The Acts 2 Revitalization Journey

Facilitating Spirit-empowered health and growth

Gerad Strong on January 31, 2018

The Acts 2 Journey revitalization cohort helps pastors and church leaders advance their churches into a new dimension of health and growth by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Under the leadership of Alton Garrison, Assemblies of God assistant general superintendent, this cohort process includes four retreats over a one-year period. Each retreat begins with a Friday session for pastors and spouses and addresses leading change, conflict resolution, time management, recruiting team members, casting vision, communication and much more.

The Saturday session is for pastors, spouses and the vision teams who pastors select from their churches. Pastors bring eight to 15 people from their congregations to help them plan for the future.

A vision team can consist of deacons, staff members and other influencers from a wide range of ages. The vision team is critical to the process as it takes on ownership of the Acts 2 Journey and helps plan and launch the strategy that emerges.

The Acts 2 English or Spanish cohorts allow churches of all sizes and geographical locations to receive these vital elements for successful spiritual, relational and numeric growth.
