Atlanta Community Ministries
Atlanta Community Ministries (ACM) is a volunteer-oriented, interdenominational ministry that seeks to meet both human needs and effect significant spiritual change in our community. Their ministries are built around volunteers' interests, gifts, and abilities; and they offer numerous pathways for Atlanta Churches and Christians to become more externally focused and to "get out of their seats and into the streets", in ways which change the lives of both the servers and those served. Each year, ACM helps mobilize over 2000 volunteers, touching 25,000 individuals in the metro area.
