The School of Frontier Missions (SOFM) was pioneered in Samoa in 2009 to fulfill the vision of a new wave of Samoan Missionaries being sent from Samoa to the unreached.

The major focus of the SOFM is to enable people to be effective in presenting and building the Kingdom of God within a cross-cultural context. This school begins in the first month with lectures and practical application occurring alternately and ending with a cross-cultural outreach. A recent addition to the course is training in biogas and water technologies.


Our next school will be starting September 7th 2020.

There is also a 1-year internship/outreach required.

  2. Dear YWAM Samoa Staff,

    I hope this message finds you well, I’m a student at the University of Washington hoping to learn more about your work. I am completing a thesis for our research program at the Jackson School of International Studies in Seattle. My research aims to understand the movements toward frontier missions, mercy ministries, and spirit-led decision making in the field of Christian missions.

    I’ve been heavily focussing on YWAM through this research project and have gotten the pleasure of hearing many testimonies of reconciliation/redeeming theology within the organization’s global reach. People I’ve spoken with have encouraged me to get in touch with your specific ministry to hear more about your work and mission statement.

    I would love to learn more about the work you do, especially regarding that of your School of Frontier Missions If you are willing to give me an hour or so of your time, or know of any students who’d be willing, I’d be very grateful to understand your mission in more depth as it seems to be joining a global movement toward reconciliation in the missions field.

    Please let me know your thoughts and I look forward to hearing from you.

  3. Hi, will your Frontier Missions School still be running this year?
