When is the appropriate time to apply to Acts 29 Europe?
If you have already planted your church or currently lead an established church, then you can apply at any time. If you are a new lead planter, called by God, appropriately gifted, confident of the task which lies before you and taking specific steps towards planting, then it is time to apply.
If you are unsure whether this is you, then we would encourage you to wait patiently, seek the Lord for clarity and attend an Acts 29 Europe event at your earliest opportunity. Also, be sure to review “The Ox – Qualifications of an Acts 29 Church Planter” and prayerfully ask yourself if you are the man described therein.
Some great ways to help you determine whether you are called to plant a church and/or partner with Acts 29 Europe include:
1. Listening to “The Mission and Vision of Acts 29 Network” by Mark Driscoll
2. Working through Scott Thomas’ blogs “The Planter’s Ultimatum“, “Am I a Church Planter?“, and Allen Thompson’s “Is Church Planting for Me?” Prayerfully ask yourself if you are the man described therein.
If you desire to do a church planting internship before planting your church or would like to see if there are any opportunities, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com and we’ll see what we can do to connect you with some churches in your target area.
