The Ambassadors Community for Theological Study is intended to enrich and equip laity for intentional service as ambassadors for Christ in homes, churches, and in their communities. It provides comprehensive exposure to the foundations of Lutheran faith through classroom and experiential education.

 The primary goals of ACTS are:

  • To increase in laity the ability to intentionally live and share the Christian faith.
  • To develop in laity a fuller understanding of the Bible, the theology of our church, and the practice of ministry.
  • To equip in laity leadership special areas of ministry and service as ambassadors for Christ.

A typical course will consist of 10 hours of large-group instruction by a recognized authority, offered in two five hour Saturday sessions.  Plus five two hour small groups, usually done on a weeknight chosen by the group and led by a rostered leader.
