Acts29 is a discipleship movement that emerged in 2004 when the Mission Covenant Church of Sweden (MCCS) and the Covenant Church of Ecuador (IPEE) formed a partnership. The partnership was a response to the great need of discipleship opportunities for those in the early stages of adulthood. It has expanded since it’s inception and has formed a network of partnerships and schools in countries like Congo, India, Chile, Finland and Spain.
And the movement continues today!
WE ARE A DISCIPLESHIP SCHOOL
We want more than just inform or give knowledge.
We want to participate in the shaping of lives as we follow Jesus.
WE ARE A LEADERSHIP SCHOOL
We want to delegate leadership to young people with great confidence in them. Participants from one school are encouraged to become leaders in a following school under personal guidance.
Some of them are trained to become responsible school leaders in the future.
WE ARE A MISSION SCHOOL
We want to equip young people with tools to preach the gospel, and put them into a situation where the have to give "reason for their faith". We want to help every participant to plan and finish a "mission project" with personal tutorial guidance, during and after the school.
We want to encourage the young people who express their call to serve in mission work.
