Acts 29 Australia & New Zealand began with a focus on laying a strong foundation in our church plants, and has matured into a network of healthy church-planting churches.
By God’s grace, now over 60% of our network is either a church-planting church or a recent church plant. Each year we have the joy of walking with potential church planters through their assessment process and welcoming them into the Acts 29 family, along with existing churches who desire to mature toward sending out healthy church plants themselves.
We sense a responsibility for not only facilitating church planting in our backyard, but also among the many billions of people around south-east Asia who don’t yet know Jesus. Presently, we are in process of helping birth Acts 29 Japan, as we seek to leverage our resources and relationships to equip men and women for mission in that country — the second most unreached people group in the world.
Our hope is to see Australia, New Zealand, and the entire Asia-Pacific region saturated with Christ-exalting, church-planting churches.
