Do you have a desire to become a person of action and contemplation? Do you desire to be a Christ-like peacemaker, a mission bridge-builder and a servant-leader? Do you believe that Christ’s kingdom is not about a program but rather about being one with God’s people in a community of relational unity that leads to deeply shared mission together? If you do you share a vision that we call “missional-ecumenism.” The ACT3 Cohort may be the very kind of leadership training experience that you need to jump start your journey into a new stage of Christian growth and leadership.
The ACT3 Cohort is a nine-month process than involves various learning styles, a prayerfully selected small group of 10-20, intense discussions and intentional accountability. The cohort group generally includes clergy and non-clergy, men and women, members of all ages, and participants from various church backgrounds and denominations including Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox.
The first ACT3 Cohort was held in 2012. Over 60 leaders are now graduates. A new cohort will begin on Monday, September 11, 2017. The other all-day meetings for this new group will be on three Mondays; December 11, 2017, and March 12, 2018, and May 14, 2018. These all-day sessions meet from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. in Carol Stream, Illinois. Attendance is mandatory for you to share in a cohort group. Access to O’Hare Airport and the Interstate Highway system is near to Carol Stream, a western suburb of Chicago.
Dr. John H. Armstrong, the president of ACT3 Network–a seasoned teacher, author and mentor–will facilitate the ACT3 Cohort group 2017-18.
