Frequently Asked Questions
Who can attened Crossfire Masters Commission?
Passionate people willing to accept the mandate that God has placed in their lives for themselves and the people around them. Hungry people that are willing to do whatever it takes to see God move in this world. Masters Commission was created to disciple young men & women of God, typically between the ages of 18-25 (not exclusively). Also, eligibility for acceptance requires a high school diploma, or GED.
What will I get out of Crossfire Masters Commission?
In Crossfire Masters Commission students receive an incredible education through INSTE (Institute of Theology by Extension). Our students also take what they learned in the classroom and apply it to every area of their life. With the early church as our example we desire not only to teach about ministry, but to experience ministry. Students of Crossfire Masters Commission will also have the opportunity to travel in outreach evangelism teams to areas all over this country and abroad. At Crossfire Masters Commission, students travel two months out of their nine month stay. On top of all the ministry training, traveling, life experience, and relationships you will make.
Will I be ready for Full-Time Ministry after the completion of a First Year?
This is a difficult question to answer because each student is different. Masters Commission creates an environment for you to grow in God and in Leadership. Really, the answer depends on you. You get out what you put in. We won’t say that every student will be ready for full-time ministry after his or her stay here at Crossfire Masters Commission. Upon completion of a first year we encourage students to pursue involvement in ministry and further experience in developing leadership skills. In our second year program, we focus on leadership development and would encourage you to pursue this opportunity. However we do understand that there are some very driven and focused people that will have the skills and ability to enter into ministry on a full-time basis.
What are the different areas of ministry students of Crossfire MC are involved in?

The dorms are located in the heart of Springfield, only a few minutes walk from a Super Wal-Mart, as well as many other stores, restaurants and fast food eateries. Students of Crossfire MC are encouraged to have a vehicle, but because of our central location it is not a requirement. We are located about an hour East of the Oregon Coast and 2 hours South of Portland.

Our headquarters is located in the heart of Springfield, one of the most unchurched cities in one of the most unchurched states in the United States.
