A Word from the ACTS Founder, Marty Meyer

marty meyerReading through the book of the Bible, “The Acts of the Apostles”, we are struck by the realization that it is not primarily about the 12 apostles who were with Jesus. Rather than Peter, James and John taking center stage, we are thrust into the missionary adventures of Paul, Barnabas, John-Mark, Silas and Apollos and others who were recognized as apostles.

We learn from the parables of Jesus that the kingdom of God is always multiplying, always growing. So it’s not surprising that from the early days of the church- God was multiplying his apostles- sent ones- called of God to start new works and expand His Kingdom. According to Ephesians 4:11 apostles work with prophets, evangelist, pastors and teachers to equip God’s people and to build up His church.

A peculiar thing about the book of Acts is its ending, or shall we say, the lack thereof. It speaks of Paul preaching the gospel in Rome “with all boldness and without hindrance!” One is compelled to turn the page but there’s nothing there… that’s it. Well, not exactly. The Acts of the Apostles continues to be written today wherever men and women of God step out in faith and in obedience to God expand His church on earth.

We have created ACTS, the Apostolic Catalyst Training School with the goal of equipping pioneers to complete the great commission. ACTS is for individuals and teams with apostolic calling and spiritual passion that want to impact the world for Jesus. ACTS will prepare such people to refine their vision and gain the skills and knowledge to make their dreams for God reality.

ACTS Intensive is an abbreviated version of ACTS especially designed for those in the process of pioneering or who have a clearly identifiable pioneering project. The ACTS Intensive will hit the ground running to equip pioneers to successfully implement their apostolic vision.

Each team graduating from the ACTS Intensive will be linked with an experienced Apostolic Coach who will provide accountability and insight for achieving their vision.

Join the next ACTS and prepare to change your world!
