Advanced Mission Training

Welcome to Advanced Mission Training. AMT is a program that will propel you into the mission fields of the neglected tribes of the earth.

Whether your calling is Africa, South America, Asia or beyond, we will train you to effectively and strategically reach different ethnic tribes with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. AMT is a starting block that will forward your journey to fulfill God’s missionary dream for your life.

You will be trained in 17 subjects that are a mixture between classroom learning and practical field exercises. For three months you will live at our Rapid 14 logistical base located at Victoria Falls, Zambia. You will spend time ministering in remote villages that have rarely been visited since the days that Dr. David Livingstone was exploring Africa to preach the Gospel and abolish the slave trade. You will be part of a team of 20 people who are of like mind and faith and who are all there to reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You will experience a unique and challenging missionary training course that will prepare you to handle any road…any load…any time. Graduates of AMT have the opportunity to apply for internships within one of Overland Missions’ departments. AMT is the gateway to enter into full time missionary service with Overland Missions. To become a student, visit the FAQ page to learn how to apply. Once you apply, a team leader will contact you with more information on next steps. The process will include a more comprehensive application, interview, pastoral reference and orientation packet. If selected for AMT, you will soon see what it takes to reach the neglected people of the earth with the Gospel of Jesus Christ in this generation.

This will change your life

But don’t take our word for it

“My new-found confidence in who I am in Christ has ignited something in me that is no longer afraid to speak, but of remaining quiet instead. I’m now eager to see how God wants to fully use me in my missions, and every other area of my life. I know this is just the beginning.”

Elyse, May 2012 AMT Graduate

“God moved in huge ways and did immeasurably more than any of us could have imagined. That is such a beautiful thing; God will always do immeasurably more than we can imagine.”

Chris, May 2013 AMT Graduate

“I feel like I got a glimpse of what Jesus meant when he said “My meat is to do the will of Him who sent me.” It was truly refreshing to get to pour out from what God has poured into me. I never get tired of telling people about Jesus and his love for us.”

– Bethany, September 2011 AMT Graduate

“AMT has been a life changing experience that has opened my eyes to see God in everything I do. It is helping me build my character in Christ to effectively share the Gospel with everyone I meet. AMT teaches you true servant hood. It also pushes you to the test to see what you are really made of and that is Jesus!”

– Jeremy, May 2011 AMT Graduate
