Announcement: Introducing Boot Camp 2.0

Acts 29's Goal: Helping People Know Jesus

The other day my daughter asked me what I did at work.

“I help pastors start new churches,” I said. Then I asked her, “Why do you think I do that?”

“So more people can know Jesus,” she replied.

The Acts 29 Network helps pastors plant churches that plant churches so more people can know Jesus. One of the ways we do that is by offering training for pastors and their ministry teams on how to plant these multiplying churches. Acts 29 boot camps are a key part of that training.

Acts 29 boot camps are considered some of the best training available for those whom God has called to plant church-planting churches. Over the last ten years, God has used our boot camps to encourage and equip men to start churches across North America and around the world.

Boot Camp 2.0 is for Strategic Training of Planters 

Over the last ten years, however, our boot camps evolved into large conferences that provided helpful content for all types of people involved in a variety of ministries. They did not allow for the kind of gospel-driven strategic thinking that must take place if a man is to plant a church-planting church.

Therefore, we are changing up our boot camp offerings. Boot camps that follow a large conference format will now be the exception, not the rule. Instead, most future boot camps follow the format we are calling Boot Camp 2.0.

We are making this change so we can continue to provide the best possible training for ministry leaders that want to be part of a movement of church-planting churches. We aim to serve those committed to advancing the gospel throughout the world, resulting in many, many more disciples from all nations. We want to practically help pastors start new churches so more people can know Jesus.

Boot Camp 2.0 is for Planters to Talk, Learn, Dream and Plan with Other Planters

Boot Camp 2.0 will provide opportunities for all kinds of ministry leaders to hear what it takes to plant church-planting churches. It will also provide those specifically interested in planting church-planting churches a place to talk, learn, dream, and plan for a movement of the gospel with some of the best church planting practitioners in their area.

We want to do everything we can to help pastors start new churches because we want more people to know Jesus. We hope God allows Boot Camp 2.0 to help that happen.
