SCHOOL OF FRONTIER MISSIONS

” Blessed to be a blessing to the Nations “

This course is part of the College of Christian Ministries from the University of the Nations Colleges and Centres.

COURSE CODE: TBC

TYPE: FLW COURSE
(Full learning weeks)

UOFN CREDITS: 12 CREDITS

PREREQUISITE: YWAM-DTS

The SOFM exists to equip and release those who have a calling from God for long term ministry among unreached people groups in the West and beyond. This family friendly school will prepare you to move forward with vision and in faith for the impossible while providing practical opportunities to put your training and faith into practice. In the past, England has been known for being a sending nation. We believe God wants to reignite its spiritual and missional heritage and you can be part of it.  

Abraham was called by God to leave his home and go to a foreign land. His faith filled obedience ushered in generations of future Jesus followers who have said yes to fulfil this global mandate; you are blessed to be a blessing to the nations. 

 Are you willing to respond to God’s call and go to the nations still waiting to hear of His blessing? 

  

LECTURE    

 Experienced missionary teachers will demonstrate how to more effectively reach those people groups God has or will put on your heart. Whether you are called to pioneer new YWAM teams or join existing locations, this school will prepare you to thrive spiritually and personally while equipping you with practical tools for fruitful ministry. 

A unique aspect of this course is the Discipleship Making Movements Module which will run alongside the core training phase and the inclusion of bibleless language sessions. Both are vital tools for fulfilling the great commission.

Our learning week will be a mix of classroom learning, ministry times, self-led learning and research, as well as continuing to form good spiritual disciplines and habits. 

 Some of the other areas we will focus on are: 

  • Adapting cross-culturally and language learning

  • Strategic missions led by the Holy Spirit

  • Healthy relationships: team building and team work

  • Support raising and other practicalities of life on the field.

  • Biblical worldview

  • Leadership/pioneering

  • Cross-cultural evangelism 

  • Landscape of Missions; with a particular focus on Islam

  • Discipleship making movements with opportunities to implement in local outreach

  • Spiritual warfare and intercession.

  • Ending bible poverty within bibleless people groups

 

INTERNSHIPS

 Internships are highly encouraged as part of the SOFM. The school leader and staff will give you space to hear from God about where, who and how while providing encouragement and support that will continue through to the end of the internship. If you already feel drawn to a specific location or people group then please let us know. 

 We will be offering two options:

 A two-month internship for those who want to explore a location and see what team could be a good fit before going long term.

 A two-year internship for those who are ready to be launched into full-time missions. This will include the option of joining a pioneering team focused on the unreached Muslim people groups in Europe based in Leeds, England. Yes, frontier missions are on our doorstep!
