There's no campus church at ABC. In keeping with the College's purpose to edify the local church, students attend local churches. With dozens of churches in the surrounding area of southern West Virginia, students have great opportunity to serve as nursery workers, Sunday school teachers, youth leaders, and more.
These local churches also provide many of the students opportunities to fulfill their Christian Service assignments, while others participate in some of the campus ministries.View Ministry Opportunities

Weekly devotions are held in the men’s and women’s residence halls. R.A.s, upperclassmen, and occasional guest speakers bring a biblical challenge in a casual setting.
Each year, staff and faculty are matched with students as Prayer Partners, with the goal of exchanging prayer requests and praying for each other regularly.
Missions Conference in the fall and the Pinter Lecture Series and Daniel L. and Rosalie W. Anderson Servant Leadership Symposium in the spring provide a break from classes and opportunity to interact with recognized Christian leaders.
