During this one year experience an overall focus of missions within the 'Mission of God' will be taught as the students will complete the FTLT - Mission Leadership Training School (MLTS) as the core of their training.
Students will at the completion of their theory training be send to various Southern African countries for three months. Their practical involvement will depend on information received from research done throughout the year.
The motivation for such an unique focus is to develop a missional leader with a kingdom mentality of empowerment. Someone who has the ability of walking into any geographical area in the world, assess the community needs, whether spiritual or physical, identify the existing Entities of Change, if any, and strategically produce an unification plan around a common mission vision. This person will practically exercise a leadership style of empowerment, strengthening existing entities in what they are already doing; empowering them to be more effective in their daily responsibilities.
Because of the intensity of such a focus, we have limited our participation for 2014 to just 10 students. Careful consideration will be made to the ratio of International students vs National Students, as well as between men and women, and those coming from developed environments and those from disadvantage communities. The broader the spectrum of participants, the greater the exposure and understanding of realities globally. Because of the uniqueness of the school, FTLT anticipates that it will not be able to accept all who have applied.
Once you have prayed and feel that the Lord may want you to be part of the school, you should download and complete the relevant Application form below (or complete the online application form). You then send the application form together with its appropriate reference forms to the registrar of the school. If your application has been successfully considered you will be expected to confirm your final participation in the school by signing a document of understanding and making a deposit payment.
The decision of the Leadership of FTLT is final and no further dialogue will be entered into after the school has reached its maximum number of candidates for the year.

PRACTICAL & PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES
FTLT aims to train missional leaders that are ready and equipped for an often harsh and challenging mission environment. Moderate to intense physical exercise forms an important part of the training. Bush phase and the cross border outreaches often require students to travel across challenging terrain and through harsh environments and have calculated physical risks associated with them. (As do all travel activities.)Students are informed to be aware of these risks and challenges that await them. While you do not need to be super fit to attend FTLT a general fitness level is required. NB: Being unable to participate in all physical activities does not automatically exclude you from attending FTLT but FTLT leadership should be informed of potential physical limitations.
It is vital that you understand the importance of having your finances in order before you begin your studies at the FTLT training school.
The school fees will be R42 000 / US$6 500 per person, per annum. (R2 000 / US$200 on approval.)
