School of Frontier Missions


What if God wanted more than just a short-term missions trip? 


We believe that God is sending out laborers into the field who have burning hearts for His presence and a longing to see the nations encounter Him. Do you feel God stirring your heart to go further with Him in missions? To invest in a nation long-term?

The School of Frontier Missions (SOFM) is designed to prepare you to go the distance. During the three-month Training Phase you will gain more understanding about God’s heart for missions, the differing worldviews and the basics of language learning. You will also learn about the issues of living cross-culturally, how to plant multiplying churches, and how to survive and thrive long term.

Your extended Outreach (normally two years) will either to be to join our Himalayas team or be part of a new pioneering team in East Asia or the Middle East (or another nation you feel called long-term to).

Where will you go?
