A.C.T. Intl Staff Candidate Orientation

Are you exploring how to use your creative gifts for Kingdom service
within the context of a Non-profit structure?

Are you considering becoming a ministry department or project of A.C.T. Intl?

Then join us for this informative workshop.

This workshop is required of anyone desiring to become a ministry department or project of A.C.T. Intl. It is also an excellent workshop for anyone wanting to know more about creating an arts or music non-profit ministry regardless of your affiliation with A.C.T. Intl.

Several things are accomplished during this Workshop/Orientation:

  • Excellent biblical teaching from Byron Spradlin, founder and president of A.C.T. Intl, on:
    • The Role of the Arts and the Artist in Life & Ministry
    • A Clear Understanding of Worship Becoming a Worshiper
    • A Clear Understanding of Calling
    • Understanding the Differences between Occupation, Business, & Ministry: How do they go together for a life-long ministry?
  • Learn the Foundations for Building a Life-long Arts or Music Ministry
  • Learn how A.C.T. Intl can help you move forward with your ministry goals and dreams
  • Hear from and pray for other artistic and creative Christians seeking to use their gifts for Christ’s glory
  • Receive encouragement and counsel for your own ministry goals

A highlight of our time together is the opportunity to hear from and pray for each participant. Come prepared to share briefly, about 12 minutes, including a piece of your artistic gift (i.e., sing or play a song, show a piece of your art, a section of a story or drama).  We will then pray for you.  This is not an audition just a time to hear your heart and pray for you.

Orientation Fee - $200.00*  for first person or married couple.  $100.00* for each additional member of your ministry team. The Orientation fees help us cover costs of facility rental, meals provided, and all orientation materials for you and other team members.

Locations - Most Orientations are in Nashville, TN; however, we do plan Orientations in other areas when there are sufficient candidates in a particular area to make it feasible.  

*When an Orientation is conducted someplace other than Nashville, TN, there is an additional $100 fee per person or married couple for those who live in the city of the Orientation. Since you save on travel and lodging costs, this fee will help cover the travel expenses of those going to your home town to facilitate the Orientation
