Frontline Traning Program Graduation
Students were blessed throughout the last Frontline Training Program (FTP) and graduation. The programs aim is to impart a passion for evangelism and equip students with training that will make them more effective in reaching out to help others find their way back to God.
The students live in community for three months and receive both formal and informal instruction. Two modules are built into the program with the intent that graduating students will qualify to apprentice within local churches or other ministries.
At our last graduation the students arrived at Recognition Night having been stretched, challenged and encouraged in applying their passion and gifting as they follow Jesus. Each one left their home and lived in a team environment by faith. The faithfulness of those who recognize the value of this training provided the means for these students to be involved. As little as $250 can provide the way for one to receive this type of training -- a small investment for a huge return. Many of the students from this and previous schools are actively involved within Frontline ministries, serving in the churches and outreach ministries. Others have returned to their home churches to serve the church and community where they live.
What Symbolizes Us?
We adopted the symbol of an arrow to represent the qualities that need to be combined in each of us to qualify as leaders. The tip of the arrow represents our skill and gift. The shaft of the arrow represents the character needed. Properly, it is the longest portion of the arrow. The fletch (or the tail) represents the need to have sensitivity to the Holy Spirit.
An example of this sensitivity was seen as the students ministered in the home of a life group member. The woman who lived there had been experiencing some difficult health issues. As we joined to pray over her by laying our hands on her and inviting God to heal, there was an obvious manifestation of the presence and power of God. Awit herself (One of the students) was moved to tears and deeply impacted. A few weeks later Awit had opportunity to proclaim the Gospel in an outreach event in Nueva Ecija. The power and presence of the Lord attended her preaching and many came to know the Lord that night! Paul, in his writings, said this, “my preaching did not come with enticing words of man’s wisdom but in demonstration of the Spirit and the power of God”. Awit has begun to cultivate this sensitivity to her leadership qualifications and we believe that God will greatly use her in the days ahead.
A New FTP Session
The next FTP training is set to begin this month under the leadership of Mike Gordon and Ernesto Gonzales. This program is growing and we believe that part of the answer of the need for leaders for the future lies in the success of this program.
