Acts is a 501c(3) non-profit missions organization. We began operations in 2019 with the passion to reach the unreached by bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth as the final fulfillment of the Acts 1:8 great commission, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.


The mission of Acts is to train and equip indigenous leaders for the planting of churches among their own unreached people groups throughout South Asia. The ultimate vision is the multiplication of churches until there is a church within walking distance of every person in Asia. To achieve this vision, Acts operates training centers in South Asian countries where local leaders are equipped with pastoral and church planting disciplines.

The strengths of the Acts program are the replicability of the training centers and the approachable curriculum. Most of the Acts training centers are located within a local church. The pastor of that church is often the Acts director and primary trainer of the curriculum. The Acts curriculum contains ten subjects found in most pastoral degree programs; however, they are written and translated so that under-educated leaders can still understand and learn the foundational principles of church planting.

“Acts training has opened my eyes to see the practical meaning of the scripture in a very Asian context.” 2018 Acts graduate

Upon completion of Acts training, most graduates seek to plant a church in a village or area where there are no churches. Some graduates actually begin the church planting before their Acts training, then return with greater knowledge and vision as they reach their communities for Christ. Successful completion of Acts training directly impacts their ability to evangelize and grow the body of Christ.

“Now that I have finished this training, I felt that nearby our village there is another village called Aali. There is no church and they need to hear the gospel. So by the grace of God, that is where we intend to go and plant a church.” 2017 Acts graduatersons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 2 Peter 1:1)
