Active Christians Today (ACT) is a campus ministry on the campuses of Bowling Green State University and The University of Toledo. Since the early 1970's when we were founded until today, we have been focused on bringing the message of Jesus to BGSU and UT. We are a non-denominational Christian community that encourages and challenges students to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ. We have weekly worship services, bible studies, small groups meetings, retreats, cookouts and parties, ministry teams, mission trips, as well as other events throughout the year.
ACT provides secure online donations ("e-giving"). Please read an overview and/or make a donation here.

Pack the Prout! It's 8 PM Wednesday night at Prout Chapel on the Bowling Green State University campus. We are celebrating the ministry of Campus Pastor Dave Warner and Vicki Warner. When Dave started over 20 years ago the first ACT BG meeting had very few students involved. So, we hope to end his ministry by packing Prout Chapel. Show your support and help us make it happen! Rides for students at ACT UT will be available from the ACT UT campus house at 7 PM for worship at 8 PM in Bowling Green (please RSVP in advance). Following worship there will be a takeover of the Waffle House in BG. Let's Pack the Prout!
The ACT BG and UT men gathered last Saturday to prepare a dinner for the ACT ladies. The "Chivalry Dinner" included everything from the ambiance of the room, table settings, menu, music and preparing and cooking the dinner. The Chivalry Dinner was a way to show our appreciation for the ladies of ACT. It was a wonderful night of great food, fellowship, laughter and fun.
It was truly an inspiring week serving with the ACT BG / UT mission team in and around West Palm Beach, Florida. It was a busy week: serving in a soup kitchen, participating in a children's after school program and helping in a huge food distribution project sounds like a lot but there was so much more. The team also led in worship on Sunday, cleaned out a warehouse, directed a youth program on Friday and found more unusual places for ministry including an evening festival in West Palm Beach. God blessed in amazing ways and we thank everyone for their support of ACT! Watch this video to get an idea of all that happened from the student's perspective.
