Task School for Frontier Missions is a 6-month, residential training program based in Atlanta, GA with the goal of producing effective, pioneer missionaries who will serve among unreached people groups. The curriculum incorporates classroom training covering theology, methodology of missions, organization­ specific values, and leadership development. Along with the classroom instruction all students will participate in a minimum of twenty ­four hours of weekly prayer and worship in the International House of Prayer Atlanta prayer room.

There are 2 phases to TASK School:

PHASE 1: Understanding the Missions Movement. PHASE 2: International Outreach


Understanding the Missions Movement

Phase 1 occurs during months 1-3 of the Task School in the context of 24/7 prayer. This time prepares young leaders with the knowledge and skills needed to be effective while working among unreached people groups. Students receive training in prayer, intimacy with God, missions, the forerunner message, evangelism, leadership, poverty, and culture. Also, you will have opportunities to cultivate healthy team dynamics.

Students will also take a course during this time that will equip them to raise a support team to fund their Phase 2 Outreach cost (Estimate $6,000). Students who finish the Task School and decide they’d like to join our international staff long-term will raise a long-term support team for their income.

Students spend 20 hours a week in the prayer room. Some of this is devotional prayer time and some will be focused on intercession. The other 20+ hours are utilized for classroom training, team building, and evangelism.


International Outreach

Phase 2 occurs during months 3-6 of training. The first month is for raising support for a 10 week (2 month) outreach. This outreach location is given during the first three month training period. We focus on sending teams to unreached areas in the 10/40 window. If you are interested to hear where teams have gone in the past please feel free to contact us!
