Acts 29 Oak Hill Academy

The Acts 29 Oak Hill Academy aims to deliver excellent in-context theological training and resources for the UK, Europe and the 10:40 window.

We want the Academy to help:

  • make and mature disciples of Jesus Christ
  • equip Christians and Christian leaders in partnership with local missional churches
  • nurture a culture of multiplication and church planting
  • invest in the next generation of missionary theologians

In other words, we aim to provide gospel training to Christians and churches where and when they need it; at a seminary-level, at a foundation-level and even to new converts at an entry-level. Our in-context learning courses are flexible ways to combine independent study, study-group discussions and intensives to access rigorous theology.
