book of Acts will help you advance your knowledge and understanding of the Bible through an in-depth study of the scriptures and their practical application to your life. If you are seeking to grow spiritually and/or considering a role in ministry, this course is designed specifically for you.

This course and other future courses are aimed at building your faith through:

(1) Education: A classroom component to grow your faith and deepen your relationship with God through His Word and guidance of the Holy Spirit.

(2) Mentoring: Access to individual mentorship to help you discern God’s calling.

(3) Service: A service-learning requirement through the ministry opportunities (volunteer internships) at Grace.

If you register before April 30, 2023, the early bird registration cost is $75. The full cost for the course will be $100. New students will pay an additional $30 for their one-time enrollment in the Bible School.

New students will need to complete an enrollment application for the Bible School on or before May 15, 2023. You will receive an email with the application form.

The first day of class is Thursday, June 1, 2023, and the last day is July 27, 2023. Class times are from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. We plan to meet each week for 2 hours in-person at the Grace Community Church at Ballston Quarter, 4238 Wilson Blvd, 2nd Floor, Arlington, VA 22203.

Each student will receive an Independent Study Textbook (“workbook”). Please note that the registration fee is non-refundable. The Ministerial Studies at Grace courses are not-for-credit and non-transferable. There are no pre-requisites, tests, or exams.

Each student is committing to:

(1) attend all 9 class sessions. It is expected the student will come prepared for a robust discussion of the Bible passages being studied. Time spent in self-study, prior to each lesson, should average about 45 minutes a day, since the summer course is somewhat condensed.

(2) complete the service-learning requirement at Grace. Each student must participate as a volunteer/intern for at least 8 of the 9 weeks of this course. The service-learning requirement should be completed by the 9th week. For ministry opportunities at Grace, visit

(3) write a one-page paper about what you learned from your above "ministry" experience.

Vicky and I are praying for God to lead you in this life-transforming decision!
