FRONTIER isn't just about learning how to do mission, it is hands on, in the trenches, elbows deep in practice. And there are a number of amazing opportunities to do this Let me share a few.
St Luke's is about to employ a church planter to establish a new Lutheran community in Albury in 2018. FRONTIER participants will be actively engaged in learning and supporting this exciting venture. When they finish the year, they can return home proudly saying they helped plant a new church.
We also have a rural town which is looking to re-pot their church and grow into a missionally focused church. Again, FRONTIER participants will be offered the chance to support the congregations involved, in re-potting this church. Participants will go away with some insights into the challenges and joy of re-potting a church.
We have several church plants in Albury, Wagga Wagga, and Melbourne, all of which FRONTIER participants will engage and explore how they have done church planting and mission within their context. At the end of the year, participants will have a number of expereinces and encounters they can adapt to their home community.
On top of all this, there are a number of follow-on opportunities for participants who complete FRONTIER with a number of churches looking to plant new communities or re-pot existing ones. They are looking forward to having someone graduate from FRONTIER who can help them become missionally focused communities.
There are so many amazing opportunities, it is literally a smorgasbord. So step up and see what God can do with you in 2018, and join us here at FRONTIER
