Dear Students, Previous Students, and Prospective Students of ACTS:
On October 1st we launch yet another school year for ACTS – Antioch Christian Training School originally, now “ACTS International Bible College” – after 28 years of ministry.
In that time we have served biblically-oriented and Spirit-led leaders in mainline Protestant, Independent, Pentecostal, Charismatic, Evangelical, Messianic Jewish, and even some Roman Catholic Christian settings, some for eventual ordination, some for merely “laying foundations”, some establishing parachurch ministries of their own, and some for advancing still further in Christian leadership. Our focus continues to be Christ Himself, the truths of Scripture, and practical maturity in the ways of the Spirit. We have trained people from over 20 different countries, from PSEO high school students to pastors and “ministry-assistants” in their 50’s, 60’s, and beyond (and everything in between!). But we are determined to serve and bless everyone whom the Lord Himself chooses to send to us, regardless of their life-circumstances!
Many of you can only take classes part-time; some are aiming at a certificate, or an associate, bachelor, or master’s degree. One can still be a full-time day-school student here for $3,000 a year, for 3 semesters, with books and tuition included – and with credits usually transferable to Northwestern in St. Paul, Crown College in St. Bonifacius, or Vision University in California (on-line). But the main thing is “going deeper with Jesus” Himself. One of our mottos is, “Faith in search of understanding.” Another is, “Equipping for obedience...and faithfulness.”
As a small school (usually about a dozen or so students) we are able to “personalize” people’s training so as to become the “called ones” that God Himself intends you to be; for us, there is no “one size fits all,” each one needs to keep growing according to his or her own integrity in our Lord. We hope then, that many of you will be able to join us in our new “venture” again this fall. There is much to do before our Lord returns, and ACTS wants to help you be ready to “do well” until that Day finally comes!
Registration forms are located in the church office or outside Way of the Lord church sanctuary. We look forward to hearing back from you! And may God bless you in everything you do.
