Every teaching day starts with what we call "Arise". It is 30-45 minutes of inspiring praise and worship, a devotion/'mini-sermon' or other input followed by an opportunity to give a response. Arise sets the tone for the day, and it is often the place where God meets us. We also consider it a place of learning - whether it may be leadership, communication, or creative expression. It is a workshop where we meet God and grow together.
Both students and teachers are involved, and on Tuesdays the whole house is with us - that is, Euroclass, Acts Academy, staff and volunteers from the Service Centre, AKBU and Kirkeibyen and the employees at "Nærværket".
In your local church or other service context, you will be involved in practical work. Read more under Trips & Internship.
'Onward' is the name of the student's self-selected stream. We offer Creative lab, Communication & Storytelling and Leadership & Innovation. Every Wednesday is reserved for 'Onward'. In addition, there will be weeks throughout the year with intensified teaching related to these subjects. See more below.
Our understanding of ourselves and our identity affects how we see the world around us. Therefore, it is important that we understand who we are from God's perspective. We also work with our understanding of God, in terms of a personal relationship, as a father, as a guide, as the Almighty. It is also our goal that everyone is filled by the Holy Spirit and learns to live a prophetic life where it is natural to hear from God and pass on what one hears to help and encourage others.
Bible Doctrine is essential to us. We believe it is important that everyone knows and understands the great narrative of the Bible, and that we can how a theme develops throughout the Bible.
We need to know genres, chronology, and issues of the time, but it is at least as important that we recognize ourselves and be able to put the church, society and life today into perspective. The Bible is dynamic and relevant to all generations.
It provides an overview of the Old Testament and the New Testament.
Every year, books are selected in the Bible that are studied more closely. We delve into the context to understand the specific book in relation to its time. We focus on themes and relevant issues.
Other theological topics and doctrines, such as Christianology and views of salvation are also taught.
On Tuesday morning, we focus on the formation and development of the community spirit, and on how, as a charismatic Christian and church, you can live out the calling to proclaim the Kingdom of God so that it enriches and changes the society of which you are a part.
The goal is to create an understanding of the communities that we as human beings engage in - how they function, what mechanisms they are shaped by, and how to influence and change them.
Throughout the year, Acts Academy offers exciting "Impact Week" courses. These are weeks when our classes are open to guests and focus on one central topic. The teaching will be for all students and will be given by competent and inspiring guest speakers from Denmark and from abroad.
Most "Impact Week" courses start Monday morning at 8:30 a.m. and end Friday morning with breakfast. However, each course is slightly different, so keep up to date here on our website, through our newsletter, or on Facebook.
So far, the following are planned for 2021
