The School of Supernatural Frontier Missions (SFM) will give you the opportunity to live in a community where revival is considered normal Christianity.  You’ll be given tools to deepen your faith, grow in leadership, and prepare you for successful missions to the last reached people groups on earth!

This 12-week leadership training school was created to mobilize and equip the body of christ to reach the last frontier of missions. During your school, you will receive weekly teaching and impartation from leaders and missionaries from around the world, and receive leadership experience at our base in a culture where revival is normal! You will encounter God as you attend powerful class-time lectures, conferences, times of worship, and our Ministry to Muslims seminar.

Engage the Unreached

The 10/40 window encompasses North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. It covers only about ⅓ of earth’s total land area, but nearly ⅔ of the world’s people reside here. This is the least evangelized area in the world! Just over 3 billion people in this window are unreached, and they are also some of the poorest nations in the world. The 10/40 window contains the majority of the world’s followers of Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism, as well as many non religious people groups. Join us in engaging this great need and seeing the Kingdom come to earth!


Fulfill the Great Commission

After your lecture phase, you will be prepared to embark on the mission to “make disciples of all nations” and “preach the Gospel to all creation.” After SFM, you will take part in a mandatory two week stateside outreach or the option of two months overseas. These outreaches will help you explore the depths of your heart for the lost and for the countries and people that the Lord is calling you to. Some details of these outreach opportunities can be found below and more will be given to you during your lecture phase. Wherever God may be calling you, this school will give you practical tools for leadership and making an impact for the Kingdom of God.

In YWAM we have a strong culture of depending upon the Lord for provision. We are convinced that if God gives the call, He will provide the means for us to move. We encourage you to pray about how to partner with others in raising support, knowing that it is ultimately up to the Lord to provide the way for the mission He is calling you to!
