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
  • children’s workers (single people only, please)
  • university students
  • refugee workers

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.

To find out more about these teams, don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of our mission mentors.

Not exactly what you’re looking for? Pioneers has hundreds of cross-cultural mission opportunities available – far too many to list on our website. Get in touch with our mission mentors to find an opportunity that’s right for you!

Summer Trip: Czech Team

Region
Europe
Ministry
Outreach | Sport | Church Planting
Duration
Short Term
Religion
Unreligious

Dates: 1 June – 10 August
Cost: £2,625 + Flights

The Czech Republic is one of the most atheistic countries in the world. The number of Bible-believing and Christ-following people is less than 1% of the population.

The Czech Republic is a first-world country and a member of the European Union. It has a stable economy and the lowest unemployment rate in the EU. Most Czechs enjoy a fairly comfortable standard of living.

The unfortunate side effect of living a relatively comfortable life is that most people are unaware of their need for God. Christianity is not on their radar. A person who genuinely believes in the God of the Bible and directs his/her life according to Biblical precepts is often viewed with disdain or even contempt.

A large part of your ministry here will be making connections with people.

Meeting and learning to trust a Christian is a significant step for most Czechs. You will be working in areas where Czechs do have needs and seek to meet them there. For example, since the Czech Republic is a member of the EU, proficiency in the English language is beneficial to Czech people.

You will be teaching English classes and tutoring Czechs. This gives the opportunity to build relationships. Also, most Czechs enjoy exercise and activity. Ministry centering on sports and outdoor activities gives you a chance to connect with unbelievers.

Czech Mission Trip Activities (subject to change)

  • Study the basics of the Czech language
  • Participate in English day camps for children and teenagers
  • Assist with a scouting-type camp for children and teenagers
  • Help with English language intensive weeks for adults
  • Connect with Czech teenagers/adults at a sports day camp
  • Gain exposure to the broader ministries of the Czech team in various regions of the country

Religion

Dates: 1 June – 26 July
Cost: £1,900 + Flights

This city is a blend of unreached peoples, languages, and beliefs impacting all parts of life.

In a single neighborhood you will often hear bells from the Hindu temple, smell incense from Buddhist and Taoist worshippers, and hear the Muslim call to prayer.

This location is a beautiful, equatorial tropical island.

The area is in the suburbs, with both a large outdoor market and a large superstore within 10 minutes. You will be a 45-minute flight from the capital. There’s an international airport on the island, along with several malls and other modern conveniences.

Yet, below the surface are many complexities; the world’s three largest non-Christian religions all live on top of each other and coexist in everyday life.

There is a wide array of social classes as well, ranging from:

-migrant workers from nearby countries

-local Muslims who speak little to no English

-Hindus who speak mostly the local language and also English

-very wealthy East Asian Tibetans and Buddhist business people/property owners.

There is a lot of seafood here, the climate is hot and humid year-round (33 degrees Celsius every day), and rain is often on the forecast.

Our island is considered a top-ten foodie destination in the world!

Mission Trip Activities (subject to change)

  • Prayerwalking. This is a regular part of our weekly routine. You will prayer walk different parts of the city at least two or three times a week.
  • Going out 2×2. You will learn the way that Jesus sent out His disciples in Luke 9, 10, and Matthew 10 and then go out 2×2 to practice these things several times a week.
  • Disciple making training. We will walk through the biblical principles of disciple making together as a team and with other expats and put them into practice together.

Amidst the cries of the mosques, God is crying out to the hearts of many people in South East Asia and preparing them to hear and receive His Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ.

The local people generally love Westerners and want to spend a lot of time with them, allowing for time to learn language and build friendships.

If you’re interested in engaging unreached people, but don’t know where to start, then this trip is the perfect place for you to get your feet wet.

Within our city, you can experience the haunting sounds of the Islamic call to prayer, the smell of incense from the Buddhist Temple,  and walk up 300 steps into a Hindu cave.

Here you can mingle with Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Animists, Sikhs, and Christians.  Not only is it religiously diverse, but is an ethnic melting pot as well.

In our business alone, we have had employees from Sudan, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Malaysia, Afghanistan, and Somalia.  At the international school and church, there are students from Syria, Myanmar, Iran, Korea, and many others! Due to the diverse nature of the people, the teams in the country have also taken many different avenues of ministry. This includes: teaching, studying, BAM, sports/fitness classes, board games, and outreach to refugees/trafficked people.

