FRONTIER is more than just a training year. It is a preparation for participants to move into an exciting, meaningful, transformative and impacting ministry within the local church.
The opportunities are broad. For example, we have a church planting ministry at Albury which participants can become part of, growing to take on the next stage of planting a new church out of the original church plant. We have a local community that is keen to have someone help them re-pot their church into a growing missional ministry. There are twelve other "sending churches" across the LCA & LCNZ who are at various stages of development, all of whom will be looking for a FRONTIER graduate to join them and provide leadership for their church planting ministry. Then we have other congregations, who are keen to move into a new church planting type ministry, who are looking for individuals who understand and can lead them in this path.
Not all of these are paid ministries. In fact, most church planting ministries start out as "tent-maker" type ministries. At FRONTIER we will teach you how to fund this "tent-maker" approach. We will also teach you how to do ministry in an intentional and specific way, that enables you to have an impact beyond your wildest imagination as the Gospel collides with those who have never heard it.
We'd love to see couples, even families, keen to take up this sort of ministry, join FRONTIER. Your future is wide open, and the opportunities amazing. All it takes is a willingness to set aside a year so God can transform you life and send you into the harvest for Him.
