In light of Redeemer's recent announcement about the future of Act Five, we want to offer context and hopes for Act Five as a program, community and organization moving forward.

What is it you plan on doing with your one wild and precious life? Let us offer a glimpse of how God seems to be leading our collective life with Act Five.

Join us in some highlights and memories of Act Five Year Two

May God continue to prepare the way for these 16 young adults, and may they be gifts for others who have not experienced anything close to the fullness of life found at 75 Blake St this past year.

May I Lord - may I address each sunrise and each sunset of this coming chapter with praises to Your name, of Your love, of Your patience, of Your heart, and of Your goodness.

The unpredictability and restrictions of the past year have been a gift for Act Five because they have allowed us to hold fast to who we are called to be: waiting on the Lord in the face of circumstances we could not predict nor control.

"In a season unlike anything we have experienced before, my hope is that Act Five represents a community seeking to live faithfully in this moment."

"With gratitude to be able to run our program  - and with some creative uses of space, travel adjustments, face masks and plenty of hand sanitizer - we head toward September humbly and confidently."

As a guest post, read some profound reflections from Sarah Bosch as she witnessed what God did in the life of her daughter through Act Five.

Is a year with Act Five really worth the investment? Not only do staff and students of Act Five think so, but these parents answer with a resounding "YES!"

Whether an educator, pastor, mentor or otherwise, the current moment requires critical conversations around the discipleship of our young adults.
