Education is an important companion to evangelism and discipleship. Some may wonder why we invest so much into education.
It comes down to two Biblical beliefs:
1. The purpose of each student is to glorify God through his/her unique giftings and talents.
2. God has created each student with a specific career path in mind.
The Bible does not separate spiritual from the physical. A young person's spiritual purpose to glorify God and enjoy Him is lived out in the context of his physical activities. The purpose of ACTS is to equip and prepare each student for a life of glorifying God after high school graduation. For some, that will mean being equipped to glorify God in college and then as a successful engineer, doctor, teacher or other professional. For others, our responsibility is to prepare them for trades and jobs that may or may not require additional training.
We have the privilege of discipling students spiritually and training them mentally, physically and emotionally. With ACTS as a springboard, a generation of young people will grow up to be godly fathers, godly mothers, godly professionals, God-honoring tradesmen, Biblical business owners, and God-glorifying employees.
One of the critical pieces that Swanson Mission plays in this process is by bringing knowledge of what it takes to be successful in the global community. Combined with this knowledge is our ability to coach educators to equip students for work either at home or abroad.
About 80 students are enrolled at ACTS to engage in a high-quality education. Our purpose is to teach, train, disciple and prepare them to glorify God and enjoy Him within the context of the careers that He's created them for.
Thank you for being part of God's plan bring salvation and life-purpose to the village of Aninuan. Together, we are God's co-workers, privileged to launch a generation of young people into their purpose to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.
We're a family on mission to bring the good news of Jesus to the Philippines.
