Acts 29 Australia/New Zealand began with a focus on laying a strong foundation in our church plants, so that they would one day mature into church-planting churches

By God’s grace, that day is now here, and we are already seeing new churches launched as qualified men are raised up and sent out. Currently over half of our churches are now pregnant or have given birth to new churches! We continue to gain momentum and attract more and more church planters (along with existing churches who desire to mature into a multiplying church), into our vibrant and deeply relational Network. We are well positioned to drill deeper and reach wider for many years to come!

Our churches are not satisfied with the status quo. They are eager to expand into regions of Australia and New Zealand where there currently are no Acts 29 churches. Our hope is to see Australia and New Zealand saturated with Christ-exalting, church-planting churches. As we look into the future and beyond our own borders, we also see that our Network is ideally positioned geographically to reach into Southeast Asia, which is our next frontier.
