Home ABOUT ACTS 29 Candidate Churches

Candidate Churches

Acts 29 Candidates are church planters that have been approved through a formal assessment interview but not yet Full Members (to be a Full Member within Acts 29 a church planter must complete any conditions set in their assessment and gather a certain number of committed adults).  Acts 29 Candidates consist of Lead Planter's in the gathering phase of their church plant and are looking for individuals that are committed to helping plant a gospel-centered church in their area.  If you are in the area of some of these churches and would like to help in the start up of an Acts 29 church, please feel free to contact the pastor.  Many more new church plants will be listed here as we add more Candidates frequently; please check back regularly for a church plant in your area. 

If a church isn't listed in an area where you'd like to see an Acts 29 church, feel free to fill out this form to show us where you and others would like an Acts 29 church. Interest Groups for Potential Future Acts 29 Church Plants.
