Our hope for this event is that we would remember our “why”.
Specifically, that we would remember why Jesus died and rose from the grave, that we would remember why God has placed us where he has placed us, and that we would remember why we are called to do what we are called to do.
Planting a church is a challenging task. Acts 29 exists to support the local church as it identifies, raises up and sends out new church plants. Our goal for all church plants is that they become healthy churches that go on to plant more churches. This process starts with assessment.
The goal of Acts 29 US Southeast Coaching is to provide advice, instruction and training for church planters, pastors, and teams in the Acts 29 US Southeast Network.
Acts 29 US Southeast Training offers cohorts based around intensives in a set area. We currently have training opportunities for men exploring the call to plant (Church Planter Development School - CPDS) as well as men who have gone through the Assessment Process (Church Planter Cohort - CPC).
The goal of Acts 29 US Southeast is to grow to 200 church-planting churches by 2020. To do this, we want to provide structure in order to create a culture where churches can plant churches. We are one of 11 Networks that make up the diverse, global family of Acts 29.
The US Southeast Network is built on 4 program initiatives: Assessment, Coaching, Training, & Support.
The nine states that make up our Network are as follows:
Once known as the “Bible Belt,” the Southeast is now more aptly described as “Christ haunted” as the number of those who are unchurched or dechurched continues to rise.
Once known primarily as rural, over 92% of the metropolitan areas of the Southeast are growing including three of the fastest growing cities in the US. Some projections suggest that by 2050 over 81.7 million people who do not know Jesus will live in the Southeast US. With this cultural shift comes tremendous opportunity for mission to both the dechurched and the unchurched.
To reach this Christ haunted, culturally shifting region, we need more healthy, gospel-centered churches planted and replanted. We need churches that both know and demonstrate the gospel in and to their communities. In fact, 1400 churches will need to be planted per year for the next 40 years to reach the increasing population. Acts 29 wants to play an integral part in the movement of God’s Spirit to see this happen by recruiting, assessing and developing church planters and pastors.
If you are looking to plant a church and desire help and support along the way, or if you are an existing church that desires to be more deeply involved in church planting, Acts 29 US Southeast may be for you. As a member of our Network, you would receive training, coaching, support, and a group of like-minded pastors and churches of which to be a part. The process to join our network follows the Acts 29 assessment process of application, interview, assessment, and candidacy. We want you to thrive as a planter and pastor, both at the beginning and throughout your journey.
