We have a summer mission opportunity for you! Brothers' Keeper is a multi-denominational stateside mission June 19 to 24, 2022 sponsored by the West Virginia Baptist Association. The Brothers’ Keeper ministry is based at Parchment Valley in Ripley, West Virginia.
Brothers' Keeper reaches out to the Jackson County West Virginia area (one of the poorest in all of West Virginia) by building wheelchair ramps, decks, house repairs, tarring roofs and more. Our students will lead in various capacities while serving on work teams around the county.
Several of our ACT'ers have participated in this mission through the years. If you would like to participate in Brothers' Keeper, registration forms and more information is available from leadership.
Brothers' Keeper, affectionately known as "BK" for short was established in the year 2000. Based at Parchment Valley Conference Center reaches out every year to the community for mission projects. Most are construction projects for low income families or families with a handicapped member. Youth groups from around West Virginia and surrounding states have come in to do mission work in Jackson County, West Virginia.
Every year Brothers' Keeper serves over families all over Jackson County, all while developing a mind for mission work in over 100 youth missionaries and our adult counselors and crew chiefs.
At the center of yearly planning is gospel scripture from the book of Matthew, chapter 25, verse 40. What better way to serve Christ than by serving his creation?
It's Christmas in July! We welcome both ACT BG and UToledo students to the "Weaver Ranch" (6260 Prov Neap Swan Rd Swanton OH 43558) for a Christmas celebration at 6:30 on July 15!
This is the perfect time to celebrate Christ's birth without all the trappings of holiday hubbub that take over our whole society every December.
We will enjoy Christmas carols, Linus (Peanuts) sharing the Nativity story and a Christmas devotion!
Bring your ice skates (for real!) for the ice rink in the barn! We'll have a snowball fight and bring a silly gift (find a dollar store special) to exchange in our summer white elephant gift exchange.
We will still have our regular hot dogs and pudgie pies for cooking over the fire!
Active Christians Today will have a table at the Student Involvement Fair August 31 from 11 AM to 3 PM on Centennial Mall. We would love to have you join us and find out more about ACT UToledo!

C'mon out and say hi and meet some great people!
Active Christians Today (ACT) is a community whose foundation is Christ. Our purpose is to help people establish and develop a relationship with Christ and become productive leaders in God's family. How do we do that? Our students share a little bit about what ACT means to them:
