Start with our FREE Module before you fill out an application or pay anything!

No matter which program option you are leaning towards, we want you to start by enrolling in our free module. You’ll be able to try out the platform, interact with staff, and ask any questions you may have before paying for the entire program.

Self-Study Option

The online MTS self-study option is for those students that want to access our resources, content, and curriculum to use the material for their own personal growth. The self-study option is very hands off and doesn’t include a facilitator, people reviewing your assignments, or a certificate. This is our most cost effective option, but offers no interaction with GFM staff, facilitators, and mentors. This option is basically purchasing access to the content of a module for a period of 180 days.

Cost Per Module: $30

Some of the materials that have been developed for this course have been generously donated by wonderful authors, speakers, and publishers knowing that this program is specifically designed to raise up missionaries that are going to be serving among unreached people groups.
