Because of who God is and what he's done in Jesus, everyone who believes in him is adopted into his family and gets a new identity. For Soma that new identity shapes how we live all of life. It really is all about Jesus. As the Father sent him, Jesus sends us on his mission of making disciples.
Over the last ten years Acts 29 has emerged from a small band of brothers to over 400 churches in the United States and networks of churches in multiple countries. We want to allow a unifying, uncommon move of God to happen through Acts 29 -- all centered on the gospel and advancing the mission of Jesus through obediently planting church-planting churches. It is our desire to see this leading to millions of lives changed by the power of the Spirit for the glory of God.

"We have the privilege of working at Eastern Washington University. God is doing amazing things in the Northwest and we are thankful to be apart of it. Thank you so much for being a part of our team as we trust God to reach the campus of Eastern Washington University."
John & claire holtz
"God has put the people of Africa on our hearts, and we are eager to use whatever gifts and skills we have to bless the people there. Yes, there is much suffering and poverty and corruption, but there is also beauty and joy and simplicity. We hope to learn from our African brothers and sisters as we live amongst them; we know that they have as much to offer us (if not more) than we have to offer them. We will be serving in Nairobi, Kenya with Africa Inland Mission(AIM). John is an aircraft mechanic and will be using his skills to help maintain the fleet of airplanes that AIM uses to transport missionaries, medical supplies, relief aid, teachers, etc."
Jeremy and Cheryl Stebbins
