Active Christians Today
Campus Ministry at the University of Toledo and Bowling Green State University
A few things we like to do.
Dinner & Bible Study
One of our goals is to help students learn to read, study, and apply the Bible to their lives. We offer a weekly Bible study that follows a family style dinner. We often hear from students, “I just love the family atmosphere at ACT. The food isn’t too bad either.”
Road Trips & Retreats
We love taking road trips, church visits, and retreats in order to help students break free of the classroom paradigm and to help them put their faith into practice. Jesus classroom was often while he was on the way to help people somewhere else. The Church is not a building but people living the way of Jesus on the way to help others.
Leave an Empty Chair
Jesus provided an “empty chair” for those seeking God. His teaching revealed and nudged open hearts toward God as well as exposed and challenged closed ones. It didn’t matter to Jesus if you were a Roman soldier, a leper, rich or poor status, male or female, Jewish or non-Jewish, prostitute or Pharisee. Jesus “wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.” 1Timothy 2:4
ACT… making Jesus famous since the 70’s
ACT has been actively pursuing and sharing Jesus at our Toledo and Bowling Green, Ohio campuses since the 70’s. Read more about our history.
One of the unique features of ACT is our ownership and use of a campus house at both our University of Toledo and BGSU locations. Our houses are strategically located right next to campus providing students a conveniently close off-campus gathering place.
Our houses could easily be adopted by churches and handy individuals. We have the following needs: new flooring, kitchen upgrades, windows, parking lot repair, garage repairs/renovations, landscaping, decking, painting, HVAC, and so much more. Let us know if you or your team would like to tackle one or more of these projects or if you are willing to fund a project.
We need your help!
We could not do what we do for very long without the support of our amazing prayer warriors and financial partners. In these challenging times (spiritually, emotionally, and financially) we have a growing need for more prayer and financial partners.
What Students are saying about ACT…
“ACT means family to me. I’ve made great lifelong friends, and I’ve grown in my faith as well. My spiritual family challenges me to be a better person and Christian.”
“ACT rekindled my passion for Christ. I have felt much closer to God and seen Him do many things in my life. ACT has encouraged me to dig deeper, to ask more challenging questions, and to love the people around me just as Jesus has loved me.”
“ACT is my family on campus. I have some of my closest friends here and some of the best mentors to help guide me in my faith. My faith has blossomed and I’ve had so many fun experiences and adventures.”
