Littleton, CO, United States, 2006/09/30 - Following July 1 merger, Christian organizations ACMC and Caleb Project now announce a new name: Initiative360. The new organization helps believers explore, discover, and activate their roles in God's mission to bring his love to the world.
CEO Dr. Gregory Fritz is pleased to introduce Initiative360 – Take it Global, a new organization formed by the merger of ACMC (Advancing Churches in Missions Commitment – Fort Wayne, IN) and Caleb Project (Littleton, CO).
Initiative360 seeks to further the kingdom of Jesus Christ by serving the missions interests of believers and the churches, agencies, and institutions of which they are a part in world outreach. The new organization will help believers and their churches explore, discover, and activate their roles in God’s mission, whether in local neighborhoods or around the world. As a partnership of members, Initiative360 will walk alongside churches on their missional journey with life-changing products, services, curriculum, and real-time experiences.
Regarding the new name, Fritz says, “I have always been encouraged and blessed by those who take initiative with the faith that God gives them. God himself is the Divine Initiator, the One who created the world and all mankind, redeems us from our sinful existence, and sends us out with his salvation message to the peoples who have yet to receive the gospel.”
“Like the Joshua 3 story in which God moves the priests to first step in the river, we are called to take steps of faith and obedience,” Fritz continues “and as we walk, he will lead us to the nations. As you take steps of faith and interact with those in your church, community, and the world, your obedience and love for Jesus will be an encouragement for those walking with you!”
Former CEO of ACMC and current President of Initiative360, Brent Eimer concurs. “By connecting with resources, web services, speaking and teaching services, networking frameworks, and powerful training events, Initiative360 partners will discover dramatically increased effectiveness in their missions calling!”
Initiative360 was formed in July 2006 when ACMC and Caleb Project (calebproject.org) joined forces. Combining the teams and skills of the two organizations energizes the movement toward bringing the gospel to every person and nation. Initiative360 partners will find many benefits through membership such as networking, web resources, equipping events and products, as well as many opportunities to activate missional passion.
