We are committed to training, coaching, and sending leaders to plant and strengthen churches in Oklahoma and around the world.

Towards this end, Frontline has two residency programs to invest in and develop leaders for this vision: 1) Church Planting Residency, and 2) Minority Pastoral Residency

CHURCH PLANTING RESIDENCY

Vision

The Frontline Church Planting Residency is a 10-month finishing school built to identify, train, develop, and deploy future church planters to multiply healthy, Gospel-centered churches.

We strongly believe church planting is one of the primary God-given avenues for evangelism, discipleship, and kingdom-advancement in our world. Our city, our state, and our world need more healthy, gospel-centered churches, engaging their towns, cities, and neighborhoods on mission. At Frontline, we are committed to multiplying gospel communities, and one of the ways we do this is through planting new churches and supporting church planters as they begin new works.

Approach

Our residency is built around of five modules, covering: Vision & Personal Leadership, Strategy & Strategic Leadership, Foundations & Pastoral Leadership, Maturation & Organizational Leadership, & Multiplication & Missional Leadership.

The residency includes assessment, training, coaching, ministry experience, and assigned readings & projects in a highly relational and hands on environment.

Who Should Apply?

We are looking for multiplying leaders who demonstrate a call and desire to advance the gospel as church planters, and are within 18 months of planting. The ideal candidate is someone who has a rich and vibrant relationship with Jesus, is a man of high character, is humble and teachable, and has a proven track record of ministry, leadership, and multiplication in the context of a local church. Candidates should also align with the doctrine, vision, and values of Frontline Church.

MINORITY PASTORAL RESIDENCY

Vision

The Frontline Minority Pastoral Residency is a 2-year developmental program, focused on equipping and sending out ethnic minority leaders for broad kingdom impact in local churches for the sake of the Gospel.

Because of the Gospel, we desperately want to see our church and other churches grow as beautiful expressions of racial and ethnic diversity, living in the unity of the Gospel as a prophetic image to our cities of what the Gospel does to unify across lines that culture says should divide us. We have been praying that God would help us to be part of a multi-ethnic movement of the gospel in our city, that would lead to cultural transformation as men and women of all races are reconciled to God and one another.

Approach

We desire to serve, equip, train, and coach high capacity minority leaders of deep character, who are called to pastoral ministry, in the areas of self-awareness, leadership, theology, and pastoral ministry. This happens through hands on ministry experience, ongoing assessment, leadership coaching, theological formation, and pastoral development all in a tight relational context.

It is our desire to shape both the mind and the heart of our residents through valuable experience in practical ministry, development of a strong theological vision, and deepening of character within a relational brotherhood.

Who Should Apply?

We are looking for young, minority leaders who demonstrate a call and desire to advance the gospel as pastors or church planters. The ideal candidate is someone who has a rich and vibrant relationship with Jesus, is a man of high character, is humble and teachable, and has a proven track record of ministry faithfulness in the context of a local church. Candidates should also align with the doctrine, vision, and values of Frontline Church.
