US West | Coaching and Training
Acts 29 - A diverse, global family of church-planting churches


Stage-Specific Cohorts
Every lead pastor in Acts 29 US West is placed in one of our a coaching cohorts. Led by pastors in our network, these cohorts provide attendees the opportunity to connect with other pastors in a similar church stage, encouraging and learning from one another. Our primary goal is to connect your most significant needs with resources, training, and peers that you can learn from – all in a relational context. Cohorts meet in person twice a year, and connect virtually throughout the year as needed.

Acts 29 US West Online Training
We want to train, and we want to resource. Acts 29 US West Online Training is an effort to do both. We currently offer ten courses in our “Leader’s Series” that collectively provide the curriculum for a turn-key church-planting residency that can be used as-is or customized as desired. While these courses were designed with the church planter in mind, many of our churches find that they can utilize them to train a wide range of people in things like leadership, discipleship, and more.

Our courses at-a-glance:

  • Leader’s Series Program
    • 10 courses
    • 2-3 year turnkey Church Planter and Pastor Residency
    • 6-9 month Church Planter Fellowship
    • Single course options provide benefit to a wide range of people
  • Future courses and programs in the works

Local Church Residencies
Throughout the Western United States, we offer church-based residencies in a variety of cities and churches. These residencies are affordable and accessible, offering a wide range of people an opportunity to explore the call to plant and get trained to launch.

Training the Trainers
This program trains our local churches in the “nut and bolts” of running robust training, intentional discipleship, and residency programs in their local churches. You come with the “want to” and we provide some “how to” in a flexible way that encourages you to customize for your context, church, stage, and more.

Some key highlights:

  • In-person initial training that transitions into a virtual cohort
  • “Training the Trainers” answers many questions that trainers encounter, such as:
    • How to utilize the online training opportunities offered by Acts 29 US West
    • Who do we train?
    • How can we structure our schedules so that we have time to train?
    • What are the objectives?
    • What tools can I use?
    • How can we fund training initiatives?
