What happens in ACTS XXIX . . .

“The book of Acts ends in chapter 28 with Paul under house arrest in Rome, still boldly preaching the Gospel. Luke ends without finishing the story because the story of the Church’s mission continues in every age. We are living the 29th chapter of Acts!
(Unleash the Gospel, Archbishop Allen Vigneron).

Together with God, we are writing the
29th chapter of Acts!

What We Do & How We Do It

We identify, equip and accompany pastors and their leadership teams to discern God's blueprint for their parish culture. ACTSXXIX does this by adhering to the following strategic anchors.


By this, we mean that bishops will assist us to identify missionary pastors in their diocese who are committed to our three essential principles and who are willing to do whatever it takes to transform their parishes so that God can get His world back.


By this we mean several things.

First, we will physically come to a parish. This will better enable us to engage the pastor, his team, and to observe the parish culture.

Second, we are not financially driven. Our ministry costs between zero and whatever a parish may want to offer to pay it forward. The only requirement is travel and a place to stay.

Third, we want to partner with parishes that are strategically located in places where initial seeds of renewal are happening, as well as in areas of the country where the Gospel is most unknown.


By this, we mean we are committed to helping a parish create a road map for evangelization and discipleship that is unique to its own parish culture because we recognize that there is no “magic bullet” or one-size fits all.
