Kingdom Channels is excited to announce a new program, ADVANCE1040. ADVANCE1040 is about spreading the Kingdom of Christ in unreached and/or undeveloped areas. The focus of ADVANCE1040 is developing new fields of service, training volunteers, further equipping those laboring in the harvest, and ultimately empowering, commissioning, and supporting those laborers.
ADVANCE1040 is collaborating with existing Kingdom Channels programs such as the LIVE Team and FOCUS Training, as well as working with other Anabaptist related organizations in developing training programs and further deployment of volunteers.
The entry level training of the ADVANCE1040 program is T3. T3 is a crisis response training designed for volunteers serving, or anticipating serving, in disaster response (especially in the Middle East). To qualify for T3 training, applicants must first have served a minimum of 4 weeks in international disaster response, or 6 weeks in international service. Exceptions are considered if the applicant has completed the Kingdom Channels FOCUS training (or equivalent course) or has sufficient experience in public safety such as fire department, EMS etc.
The next T3 is scheduled for May 12 - 18 2019, in Ephrata, Pennsylvania. Fill out the following short form to receive further information; the application is available through the link below.
ADVANCE1040 is currently developing service opportunities in the countries listed below, with various exploratory trips planned (funds pending).
