FX: Minneapolis 2016

October 13-15, 2016, at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, MN.

What Is FX?

Over 2 billion people have no access to the Gospel, and most of them can’t be reached by those with “missionary” stamped in their visa. Frontline Missions International has developed a training and orientation program that will 1) help men and women begin to explore ways in which they can serve Christ in restricted-access countries and 2) serve local churches that are serious about addressing the Unfinished Task of taking the Gospel to people who have yet to hear.

The Frontline Experience (FX) conferences help answer some key questions: How will they be reached? Why should I go? How do I get there?

Sessions are taught by experienced pioneer missionaries, authors, educators, and advocates with specialties in areas such as culture, linguistics, and cross-cultural engagement.
