Many poor communities lack gospel preaching churches and many churches in poor communities lack access to affordable and relatable training. The Church in Hard Places Collaborative is a global initiative of Acts 29 to see churches planted in the world’s poorest communities.
We define hard places as areas that are socially and economically disadvantaged. The Church in Hard Places collaborative crosses languages, regions and ethnicities as we seek to engage the global poor with the gospel.

From time to time our directors lead regional workshops on ‘Building Healthy Churches in Hard Places‘. These one-day events highlight core principles for building healthy gospel churches among the poor. To host a workshop in your church please email [email protected]
We will select 10 ministry leaders who are doing ministry in poor communities across the world to pursue this 2-year training course. Our goal is for each Apprentice to be equipped to build healthy churches in poor communities.
Each apprentice will be trained in the areas of biblical studies, theology, preaching and church planting. The apprentice will receive a monthly reading and writing assignment and will meet with a field mentor. The group will meet together to discuss the assignments via a video conference call. Each year every apprentice will be invited to participate in an annual one week intensive training course either in the UK or the USA. At the completion of the apprenticeship the successful apprentice will be invited to be assessed as a candidate to join the Acts 29 Network in their location.
