One way we equip our post-college members for the work of ministry is by inviting those who are able to join to become ministry Team Members.

Most Team Members serve covocationally, which means that they continue to work a “day job” while serving in ministry — and by ministry, we don't simply mean the operation of our local church. Much of our ministries happen out in the field: reaching students on the college campus, serving other churches who are under-resourced, caring for the elderly in nursing homes, or working with children in low-income areas.

Fulfilling the Great Commission

In our ministry teams, we work hard together to reach the lost through faithful evangelism, creative programs, and authentic community. Joining a ministry team does involve a high level of time commitment. Some have compared being a team member of Acts2 Network to being part of a busy start-up — an experience that is intense, even all-consuming. Many of our team members volunteer 20+ hours of their time, although that amount may differ depending on the individual’s needs and season of life.

Life on Life Discipleship

The close relationships we develop in our ministry teams provide an ideal context for discipleship. Every Team Member is discipled by a mentor, and we also disciple each other horizontally through regular encouragement and accountability. We strive to provide some amount of challenge for each Team Member, while also being sensitive to each person’s unique strengths and weaknesses, needs, and abilities.

Covenantal Community

We believe that the ultimate goal of the Great Commission is to form the church, the community of believers. And so we not only work together in our ministry teams, but we’re a spiritual family as well. We all struggle with various life challenges: busy seasons at work, children with special needs, battles with addictions and mental health issues, and more. We believe our relationship as fellow team members is not just about getting ministry done, but it's about living life together. Rejoicing with those who rejoice, weeping with those who weep, we’re in this for the long haul. We like to say that we’re covenantally committed to one another.
