The best part of my experience with ACTS was the feeling of making a difference in the community. While working at ACTS, I helped develop a Marion County resource directory for community members and helped an old woman move into her new town in Pella. Both of these projects were extremely rewarding and made me feel great about the things going on at ACTS. I knew I was making a difference in Pella by helping others, which was rewarding because I had not had the chance to serve people in the community in this way since entering Central College. Knowing that someone may use the directory I helped create to find help in their lives for financial reasons, health reasons, or other specific needs made me feel great about my work at ACTS. I think ACTS is a great nonprofit organization and will definitely consider it for an internship in the future!
I was a Communication Intern for ACTS Ministries of Iowa. I had a terrific experience working with this organization! ACTS truly lives out the Christian faith in this community. ACTS gives people who want to serve the opportunity to help those in need and provides services to people who need assistance in the community. The biggest part that impacted me about ACTS is that they are really trying to find the best way to help people. They are trying to work with other non-profits in the area and local churches to become aware of all of the resources in the community to be able to direct people in need to the right place. They are using their own time and resources to organize this collaboration among ministries in the area. They also don't just help the people they serve; they are committed to keeping relationships with the people. The staff is great to work with and are dedicated people to their job and to their faith. They are such a blessing to this community!
ACTS Ministries of Iowa is truly and amazing organization. I was fortunate enough to spend some time with ACTS Ministries as a marketing intern and it has truly made a big impact in my life.

ACTS is also try to work with other non-profits in the community to most efficiently and effectively help as many people as they can. The leadership in this organization is amazing and the work is compelling. These people are gifts of God who are just trying to help the community and world we live in one day at a time.

We created ACTS in 2006 out of a simple idea--- how can we do more to serve others in the communities we live in, and do it in a way that shows the love of Christ. Once we began serving, others got involved and the snowball began to build. Nearly 5 years later ACTS has been able to help hundreds of families, organizations, and communities by sharing the God-given talents and skills volunteers have with those who need a hand. We hope you'll consider joining us on an upcoming service opportunity and be a part of what God is doing in central Iowa.
