Weekly we'll be sharing videos from Acts 29 churches that tell stories of the Gospel transforming the hearts of people, communities, and cities.
Below is a video of Andrew Grills from Australia. Andrew is a church planting candidate with Acts 29 and will be planting a church with City on a Hill in the great city of Geelong in Australia. We are excited to see all that God does through his church plant and invite you to join us in praying for him and his team.

Jake Chambers officially launched Red Door Church in September, 2010. Located in the College Area near San Diego State University, a significant percentage of his church is comprised of and ministers to college students. Why plant near a college campus with transitory students in mind? “I felt like students are being preached to every day,” says Jake. “But the things that are preached are messages like ‘go party,’ and ‘your future career will save you' but nobody is preaching the gospel.” With SDSU also making the nation's list of highest rates of STDs and date rape per capita(not to mention the largest-ever drug bust – 70+ arrests in 2007), it was clear to Jake that it was a place in desperate need of the gospel.

I guess two out of three ...

Where are you re-planting?
We have replanted a small church called Ramilies Road Church, just off the famous Penny Lane (the Beatles wrote a song about it) in Liverpool, UK.

Ramilies Road Church was planted in the early 1930s, through the prayers of two faithful men who wanted to see a Gospel witness around the Penny Lane area of Liverpool. The church saw a time of real growth and vibrance. Sadly, from about the 1980s, things began to decline. In 2008 the church was in a situation where (in their words) ‘they were burying more than they were baptising” and “last one alive turn the lights off”.
This caused the three elders at the time, three ...

Where are you planting?Manchester…specifically in the outlying area of Stockport, but with designs to plant Core groups in various parts of the Greater Manchester area. Leading to small church plants in different contexts in the city.
Briefly describe the story of how you came to plantThrough several short term and long term missions endeavours Jesus opened my eyes and heart to Western Europe as a gospel priority area. As I was involved in some training and ministry in the States I began to pray for an opportunity to go. In September 2001, God called my wife and I to assist in a Calvary church plant in Rome, Italy. After three years He directed us in His providence ...
