Acts is a non-profit mission organization based in Lynchburg, VA. The driving passion of Acts is bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to unreached people groups in one of the most difficult regions in the world. Their ultimate vision is the multiplication of churches until there is a church within walking distance of every person in South Asia. The strategy to achieve this goal is to train and equip indigenous leaders to make disciples and plant multiplying churches.
The strength of the Acts program is the sustainability and replicability of the training centers, which are often located within a local church. Additionally, the unique Acts curriculum is similar to that of a pastoral degree program, but with textbooks that are written at a level the under educated can understand, helping them to grow in their skills and in their relationship with Jesus. This empowers local leaders in remote areas to be equipped to plant and lead churches.
Student candidates are selected for their potential and their vision, then receive full scholarships. Blue Ridge Community Church and Acts have a shared vision to reach the people of South Asia, specifically unreached people groups in the region. Blue Ridge teams have traveled to South Asia for many years, and in the process, have developed many partnerships that have advanced the Kingdom of God.
This is an exciting partnership that will continue and expand Act’s work in this region, building relationships with the leaders and church planters who are bringing the light of Jesus to South Asia, one village after another.
