What is Acts 4:29-30

Acts 4:29-30 (Acts 430 for short) is a non-profit organization that helps to organize and fund events such as Charism Schools and Miracle Healing Services. Our goal is to help people encounter God and to develop the spiritual gifts that God has equipped his people with through the Holy Spirit. Therefore, we help promote the ministries of those who work with and foster the use of spiritual gifts. Such ministries include Encounter School of Ministry, Damian Stayne’s ministry,  the late Fr. Peter Hocken’s work with the Messianic Jewish Dialogue, Global Awakening, and Dr. Mary Healy’s initiatives .

The name of our organization comes from Acts 4:29-30 which reads:

“And now, Lord, take note of their threats, and enable your servants to speak your word with all boldness, as you stretch forth [your] hand to heal, and signs and wonders are done through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” (Acts 4:29-30)

The Charism Schools and other conferences we promote are designed to build the faith of God’s people and to help them operate with the spiritual gifts that God gives us to be his witnesses.

Encounter School of Ministry

The Encounter School of Ministry draws from the richness of our Catholic heritage and seeks to teach, equip, and activate disciples to demonstrate the love of God through the power of the Holy Spirit in their spheres of influence. In conformity with the teachings and traditions of the Catholic Church, the school offers students a dynamic 2-year training program designed to take you to the next level in your ministry.
