Educating to Serve. Equipping to Lead

Acts Project

Acts Project — Vocational Gifts for the Global Church

The Acts Project is a summer-long missions experience in which students of all majors experience how their course of study is preparing them for a life of good work for God’s kingdom. It is also a way to fulfill Honors, student teaching, or internship requirements.

The program is preceded by an intensive semester of preparation. CM420 Missions: Foundations and Applications meet weekly in a small, highly interactive study setting, where students explore God’s call to cultivate the Gospel around the world and study current trends in missions. Once on the field, Acts Project interns serve alongside believers of many nationalities and live with missionaries who become cultural guides, vocational mentors, and spiritual friends. At the end of the program, students convene for a debriefing week to process, discuss and move forward transformed.

Cost: $300 course fee + $4,000-$5,000 support
Covers 100% of the program: class field trip, airfare, living stipend for 2+ months on-field, and debriefing week.

Contact Dr. Scott Jones, Director of the Acts Project, when you’re ready to apply for the program or with your requests for more information.
