- An intentional undertaking of the churches in Detroit to reconnect with the communities, evangelizing and spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ through a full range of programs.
Acts 2 Enterprise (A2E), through local congregations, is intentionally undertaking the reconnecting of Detroit, Michigan with the communities, in which they reside, evangelizing the city with the Good News of Jesus Christ. They are doing this through a Christ-centered presence in the areas of: literacy, job partnerships, parenting classes, sports camps/VBS, leadership, and community beautification. A2E will strategically provide before and after school tutoring which would be facilitated by Lutheran leaders which will also include computer classes, learning strategies to enhance reading and comprehension, test taking skills, life skills, and biblical teachings along with sharing the Gospel.
