The ACOS was the new design of study provided by the Central Conference (National) Division of Ordained Ministry for pastors as mandated by the 2012 General Conference of the United Methodist Church. It aims to equipped pastors more knowledge and skills to be more effective in their ministry in the local churches. This would serve as part of the credentials specially by the local pastors seeking full membership and as full pledge ordained pastors.

It is also a time of fellowship with one another as they see each other again as pastors of the annual conference.
