The Lecture Phase

Go on an adventure with God, be challenged in your relationship with Him and bring the message of hope to the hard to reach places

The Frontline Discipleship Training School is focused on knowing God and making Him known. Helping you to meet God as your loving Father. Encouraging you to explore your passions and talents. Preparing you to live a life that will impact this world with the reality of an adventurous God.

It includes not only classroom lectures, but regular times of worship and prayer, discussion times, one-on-one discipleship, hands-on serving, and a lot of fun community life!

There will also be topics on how to be effective on outreach, workbooks, reports and projects that will stretch our hearts and minds. We will also build a team together by doing physical training and trekking - this also helps prepare us for outreach.

What you'll experience during the lecture phase.

Personal Time with God

There will be a lot of time and opportunity to spend personal time with God during the Discipleship Training School. Many students have grown in their commitment to God during these times. You will also be coached by staff and teachers in what it means to pursue God with a whole heart as well as receive practical tips on what works and what doesn't. Lots of involvement in worship, prayer, and discussion with peers and staff will also happen.

Camping Trips and Trekking through Australian Bush

As the Frontline Discipleship Training School, we focus on the hard-to-reach places (and the Australian bush is a great place to prepare us for what outreach will be like). This means we like to get out into the bush when we can and rough it up for a bit. There are some beautifully natural places around Perth and in the surrounding areas. We like to explore these and make the most of it.

One-on-one Discipleship

We are committed to seeing you grow in your understanding of who God is, to help bring you to your full potential and seeing you continually develop your relationships with God and people. You will meet with a trusted staff member every week who will come alongside you, listen to you, and help you process through any questions or challenges you may face.

Outreach Phase

Sharing God's heart for the nations by taking His message of love to the hard to reach places in the world

On outreach, you get to be part of God's invitation to go with Him into the world and share the Good News (Mark 16:15). And the news is good because we don't just talk, we show people God's love in practical ways, helping to meet both their physical needs (food, clean water, healthcare) and spiritual (Jesus).

You'll get to experience life in a different culture, language, and setting. You'll see how God loves the nations of the earth and what is happening in missions worldwide. You will be able to help deeply impact the lives of individuals that you will come across and see them come alive with the light of Jesus. Remember, transformation starts with the individual.

Mission experiences during the outreach phase.

Sharing Jesus

Every person has the right to hear the life-saving message of Jesus and decide for themselves if they'll believe in Him. Whether they're in a village, the ghetto, a university, or a rehab centre, we'll get to meet them, share with them, pray for them, and let them know God's love.

Active Love

Show people practical love and care for them by demonstrating many things such as washing hands, teaching people how to construct simple water filters, make oral rehydration solution (this literally saves babies' lives), and testing people's eyesight and giving out glasses. These are just some examples!

"Go and Make Disciples..."

One of the biggest needs in the church today is discipleship. Having just completed 12 intense weeks of lecture phase, you will have much to share, and there are many people who are hungry to learn. One of the greatest privileges of outreach is getting to share in churches, the streets, hospitals, people's homes, basically wherever people meet, teaching them to know God more, so they can then share with others!
