Acteens Director: Robyn Rooks

Acteens is the missions education organization for teenage girls ages 12-17 or in grades 7-12. Acteens guides teenage girls to a greater understanding of God's work in the world and how they can join Him in His work.

Through Acteens teenage girls have the opportunity to learn about missions in such a way that they are challenged to live their lives openly for Christ in a very real and radical way. Girls have the opportunity to experience the world through mission studies, cultural experiences, and hands-on missions involvement. Acteens learn that God can use them every day in countless ways to change their world.


It is important to note that being a teenager today is very different from being a teenager a generation ago. While some of the typical themes of search for identity, self-esteem, dating, and other relationship issues continue to ring true, the millennials face an entirely different set of challenges related to technology and an ever-evolving world.

Nothing helps Christian teenagers grow more than sharing their faith and seeing others come to know Christ as Savior. Once they've experienced that joy, they will feel more secure in their own relationships with God, and they will want more opportunities to minister to others in the name of Jesus and to tell others about Him. This is the greatest "win-win" with missions education and discipleship for students. While students are growing as Christians, they also have opportunities to lead others to Christ.

Students who are active in missions education not only learn more about biblical truths, but they also learn how to apply them in their daily lives and they have opportunities individually and in groups to put into practice what they are learning. This includes the opportunity to share their faith in Christ in a variety of ways and in a variety of settings.