The only main requirements in coming is  that you are flexible and willing to eat – often!  Eating is one of the main ways to meet people and begin to share life together.  Can’t choose where to go in the world or what language/religion/people to focus on?  Don’t!  Come and meet them all.

Summer Trip: Horn Team

Religion
Muslim

Dates: 1 June – 10 August
Cost: £2,300 + Flights

Islam holds deep roots among this proud people.

There are nearly 15 million people in east Africa, yet not a single mature church. But we trust God is moving and preparing for a great harvest. Having experienced war for over 20 years, these people are desperate for peace. Christ is the Prince of Peace who brings light and life into dark places. Yet how will they ever know unless someone goes and shares this great news?

Your focus will be teaching intermediate/advanced English to those who are in the process of moving to America or another western country.

From relationships formed within the school and in the neighborhood, you will have many opportunities to share about your own life and faith. This may be over a cup of tea, a game of chess, a meal of camel meat and pasta, a pick-up game of soccer, getting henna or simply relaxing together in the living room. Previous Edgers have been amazed to find that they were the first ever to share the love of Christ with a local friend.

We are praying that you may help us find people whom the Spirit is already working in towards faith. The long-term team can then follow up and continue your work long after you leave.

While the majority of your stay will be in an urban environment, you may also take side trips into the rural areas to visit other work being done. Our goal is to open your eyes to the many opportunities and possibilities for long-term work in the area.

You will also spend time learning some language and more about the culture.

Mission Trip Activities (subject to change)

  • Language and cultural study
  • Prayer-walking
  • Teaching English
  • Intentional relationship building in any way possible

A team in the heart of the Amazon is looking for 15 new teammates. Could you be one of them?

Currently based in the town of Benjamin Constant, Brazil, this team is working with tribes and villages along the Javari and Amazon Rivers. The team operate out of the larger town along the rivers and make trips to the tribes for evangelisation, planting churches and training indigenous church leaders and missionaries. They primarily use Spanish and Portuguese for the ministry as most people in the area have a good understanding of one or both, with those they disciple as local leaders then training others in their tribal dialects.

In addition to traditional church planters, the team are looking for:

  • Accountants
  • Pilots
  • Mechanics
  • Community health workers
  • Anyone with a practical skillset

Outside the town, which has about 20,000 people, the area is very isolated. Supplies are delivered to the region by barge and occasional small planes. The team travel to the villages primarily by boat, and occasionally by plane.

If this type of work in this type of environment gets you excited, we’d love to talk with you. Get in touch with our mobilisation team today!

Xplore “was a really great opportunity for me to dedicate part of life solely to serving the Lord… and in such a fantastic and fun way! I got to meet so many wonderful people and share the gospel more times than I ever had done previously. It helped me to clarify what I wanted to do with my life and helped me to recognise and learn to use the gifts God has given me. It was a really varied experience which gave me a good feel for all the different aspects of missionary life – from the challenges to the incredibly joyful moments.”

Launch into Ministry in the Balkans

Launch Teams in the Balkans are looking for new team members who are ready to explore what God has for them in the region.

Many areas are moving to the Launch Team model of welcoming new field workers to the field. Launch Team members will spend two years learning the local language and culture while exploring ministry opportunities in the area. The hope is that teams would form within the Launch Team who would then be sent together to start new ministries in other parts of the region. During the two Launch years, Launch Team members will be fully engaged in ministry activities as well as studying language and culture.

The team’s purpose statement is: Our team exists to catalyse multiplication at all levels of disciple-making and church planting activities, and to do this in cooperation with local churches. Along the way we want to raise the standard of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, while simplifying what it means to be a church. We also seek to simplify the process of being a disciple by equipping everyone with simple, reproducible skills and methods that can be easily learned and taught to others, believing that 2 Timothy 2:2 holds some clues for multiplication of disciples and leaders.

The team welcomes people with any skills or gifting, but particular opportunities in the area currently include:

  • teaching english (or another foreign language)
  • inter-religious dialogue
  • journalism
  • performing arts (music, dance)
  • sports
  • advocating for life through a local pro-life project
  • peace and reconciliation activities
  • working with youth in local churches
  • IT
  • medical
