Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The College of Athens equips those who will teach, reach, lead, and minister to others in Christ because together we're on a relentless pursuit to transform the world in Jesus' name!

We accomplish our objective through impactful, biblically-based, hands-on programs to prepare today's and tomorrow's leaders for marketplace or church ministry. Our institution offers undergraduate, graduate, and non-degree programs.

Led by a faith-filled Board of Trustees, the faculty and staff who lead the College of Athens are highly credentialed with tremendous frontline ministry and education leadership experience.

Founded in 2009, the College of Athens opened its doors in August 2012 under religious exemption in the State of Georgia. In 2015 we received full authorization from the Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary Education. In 2017 we received accreditation candidacy status from the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges & Schools.

In 2017, our college purchased a 114-acre parcel of land where we can establish our permanent campus and develop the hands-on ministry centers that are vital to our unique, hands-on way of training leaders.

In 2017, the institution entered into accreditation candidacy with the Transnational Association of Colleges & Schools. In 2020, full accreditation status was achieved. In 2021, the institution was fully authorized for offering Distance Education and added a Master of Divinity (MDiv) program.

Our students, conference attendees, and Prayer Ministry recipients largely testify that their experiences here at the College of Athens are "life-changing." We thank GOD for all that He does in and through our college and for this opportunity to make a difference.
