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 4-6 people from across North America and serve alongside long-term missionaries and church planters worldwide. We are all called to be missionaries no matter where our home is, but through ACTION we want to provide an opportunity for you to experience God's heart for another people group in another part of the globe. Join us this summer and let Jesus take you to "Uncharted" places around the world and in your heart!
During this experience on ACTION, God increased in me the desire to see God's Kingdom come no matter what the cost on my life.

You will celebrate what God has done in your life and in the lives of others, helping bring closure to your experiences and affirming principles and commitments that can be carried on to your home community.
