The Association of Christian Economists (ACE) has two purposes:
- To encourage Christian scholars to explore and communicate the relationship between their faith and the discipline of economics
- To promote interaction and communication among Christian economists.
The hallmark activities of the association include the publication of the online, peer-reviewed, academic journal Faith & Economics, the organization of annual sessions at the Allied Social Science Associations meetings, and an annual fellowship and business luncheon at the ASSA meetings. In addition, occasional ACE-sponsored conferences provide opportunities to present and discuss scholarly papers, and a chance to meet and fellowship with other members.
