Our ACTS School of Frontier Missions is a long-term training school designed to prepare young leaders to pioneer churches and houses of prayer in the Middle East, North Africa, Eurasia, Asia, and beyond. Prospective students can apply online today!
ACTS hosts several events every year to inspire and mobilize believers to engage their lives in the Great Commission. Our Annual Conference is hosted in Colorado Springs every year with prominent missions and church leaders. We also seek to ignite campus movements through our campus tours and meet students where they are.
ACTS Research is an online resource center providing free tools and resources to equip missionary and prayer movements with Christ-centered, gospel-saturated materials, as well as engaging and inspiring stories from the field.
The Antioch Center for Training and Sending (ACTS) School of Frontier Missions is a unique training program designed to equip young leaders (18-35 years old) to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and change the world through worship, prayer, and a bold witness. With a high premium on keeping the First and Great Commandment as their priority, students will be prepared and mobilized for the Great Commission and to blaze a pathway to build a culture of prayer and worship in the hardest and darkest places of the world.
ACTS School begins with three months of training at the Antioch Center for Training and Sending in Colorado Springs at Every Home for Christ (EHC). These three months of training are designed to equip the student as a missionary and plant worship-based prayer furnaces all over the world. Students will be immersed in the EHC prayer room and receive instruction from leaders and instructors like Brian Kim and Stephen Venable
After the initial three months of training, students will participate in a short-term international outreach to a region inside the 10/40 Window (possible locations include nations in North Africa, East Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, Southeast Asia, East Asia, etc.). During this outreach, students will be sent out in ministry teams to partner with local leaders and churches to make disciples and plant worship-based prayer furnaces focused on exalting Jesus in the nations and contending for a great harvest.
Upon successful completion of the ACTS School training program, students who desire to receive further training as a full-time intercessory missionary can participate in an optional advanced training track that will further prepare students to succeed as cross-cultural intercessory missionaries. Upon successful completion of this second track, students will have the opportunity to be sent to the frontier mission field throughout the 10/40 Window.
