WHO can participate in Frontier?
FRONTIER is open to any individual who feels a call to missional ministry, and wishes to grow in a way that empowers that ministry to become a meaningful and valued aspect of their faith journey. There are no age limits on participation as the program is open to all ages. While we are set-up for individual participation, we are open to the possibility of couples doing the program. We encourage couples to discuss their needs and interest with us before applying. We are unable to accommodate families at this time, however, if families are interested in participating, please contact us and discuss your situation with us.
Local Supporting Church
Integral to the FRONTIER program is the involvement of the local church. As a residential program, you will become part of St Luke’s Lutheran Church, Albury, and her sister congregations of St Peter’s, Lavington, and St Andrew’s, Corowa. Here you will be pastorally cared for, supported and encouraged. As FRONTIER is focused on enabling engagement with the unchurched world, these congregations will provide a safe place to retreat and refresh your spirit, faith and energy. Part of this will involve the development of intentional spiritual friendships with congregational members, with whom you will find a listening ear, prayer support, encouragement and a space to connect in a non-threatening, relaxed, friendship of faith.
