VMC Pre-Training Tasks

To begin your training experience with Adventist Frontier Missions, you will need to submit a few documents to our training director. Once these forms are submitted, your registration process can proceed.

First Step: Bible Knowledge Inventory

Please complete the AFM Bible Knowledge Inventory There are 101 questions in the inventory and the entire inventory must be completed in one sitting. Please set aside adequate time to complete the exercise. You will be asked for a password which will be supplied to you by the Training director. The inventory will be scored upon completion and a copy of the results will be sent to you after they have been reviewed by the training department. Results will be used to help you to sharpen the focus of your Bible reading and study as you prepare for mission service.

Second Step: Complete Training Prerequisites

At orientation you were given several assignments that are to be completed before you come to training. These training tasks are outlined here in the recommended order of priority by class.

There are several forms you will be asked to fill out. You only need to submit one response per family.

Third Step: Register for Training and Arrange for Child Care (if applicable)

This Form is for Volunteer Missionary Candidates (VMC) to register for the Summer Institute of Frontier Missions (SIFM) training, request housing, sign liability waver and agree to AFM code of conduct.

Watch As You Have Time
