NEXT is the comprehensive missions training arm of Frontline Missions International. NEXT assists serious Gospel risk-takers as they explore long-term, cross-cultural Gospel ministry through field experiences, mentoring, training, language acquisition, and professional development. $75,000 covers all of the program costs for NEXT 2015. Would you help us train the next generation of global, Gospel-risk takers?
These short-term field opportunities are designed to provide a realistic “next step” for those exploring long-term Gospel ministry in restricted-access countries. Experienced field personnel will mentor and guide participants to a greater self-awareness of strengths and weaknesses. Immersion in practical missionary experiences is important to replace romanticism with the realism involved in working in an environment often hostile to the Gospel. NEXT: Explore will nurture Gospel-centered humility, a deep respect for indigenous brothers and sisters, and encourage bold, Spirit-enabled audacity in the Kingdom’s advance.
While NEXT: Explore sharpens the participants awareness of the skills needed to serve long-term in a country closed to traditional missions, NEXT: Connect provides direction, mentoring, and accountability during this period of professional and vocational development. Participants are encouraged to live on mission in their communities and through their local church and receive encouragement through periodic retreats and video conferences led by FMI staff.
These field opportunities, which range from 1-3 years, are like grad school for cross-cultural Gospel workers. Participants pursue their professions to sharpen their skills, broaden their experience, and develop their leadership under veteran mentors in the field. During NEXT: Advance, participants will have the opportunity to research long-term location, support strategy, and language acquisition with the guidance of FMI staff.

Frontline Missions works to advance the Gospel, forming vibrant, Word-centered, disciple-making churches, especially in those regions of the world that have the least Light. We are driven by the same desire that animated the apostle Paul who said it was always his ambition to preach the Gospel where Christ was not known (Romans 15:20). We pursue this goal by equipping Christians on the frontlines to reach their own people for Christ, by forming strategic partnerships with them, and by developing creative platforms in countries closed to traditional missions.
