ACT3 Network is a mission committed to “empowering leaders and churches for unity in Christ’s mission.” It is led by a board made up of thirteen people. We are Catholic and Protestant, male and female, minister and non-minister, younger and older. One of our fine young board members is Rev. Ian Simkins, pastor of the non-denominational Poplar Creek Church in Bartlett, Illinois. Our videographer sat down with Ian a few months ago and asked him to talk about unity and his vision of the church as one. You will see and hear this vision of John 17:21 here. This is the first of two videos that he gave to us. I think you will find it deeply encouraging and hopeful. The second video will appear tomorrow.
