Acts 29 is a global community of diverse churches that plant other churches. Today there are over 700 churches in the Acts 29 Network and many more churches in the pipeline.
Ireland has a rich Christian heritage but is presently in a rapid descent toward full-blown secularism. And yet, there are signs of hope as church planters introduce the gospel in fresh and ancient ways into the Irish culture. We are partnering with Acts 29 Ireland to provide the infrastructure they need to raise up church planters, coach existing planters and plant more churches all across the island. Lucas Parks is the director of Acts 29 Ireland and the Lead Pastor at Village Belfast.
In October 2018, Lucas Parks and Village Belfast will plant Village South Belfast through Andrew Elder and his team near Queens University. We will send a team from Foothill to help prepare for their Launch Sunday. We will also help fund Village S. Belfast as God enables us in the coming years.
Devin Deuell and his team planted The Commons LA in October 2017 in the shadow of UCLA. Their goal is to be a community of Christians following Jesus together for the flourishing of the city. Already, TCLA has seen people saved and baptized and is making strategic progress in the neighborhood and surrounding schools.
Harry and his wife, Elisa, planted La Plaine Church in the 20th Arrondisement of Paris, France 2 years ago. The 20th Arrondisement has the second highest Muslim population, the most single mothers and is the third poorest district in Paris. There are only 2 churches to serve a population of 200,000. La Plaine Church shines like a city on a hill in the midst of a very dark culture.
We have created a Church Planting Fund to help with churches we will plant directly from Foothill Church. Our goal is to launch our first church in 2019 with more to come in the future. Church Planting in Southern California is expensive so we’re saving now so we can be ready when the opportunity is ripe.
