ACTION Midwest is a six-week discipleship training and cross-cultural mission program. Prepare to experience God’s missional heart with passionate people that are prepared to sacrifice much to see God’s love transform their world. You will be teamed up with people from across North America and serve alongside long-term missionaries worldwide. Your adventure starts with a one-week Orientation that is packed with spiritual formation, team building and mission training. During your four-week Ministry Assignment you will participate in community transformation through intercessory prayer, creative outreach and compassion initiatives. Following your cross-cultural assignment, teams will regroup in Kansas to debrief experiences and prepare to live the mission back home. Join us as we shine the light of Jesus around the world!
Just seeing how God works in the hearts and lives of missionaries on the field has given me a greater desire for that in my own life. I can't wait to see where God calls me in the future!ACTION Participant, 2012
