Acts 29 seeks to be an international, multicultural mission movement of young adults who have been discipled and transformed for missional leadership in the church and in the world.
The movement of Acts 29 began as a partnership between Iglesias del Pacto Evangelical del Ecuador (The Evangelical Covenant Church in Ecuador) and the Mission of the Covenant Church of Sweden. The first school was held in Montecristi, Ecuador, in 2004. Since then Chile, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Republic of Congo, Finland, India, Mexico, Russia, Spain, Sweden, China, Thailand, and the United States have hosted schools, and additional countries have sent participants.
Acts 29 schools are self-supporting, primarily through fees paid by participants. The organizing churches are responsible for disbursing surpluses or recovering losses.
