Our hope for ATC 2019 is that we would release an army of church planters, pastors and leaders filled with faith, hope and courage that comes from Jesus into their contexts to play their part in God’s Mission in the world.
One of the main challenges with fundraising isn’t that there is no funding, it’s that many churches with resources don’t know who to fund and those looking for funding don’t know where to look.
To address this challenge, we have a Financial Connector to connect the right church planter to the right partnering church(es).
Acts 29 is a diverse, global family of church-planting churches. As a part of that family, the Acts 29 US Southeast Network has some distinct features that work in conjunction with the global assessment standards set by our Acts 29 Central Resource Team.
The Acts 29 US Southeast Church Planter Cohort (CPC) is designed for men who are already recommended for Church Planting (or recommended with conditions) and who are already on the ground in the context of their call.
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.
