Impact Training


For 2019-20 this excellent course is not being run while a review is being under taken. However, as an alternative, we’re recommending that anyone who was planning to apply, attends the Leadership Foundations course instead. You can find out more about foundations by clicking here.

Impact Training is a wonderful year of opportunity. It is a year given over to God to learn, serve and grow. Over the year you will be theologically trained, given opportunities to serve and learn with a local church and grow in your own character and love for God.

Impact training is not for the faint-hearted; you will be stretched, challenged, and given opportunities to do new things. It is a year of sacrifice and faith. It’s also brilliant fun!

You will have eight blocks of training throughout the year, with talks from some of Newfrontiers’ key speakers. There will also be assignments set throughout the year to add to what you have learnt. These are handed in at the end of each training block.

The training blocks will cover three different aspects:

Theological training

This includes key foundational doctrines, Biblical studies and an overview of the Old and New Testaments, the Freedom in Christ course and much more.

Practical equipping

Covering areas such as leadership, evangelism, spiritual gifts and serving the poor.

Ministry and worship

With plenty of opportunity to worship, and pray and prophesy over one


You’ll be placed in a Newfrontiers church, usually within the Commission family, where you’ll have a specific project to get your teeth stuck into. What this project is will depend on your gifts and the church’s needs – our past students have worked on everything from social action to children’s work to worship leading. You’ll also receive one-to-one personal discipleship, hands-on training and support throughout the project. We see mission as being a crucial part of the training year, and many students will be offered a missional opportunity, in addition to their personal project.

What people are saying …

“Impact was the start of my life really, as it was the year that I truly met God and everything changed from thereon in. It was a year full of new challenges and responsibilities, opportunities to lead and to grow a passion for the Church. It was a year where I grew to love the Bible which I didn’t think was possible before. Most of all, I grew in my relationship with Jesus and He has been showing His goodness to me every day since. Do Impact!”

Dan Coe

“My year on Impact was a timely gift from God that I’m forever grateful for! I met some wonderful friends who taught me lots, found much-needed refreshment in the teaching and ministry offered on the course, and absolutely loved taking time out every 6 weeks to purposefully draw close to God, go deeper into His Word, and worship Him. It’s changed my relationship with God and His church for the better, forever.”
