In 2011 the ACTS Church Network was initiated with the specific purpose of ‘Helping churches launch churches in the greater Austin area.’ Between 2012 and 2013, ACTS Church Lakeway identified a group of families who would start a new church on the north edge of Austin, under the leadership of
Pastor Gabe Kasper.
In September of 2013 ACTS Church Leander was officially launched and joined ACTS Church Lakeway in its strategy of Multiplying Followers, Multiplying Leaders, and Multiplying Churches.
Between 2014 and 2017, two additional churches joined the ACTS Network: ACTS Church Lakeline and ACTS Church Kyle.
The ACTS Church Network continues to pursue the Spirit-fueled goal of helping churches launch churches in the greater Austin area
THE MISSION OF THE ACTS CHURCH NETWORK IS SIMPLE:
We are disciples
who make disciples who make disciples . . .
We are churches
that plant churches that plant churches . . .
And we send changed people into a changing world.
All to the Glory of God.
