Abyssinian Institute for Christian Education

The Abyssinian Institute for Christian Education (AICE) offers courses that speak to the complexities of contemporary life and promote a life-long process of strengthening Christian faith. The Institute’s mission is threefold: to support the walk of faith by encouraging a quest for understanding; extend a relevant teaching ministry to Abyssinian members and the community-at-large; and seriously engage the relationship between faith and social witness.
