Acts 29 Network Ministry Partnership
The Acts 29 Network is devoted to planting churches that plant churches, and bringing renewal to churches that are dying. And like Western Seminary, they long to see a gospel-centrality at the heart of the ministry that springs from each church. Western's own evangelical mission and theological beliefs prove us to share many convictions about the Lord and his work, and so we're pleased to train the people who will lead Acts 29 churches. That's why we've built a partnership to offer special benefits to staff of Acts 29 Network churches who seek faithful and biblical seminary training.

Gospel-centrality for instruction and spirituality
The gospel is the power of God for salvation and the basis for lives of holliness on Earth. It far transcends any tips or tricks that we might offer about how best to minister. Each degree program we offer is built upon a foundation of biblical studies and hermeneutics, with an eye toward exploring how the the gospel is further unpacked through each book of the Bible. Even skill-based and spiritual formation courses are taught with an understanding that ministry should be fueled by connection to gospel-purposes, rather than pragmatism. The result of training like this is not only knowledge, but genuine transformation. See what our president has to say about the gospel...
