We are a global collective of disciple-makers. We reach for the unreached by equipping and empowering young adults for a lifetime of effective ministry while pursuing disciple making movements among the lost. We want to see a generation of young adults catalyzing spiritual transformation to the ends of the earth.
What We Do
Big PictureIMPROVE, INNOVATE, and INCREASE Great Commission activity until all have heard.
Core StrategyWe come alongside the Church and non-profits with initiatives that enhance overall efforts in reaching for the unreached. We primarily accomplish this by multiplying disciple-making teams focused on reproducible discipleship among the unreached and sending individuals out on mission to where the need is greatest to use their gifts, skills, and abilities for maximum Kingdom impact.
Our MissionReach for the unreached by equipping and empowering young adults for a lifetime of effective ministry while pursuing disciple making movements among the lost.
Our VisionA generation of young adults catalyzing spiritual transformation to the ends of the earth.
Among the Church
Among the Unreached
Stateside and OverseasStateside we work with refugees from places like Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Burma, and Bhutan. We also work with international students from places like Saudi Arabia, Russia, China and India.
Reach for the UnreachedThis is our motto. In whatever your hands find to do, consider how to leverage those things for the Kingdom of God where He’s yet to be known. We see the Biblical narrative as one of God’s glory among all nations. However, we are burdened with the reality of 42% of the world remains unreached by the Gospel. Therefore, we simply call people to reach for the unreached in the unique way that God designed them for His mission. Maybe you are called as a missionary to the Middle East or as an accountant to use your financial acumen to support business as missions ventures. In all things reach for the unreached for God’s glory among the nations.
Philosophy of MissionsWe believe that individuals who passionately pursue their purpose while seeking opportunities to spark church planting movements and empower local believers through discipleship are the next frontier for the globalization of the Gospel. One of the main ways this happens is through sustainable vocations. A sustainable vocation is any type of God-honoring work that allows an individual to remain in a location for an appointed season of life while ministering to people in their sphere. We use Discovery Bible Studies as a foundation for ministry in any context where we operate.
Spheres of SocietyThe English word “vocation” comes from a root that means “a call” or “summons”. Vocations manifest in seven distinct categories of work which we call the Spheres of Society. These categories of life exist across the globe and provide an amazing opportunity for Christians to spread the Gospel in unreached places.
Young AdultsWe focus on equipping and empowering young adults for a lifetime of effective ministry. We have seen God use young adults in mighty ways throughout history ranging from the first disciples of Jesus to events like the student volunteer movement. However, we see a gap in today’s environment with the church and young adults that we want to help provide solutions for.

Why the Yak
The Forefront Team
Forefront Experience is a 501c3 non-profit organization incorporated under the name “The Global Forefront” in Texas with a board which provides regular oversight. If you would like a copy of our financials please send us a request through our Connect page.
We are operationally co-directed by an Executive Director and Stateside Director located in Dallas Texas. We currently operate in both Dallas and Fayetteville Arkansas where we have multiple Team Directors serving. We intentionally have not listed the names of staff to protect their security when they travel to sensitive areas. This is becoming a major concern in certain parts of the world. If you have any questions at all we are just an email or call away!
How We Relate
How We Started
Forefront Experience was started conceptually in 2012 by a couple of friends in college who saw classmates starting to move overseas and asked “How could we use the things we’re actually good at for missions?” and “How can we have fun while doing it?”. These questions initiated the Forefront movement that started with a group of 10 people moving together in community to live among the unreached. From the pioneering of the initial team and those who followed, Forefront Experience was brought to life. Although a life on mission will not be an easy one, we can’t surrender a fight for joy in community using the things that give us life to reach the most difficult places.
