SOFM (School Of Frontier Missions): Harpenden, England
September 20 @ 8:00 am - December 15 @ 5:00 pm
The SOFM exists to equip and release those who have a calling from God for long term ministry among unreached people groups in the West and beyond. This family friendly school will prepare you to move forward with vision and in faith for the impossible while providing practical opportunities to put your training and faith into practice. In the past, England has been known for being a sending nation. We believe God wants to reignite its spiritual and missional heritage and you can be part of it.
Abraham was called by God to leave his home and go to a foreign land. His faith filled obedience ushered in generations of future Jesus followers who have said yes to fulfil this global mandate; you are blessed to be a blessing to the nations.
Are you willing to respond to God’s call and go to the nations still waiting to hear of His blessing?
Some of the other areas we will focus on are:
Adapting cross-culturally and language learning
Strategic missions led by the Holy Spirit
Healthy relationships: team building and team work
Support raising and other practicalities of life on the field.
Landscape of Missions; with a particular focus on Islam
Discipleship making movements with opportunities to implement in local outreach
Spiritual warfare and intercession.
Ending bible poverty within bibleless people groups
Field Internships are highly encouraged as part of the SOFM. The school leader and staff will give you space to hear from God about where, who and how while providing encouragement and support that will continue through to the end of the internship. If you already feel drawn to a specific location or people group then please let us know.
We will be offering two options:
A two-month internship for those who want to explore a location and see what team could be a good fit before going long term.
A two-year internship for those who are ready to be launched into full-time missions. This will include the option of joining a pioneering team focused on the unreached Muslim people groups in Europe based in Leeds, England. Yes, frontier missions are on our doorstep!
