Join a newly formed team in South Asia who are planting churches through relationship discipleship.

A team in South Asia is focussing on building relationships as they seek out People of Peace. Their main priorities are to practice hospitality and relational openness, to grow in Christlikeness and holiness, to grow deeper in personal discipleship, and to exercise prayer–and they want to do all of this in front of their friends and neighbours so that they will see a true model of who Christ is. They hope that their relationships will lead to DBS groups and eventually churches.

If you think you might be a good fit for this team, get in touch with our office team to find out more.

Join one of several teams in a large North African city.

Multiple teams in a large North African city are opening their doors to people with several skillsets to help make disciples and plant churches all over the region. They are looking for:

  • web developers
  • medical professionals
  • digital and social media marketers
  • app developers
  • videographers
  • video editors
  • photographers
  • writers
  • experienced English teachers (with TOEFL certification)
  • business innovators and entrepreneurs

All new candidates would need to start their ministry on the Equipping Team, where they will learn the language and culture of the area. Those who already speak the majority language would be able to join a team immediately rather than starting with the Equipping Team. All team members are also involved in discipleship and church planting activities. Additionally, anyone wishing to join one of the teams must be willing and able to adapt to living in a very urban environment.  Positions are available on a long-term, mid-term and short-term basis.

Homeschooling Helper Needed in South Asia

Want to support a family in a mountainous region of South Asia through helping homeschool their kids? 

A family in South Asia is looking for someone to spend a few hours a day, 5 days a week, with their 3 children (ages 6, 7, and 10) helping them through their homeschool curriculum. This will free the parents for more effective language learning and local ministry, and will help the entire team minister more effectively in their area. The homeschool helper would be considered a full-fledged member of the ministry team, participating in worship times and accountability. Other ministry opportunities will arise and could be pursued in addition to helping with the children.

The family are open to a male or female. Accommodation is available with an existing team member (or separately) if the candidate is female. If the candidate is male, the team will assist him in finding accommodation.  The homeschool helper is needed for any length of time between now and Autumn of 2020. No teaching experience is strictly necessary.

The team is currently made up of 3 young families and a single woman.

If you can see yourself giving a year or so to this type of ministry, we’d love to hear from you!  Get in touch with our mission mentors today!

Help Tackle HIV/AIDS in West Africa

Join a team who have established a charity that takes a unique church-centred approach to the HIV pandemic; integrating prevention, care and support and attitude change activities.

We believe that the HIV/AIDS pandemic is more than a medical emergency; it is also a spiritual and moral crisis. Indeed the spiritual and moral issues go deeper than the medical ones in both developed and developing nations. Thus we have constructed a response that tackles all three areas. In our charity, medical personnel and theologians work together to transform lives through our three principles: grace, openness and love.

We work through local churches of any denomination. They are rooted in their communities and retain respect, a potent combination in the fight against HIV and AIDS. The process begins with the minister and leaders; we only go into churches with their active support. Then we address the entire congregation during a service, giving basic information on the disease and preaching the gospel and challenging people.

That challenge begins with HIV testing on the church premises for all who are interested. Two options are offered; standard confidential testing or openness – sharing your results with other people in the church who have also chosen to be open.

All who choose the second option make three commitments, to:

  • Belong to Christ in the gospel
  • Be open about their HIV status, whether positive or negative
  • Meet together regularly in small groups to support and encourage each other.

If you are interested in challenging and educating the local church about a Biblical response to HIV/AIDS, we’d love to put you in touch with this team. Get in touch with our office team today!

Join a Pioneers field team who are working to conserve threatened areas and educate West Africans about Creation Care.

Eden Creation Care Initiative (EDEN) is a faith-based, non-profit, conservation organisation closely linked to Pioneers field workers that helps communities protect areas important for their biodiversity, through educational programmes and scientific research. They are currently running two conservation projects:

Rennajj Fish Farm is a comparatively small area of well demarcated privately owned land, covering 80 hectares. It is on the fringes of the Jos metropolis, and suburban development is currently proceeding close to about half of the farm perimeter. The most significant habitat there is wetland. It regularly holds numerous species of herons and waders, whilst gulls, terns and Ospreys are occasional visitors. Appropriate management and protection of the area could potentially increase species diversity considerably.

Mushere Forest (Dulu area of Kadim in Mushereland) has a total area of 40-50 square kilometers. The aim of this project is to provide effective protection for one of Northern Nigeria’s most severely threatened habitats: forest. The area has been selected because damage to the forest is less severe than in many other areas, and difficulty of access makes protection more feasible than elsewhere.

The team are looking for a self-starting, enthusiastic teammate to help run these programmes on a mid- to long-term basis. No professional qualifications are necessary; just a willingness to learn, a heart to serve and a love for God’s natural world.

An invitation for software developers & professionals to invest in the peoples of Eastern Europe.

With experience in secure payment platforms, a Pioneers team member has established a software development company which currently employs twenty locals. An open door now exists for field workers to come work part-time in management roles, or in teaching Western culture to facilitate helpful client relationships (clients are currently predominantly located in Australia, the UK, and the US).

The founder longs to create a business culture with impact far beyond the daily grind of work hours. Many of the country’s young, talented IT professionals end up leaving home to work in the West. They have a hunger and a longing for more – more that can only be found in Jesus. Apart from investing in relationships with local co-workers, you could use this door to reach into universities, mobilise local believers, locate unreached people groups in the city, and trust God for a church planting movement.

City Snapshot: The second largest city in the country and a growing hub for tech companies, young professionals, and IT specialists. Nearly 1.5 million people, with half of the population under 20 years of age. Over seventeen national universities and many more technical and private universities. Considered a cultural centre, as it hosts numerous music and film festivals yearly and is home to theatres and art galleries, as well as numerous authors.

UPG Snapshot: While the country has a growing body of evangelicals, much of the population remains orthodox. There are 26 UPGS in the country, including Tatar, Azerbaijani, Uzbek, Roma, and more.  Specifically in this city, there are over 8,000 Jews yet to know the hope of their Messiah.

Potential Roles to Fill

  • Client Account Manager
  • Software Developer
  • Project Manager
  • Teaching English language and culture, etc.


Useful Skill-sets 

  • Experience in start-ups
  • Team-builders
  • Culture & Language Professionals
  • Knowledge of the following: JavaScript, NodeJS, Angular, ReactNative, and more.

Positions are paid, whether part-time or full-time, according to the cost of living for locals in the city. Foreigners may want / need to raise supplemental support.
