How AACF is responding to COVID-19

Updated March 19, 2020

With a rapidly developing situation, AACF is still committed to its mission and vision.

AACF is still committed to community. As universities move to online instruction and close their campuses, AACF will also move online. Technology allows us to create digital gathering spaces. And scripture has modeled for us the love of God for all peoples.

AACF is still committed to leadership development. At the writing of this letter (March 19), we will still be holding our annual Leadership Training Conference (LTC). And we will be adding online training modules, regional seminars, and establishing leadership support groups.

AACF is still committed to the Great Commission. We are closely monitoring COVID-19 domestically and internationally. We are following the guidance of the CDC, State Department, WHO, and the governments of our destination country. At the writing of this letter (March 19), we are still planning to send our established teams to Japan and Hawaii. But we are no longer receiving any new applications for summer short term missions for 2020.

We are committed to our mission and vision; and we hold our plans loosely as we seek God’s guidance for the future. As the situation continues to develop, we will adapt our ministry.

We ask that you continue to support the ministry of AACF. Continue to pray for AACF: that its leadership will make wise, compassionate, and courageous decisions. Also, that isolated students will be rooted in Christ and discover community. Continue to support AACF campus ministers: they will be on the frontlines of a collegiate ministry. Students will need the voice and presence of a mentor, counselor, and disciple of Jesus. Without your support and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, none of this would be possible. Thank you for your generosity and faithfulness.
