CHURCH PLANTING SUNDAY | ACTS 29 NETWORK

Acts 29 is a diverse, global community of healthy, multiplying churches characterized by theological clarity, cultural engagement, and missional innovation.
We firmly believe in God’s calling through the Great Commandment and Great Commission to share the gospel and make disciples. One of the ways we do this is by supporting church plants.
As a church in the Acts 29 network, we celebrated Church Planting Sunday as part of our Vision Sunday. To find out more or get more involved in church planting:

CENTRAL ASIA PROJECT | LAPTOPS FOR PASTORS

The goal is to get laptops for Pastors who are running home churches.  We would like to set a goal of 5 laptops, that's a total of $2,500.  This would provide 5 pastors with laptops.  The laptops, and the software on it will help them to be able to learn how to do expository studies, Greek, Hebrew, etc.
