ACTS is a missions organization committed to equipping young leaders to pioneer the expansion of the gospel amongst unreached and unengaged people groups through worship and prayer and tireless church planting.
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.
ACTS Summer Experience is designed for college students and young adults to spend their summer break overseas on mission in the 10/40 window. Whether it's along the coast of the Mediterranean, or trekking through the mountains of the Himalayas, we invite you to spend your summer experiencing God's desire for the nations, and His heart for you.
ACTS Summer Experience Teams will be sent out to various locations in the 10/40 Window and will be hosted by existing ACTS teams. Together, they will engage in joyful worship, contending prayer, and the proclamation of the Gospel among some of the most unreached portions of the world.
Step out this summer and have an experience that could change your life!
