Road to the Field

Learn the steps involved in getting to the field.


Road to the Field

Navigating the road to the field can be tricky. But you don’t have to do it alone.

That’s where Frontiers can help. Our resources, training, and personal coaches will equip you to thrive in long-term missions and be part of what God is doing in the Muslim world.

Let’s get started!

Take the First Step

The no-obligation First Step Form takes about 15 minutes and lets us know you’re interested in learning more about long-term missions and Frontiers. We’ll get in touch, answer your questions, and help you explore your opportunities. If you want to move forward, we’ll connect you with a Mobilization Coach.

Mobilization Coaching

One of our experienced Mobilization Coaches will provide ongoing encouragement, training, and resources to help you begin preparing for field-readiness in areas like spiritual health, relational dynamics, ministry experience, finances, and more.

Long-Term Application

When you’re ready to take the next step, you’ll fill out a
Long-Term Application (LTA) . Plan to spend three to four hours completing this
detailed application. Once your LTA is approved, you’ll be assigned a Field
Prep Coach.

Field Prep Coaching

Your Field Prep Coach will walk with you from the LTA until you launch to the field, helping you navigate Candidate School and continue your preparation to thrive wherever God is calling you.

Candidate School

Candidate School is offered each year in February, June, and October. During this two-week intensive training, you’ll discover key tools for abiding in Christ, ministering to Muslims, and working as a team. You’ll also meet with coaches to evaluate what ongoing personal development may benefit you. 

Choose a Team

Each Team Leader has a Memorandum of Understanding and Vision Strategy Paper for the ministry they are doing among their people group and location. You will need to find out which team fits your needs best when reviewing team options. Sometimes, the Team Leader would require you to go out on a vision trip to see how well you might fit into their team.

Final Preparations

Your Field Prep Coach will help you set and meet certain milestones as you prepare to leave. These include gathering prayer partners, raising financial support, and planning for your landing, so that you’re ready to launch.


Join your new team at the edges of God’s Kingdom, and be part of what He’s doing, changing hearts and lives in the Muslim world!
