  1. Greetings fellow resurrection proclaimers. I am pleased to now follow your Acts8 work and hope to meet you at General Convention. I have served for the past 10 years as Missioner for Evangelism in the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas. I would love to meet and learn what you are doing in your missional work. Thank you for your commitment to prayer and mission!

  2. I am a new visitor to The Acts 8 Movement. How do I join your Society? I see great content on FaceBook and distributed by ECF’s Vital Posts, but how can I learn more about becoming engaged in the Movement?

    1. Sorry it has taken us so long to respond. The Acts 8 Core Team has just finished a planning meeting and more details will be available soon. In the meantime, be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter @Acts8Movement
