Yak Attack

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 Picture
IMPROVE, INNOVATE, and INCREASE Great Commission activity until all have heard.

Core Strategy
We 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 Mission
Reach for the unreached by equipping and empowering young adults for a lifetime of effective ministry while pursuing disciple making movements among the lost.

Our Vision
A generation of young adults catalyzing spiritual transformation to the ends of the earth.
What We Do
Among the Church
  • Mobilization: Multiply the number of believers acting as world Christians by praying, supporting, serving and going to the unreached.
  • Equipping: Develop disciple-makers who can cross barriers of culture to make reproducing disciples and set them out on a trajectory of stewarding their whole life for the glory of God.
  • Among the Unreached
  • Outreach: Find spiritually hungry people among unreached populations and lead them to discover the God of the Bible.
  • Discipleship: Train those who come to faith as leaders to catalyze disciple making movements among the rest of their people group.
  • Men Overseas
    Stateside and Overseas
    Stateside 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.

  • Many of these locations are challenging for Christian missionaries to enter, but God is bringing these people to our doorstep. Although many of us are called to go overseas we also see God moving people to the US and want to respond appropriately to the opportunity.
  • International students specifically are a strategic ministry focus. 40% of the world’s 220 Heads of State once studied in the US. However, only 10% of international students are reached by ministries during their stay in the United States. Source
  • Overseas we serve as a bridge to help young adults find ways to use their vocations and skills in locations that are hard to access as Christians.

  • With the focus on vocation we are able to direct people towards a legitimate way of extending the Kingdom of God into some of the darkest places.
  • We help accomplish this by providing vision trips, distance coaching and assembling launch teams of believers who want to go overseas together.

    Our Distinctives

    Reach for the Unreached
    This 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 Missions
    We 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 Society

    Spheres of Society
    The 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.
  • 42% of the world remains unreached with the Gospel
  • 0% of the world is unreached by the Spheres of Society.
  • God’s plan for the redemption of the world will be accomplished through the individual callings (or vocations) of Christ followers around the world. We believe that God has placed a specific call on the life of every believer and wants to use our vocations for His glory among the nations.

    Young Adults
    We 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.


    The Challenge:

  • 59% of Millennials (born between 1977-1997) who grow up in the church leave the church in the first decade of adult life. Source
  • 87% of evangelicals find it hard to have a conversation with a Muslim. Source
  • Only 3% of foreign missionaries work among the unreached. Source
  • 91% of Millennials expect to stay in a job for less than three years. Source
  • If you add those statistics up, we are not getting many young adults who are prepared to share the Gospel to the most needed places in the world as missionaries for very long periods of time. At Forefront Experience we strive to provide innovative solutions for young adults like our Missional Learning Teams.
    Dedication to Purpose
    Our passions, spiritual giftings, learned skills/education, life experiences, profession, personality, and demographic all contribute to an understanding of our specific calling. Each area reveals part of who God has made us to be and how we are to go about finding and fulfilling that calling. We must carefully examine these 6 areas of our lives to understand the mosaic of life that God has walked us through in pursuit of our part in this journey.

    EVERYTHING is pointing us to our purpose in Christ!

    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
    church copy
    We work alongside churches to provide solutions for their members to get involved in reaching for the unreached within their cities. All our staff and team members belong to local gatherings of believers walking out obedience to the Scriptures in Biblical community.
    mission-agencies
    We love connecting with other non-profit and mission organizations doing a variety of global and local activities. We work with many like-minded groups in each of our locations. If you’d like to explore partnership in some capacity give us a shout!
    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.
