Topic #1: Mission, Practices, Impact and Metrics in the Book of Acts

Let’s study the mission, practices, impact and metrics in the Book of Acts. You’ll find a timeline of the Book of Acts below with important places and players. Under that you’ll find a table with the key references from that time-period, the disciples’ practices, the results that came from those practices and finally you’ll read what they recorded.

It’s important to understand what practices led to what results and what they recorded. What they recorded and noticed was a result of certain practices. What they recorded was important and reflected back to the practices. 

Let’s discover together what they recorded, learn what we should be looking for, what practices we should pursue, and what metrics we should measure.
