Acts 29 Application - Preparing to Plant - US West Network (P2P V2)

When is the appropriate time to apply to Acts 29?

If you are a preparing to plant a church in the next 12 months or less, then now is time to apply.  If you have already planted your church or currently lead an established church planting church, then you can apply at any time through our 'existing church' track.  Please note that clarity of vision and gifting to plant is more important than a precise timeline, if you are uncertain as to whether church planting is for you, please take time to talk and pray this through with you local sending church leadership. 

Some great ways to help you determine whether you are called to plant a church and/or partner with Acts 29 include:

- Attending an Acts 29 event hosted by your local network.

- Read through the "About" section of our website including our Distinctives and Values.  

- Contact your local Acts 29 church to find out more about planting with Acts 29.

If you want to find out more about local church planting residencies or about our Pre-Assessment Track, please email your Assessment Coordinator for more details.
