Boot Camp

The vision of Beautiful Feet is to see disciples of Jesus making disciples of Jesus among all unreached and neglected people groups. We want to see movements of people giving their lives to Jesus; communities transformed; to see glimpses of God’s Kingdom coming, God’s will being done here on earth just as it is in heaven.

 

Our unchanging mission is to follow Jesus to unreached and neglected people groups, cooperating with churches, mobilization organizations, and other missionary agencies to mobilize, train, and send long-term, catalytic missionary teams to start disciple-making/church-planting movements. Crossing cultures as a disciple of Jesus calls us to a deeper awareness of God’s love for all peoples and their cultures. Training is essential to this mission.

Pioneering missions training for over 25 years

Wise missionaries prepare spiritually and practically for the challenges of living and serving overseas. BFBC is designed to inform students about the challenges that missionaries face and equip them with the practical skills needed to thrive on the mission field. Those who train with BFBC go to live and serve in the darkest parts of the planet, incorporating a wide variety of ministry and service techniques helping to establish communities of the King.

 

Live and learn among the people

Missionary candidates begin their training with our three-week intensive Beautiful Feet Boot Camp (BFBC) in Oklahoma City. BFBC is focused on a relational approach to integrating the skills needed to thrive during their first term of two to three years. Upon successful completion of BFBC, graduates head home to finish raising financial and prayer support. Graduates will be paired with a support raising coach to help them through this process. Once funded, graduates will join one of Beautiful Feet’s existing overseas teams or partners in ministry for their first term. During their first term, BFBC graduates are paired with coaches (Pastoral Care, Language Learning, Strategy, and Business as Mission, if applicable) who are committed to helping them thrive.

 

Build a solid foundation

Classes challenge students’ assumptions so that their foundation and motivation are based solely on Jesus, encouraging intimacy with the One calling us to go. It is only through deep relationship with Christ that long-term work among unreached and neglected peoples can be sustained.

 

Learn from those who have gone before

Students learn from a variety of instructors who have significant and ongoing experience in the field of missions. BFBC classes are interactive and designed to teach students about intimacy with Jesus, church planting, language acquisition, cultural adaptation, community development, contextualization of the Gospel, and team dynamics. Students are prepared to adjust to a new culture, build strong relationships with strangers and to work together to see the Kingdom of Heaven fill the Earth.

 

Beautiful Feet Boot Camp graduates

BFBC is designed to prepare students for long-term service (more than two years). Upon successful completion of the first term, graduates are invited to join an existing team or to begin forming one of their own.

 

Let the little children come

When God invites parents into mission work, He is inviting the whole family. BFBC has been a pioneer in missionary kid training from its inception. Children receive the same preparation as their parents on an age-appropriate level. Children are readied to face the unique challenges of life overseas and begin developing the same practical skills as their parents (serving the poor, interacting with those different from them, living in community, etc.) The goal is to help children grow in excitement about their family’s new adventure by helping them feel like a real part of the team.
