Apply

We are now accepting applications for the September 2014 program of the Antioch Center for Training and Sending (ACTS) School of Frontier Missions hosted in Colorado Springs, Colorado and the August 2014 program hosted in Atlanta, GA, at the IHOP Atlanta Missions Base.

The application deadline is June 30, 2014 for the September 2014 program in Colorado Springs and August 1, 2014 for the August 2014 program in Atlanta, but we encourage you to submit your application as soon as you make a decision to attend the ACTS program as enrollment will be limited to 50 participants.

Please note that the ACTS program is a rigorous training program designed for young leaders (ages 18–35) who desire to be full-time intercessory missionaries. As we can only accept 50 participants, acceptance into the program is highly selective based on a number of practical factors, including commitment to God, demonstrated leadership, and life circumstances.

1. Personal Journey. Please write a summary of your personal journey in Christ, including your conversion, family life, and any experiences that you have had overseas on short-term or long-term outreaches. Please also include any life-controlling issues that you are struggling with, whether mental, emotional, or relational.

NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE
Please note that upon submitting your complete application packet (all required components), we will contact you within 10 business days via email or phone to set up a phone interview with you. We will begin to notify prospective students of acceptance beginning April 1, 2014. However, we encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible as we will give priority consideration to applicants who submit their applications early. We only expect to admit 50 students per class and we generally reach that threshhold very quickly. Once we reach that threshhold, we will place remaining qualified applicants on a waiting list. Upon your acceptance, you will receive an email, letter of acceptance, and/or phone call from us. A non-refundable deposit of $350 will be required within two weeks of acceptance notification to secure your spot in the program.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at school@antiochcenter.com (Colorado Springs school) or atlanta@ACTSschool.com (Atlanta school).
