ACTS-OLOGY School of Ministry

Acts-ology is a Bible-school and leadership coaching hybrid, inspired by the New Testament and the book of Acts, and specialized for aspiring pastors and church-planters, to help them overcome their uncertainties, practically prepare for pastoral ministry, and become strong, confident leaders that establish churches of mature faith and fruitful growth.

Applications Open for Spring Classes!

This is an intentionally small, specialized school. Only 20 spots left!

A Revolutionary Way to Prepare for Pastoring
  • It includes one-on-one coaching, not just classroom teaching. So it’s specifically tailored to you, your needs, and your situation. You’ll receive personal support and accountability for your own growth, not just an education.
Gain a Specialized, Practical Education
  • It’s condensed and optimized for practical ministry. Due to its practical focus, it will only teach you things that you will use constantly as a pastor or church-planter. There’s no fluff, no filler.
Uniquely Affordable and Efficient
  • It’s a fraction of the price of your average seminary, and…

  • It’s only 8-months time in length (the equivalent of two semesters), making it a fast-track to be fully equipped to plant and/or pastor a church.

Continued Support Post-Graduation, to Help You Launch
  • Additionally, after you’ve finished the regular program in the first eight months, you’ll receive monthly coaching support to help you further with implementation, as you actually walk through the process of planting or pastoring a church, if that’s what you choose to do.

Easy for Anyone's Schedule
  • Anyone can make it work with their schedule. The program includes only one group/class session once per week, in-person, and an additional online, one-on-one coaching session once per week. Twice per week is all!
