Fifteen-week experiential training program we call a Missional Learning Team. Designed to help young adults establish a personal ministry reaching for the unreached while obtaining greater clarity regarding God’s plan for their life.

Who Is The Program For?
Forefront Missional Learning Teams are a great next step after taking the Perspectives class!
How The Program Works
Fall, Spring and Summer Opportunities
Typical Monthly Schedule
Core Components of an MLT
Missional:Outreach: Look for people of peace by meeting needs, engaging in spiritual conversations and inviting internationals to discover the God of the Bible
Discipleship: Facilitate discovery studies with groups of interested non-believers with a focus on multiplication; coach new believers to become lifelong disciple-makers
Learning:Mobilization: Teach more believers to engage with God’s heart for the world by sharing with others what you’re learning in the MLT and inviting them alongside you in ministry Equipping: Develop team members through the cross-cultural ministry training program and invite them to consider joining a long-term disciple-making team after the MLT
Team:Members share the same goals for mission and learning, helping each other accomplish their objectives by providing accountability and peer coaching
All training is engaged through Forefront’s proprietary 8 training methods (See graphic)
Training is facilitated by local Team Directors while the content itself primarily comes from a variety of sources including experienced missionaries, pastors, partner ministry staff, professors, books, articles, podcasts and Forefront staff members.
CostThe basic program cost is $100 per person (or $150 for engaged or married couples) allowing us to provide book resources and two weekend intensive seminars. All Forefront team leaders have raised their own salaries to facilitate the experience and dramatically reduce the cost. Need-based scholarships may be available by request.
ExpectationsAlthough we hope team members will be laboring in their workplace and existing spheres of influence, it is required that the “ministry time” required by this program be spent with internationals in the city. Also, the program is flexible based on life circumstance but also holds participants to a high commitment level. If more than two of the team meetings are missed you will need to meet one on one with your team leaders.
Who We Serve
God has brought many unreached people groups to the United States. Some of the most vulnerable and desperate people on the planet are refugees who eventually get resettled in the states. Most of these places of origin are very unreached yet extremely difficult for missionaries to enter and share the gospel.
Another demographic of unreached people groups who are represented in the US are international students. Many of these students are future leaders of their countries and are some of the most strategic people in the world to share the love of Christ with.
