Formal Training & Curriculum


Our objective is to train young people who will impact their sphere of influence through a focused lifestyle, working with others in a team, expressing Godly character and continuing to develop themselves and those around them into better leaders.

The formal training phase gives students the theoretical foundation they need to reach this goal.

Because of the uniqueness of training at FTLT, we have the privilege to see students empowered, at the end of each year, returning to their local communities with not only knowledge but also the know how to have a radical impact in the transformation of their community.
Nearly every person that has gone through FTLT is serving in some ministry capacity. Some are mobilising their congregations to missions, while others are at university mobilising their friends. Others have gone into the business world supporting missions financially. On a more full-time basis there are graduates currently serving the FTLT in a leadership capacity, some at various other organisations, and also in Malawi, reaching out to the people along the southern part of the lake. Another has started a mission school in Zanzibar, training locals to reach out to their own people.


We follow a broad-based mission and leadership focused curriculum that includes (but is not limited to) the following subjects:

  • Introduction to Missions
  • Spiritual Gifts
  • Biblical Entrepreneurship
  • Leadership Principles
  • Discipleship
  • Finances
  • Overview of Theology
  • Folk Religion
  • Perseverance in Ministry
