TRIAD equips individuals called to serve in the hardest to reach places in a concealed location among the unreached. Seasoned TRIAD staff train with methods used to penetrate barriers and spearhead Gospel access platforms among the unreached.
Equipping frontline workers to glorify Christ among the hardest to reach places and peoples.
- Apply His word
- Obedience to His will
- Fruitful in His work
Our training is unique – it occurs embedded among the unreached, by those who have served in frontier missions, to facilitate a Bible-saturated and practical experience. The design is holistic, systematic, and transferable to the frontlines. Students will quickly and effectively gain a foundation to witness, experience lives transformed by Christ, understand the culture, and know how to learn a language.

When does the training occur?
EQUIP starts in Mid-August and runs through Mid-May.
What are the prerequisites?
Participants must be at least 18 years old and have successfully completed both AWAKEN and EMPOWER. In addition, we are looking for people who are already committed to long-term pioneer church planting among an unreached people group. Students need to have a strong biblical foundation; spiritual, relational, emotional, and moral maturity; and the physical stamina to be able to thrive in the rigors of cross-cultural living. They need to be involved in their local church and approved by their local church as a mission candidate in training. They also need to have manageable debt.
How many students can go through the training at one time?
To facilitate an intimate training, we typically accept 50 to 70 students.
Are my children able to join us?
Yes, children are able to join and families with children are encouraged to apply. In addition, the facilities and training anticipate and accommodate families.
What are the costs?
Costs depend on your personal situation (individual, married, family). Students will be responsible for their costs, and we encourage support raising through your local church.
Are donations to this program tax deductible for students?
TRIAD is unable to provide a donation receipt for students.
What is covered in the costs?
Room and board, tuition, and training materials.
Do we have to be affiliated with a ‘sending organization’?
No, students do not have to be affiliated with a ‘sending organization.’ Our program will help to equip you in developing the kinds of questions and assessment tools you’ll need to learn the essentials and vital components of a ‘sending organization.’ Your local church, however, plays a key role in sending you as a long-term missionary. A healthy relationship with your sending church and other donors on your support team is critical to your longevity on the field.
Is TRIAD affiliated with a denomination?
TRIAD is a non-denominational program.
What are TRIAD’s beliefs?
When will I know my field assignment?
TRIAD deploys cross-cultural workers to the field, but there is no guarantee of field deployment through TRIAD upon graduation of the program. We partner with many sending organizations focused on unreached people groups and will help to foster relationships with those organizations for potential field assignments.
