Pioneers Webinars: 2021
Being in lockdown threatened to put a hamper on our mobilisation efforts in 2020, but God made a way for us to keep connecting with His church and with those who are being called to serve cross culturally. Our Mission:First and Mission:Engage interactive webinar series are designed to help British Christians engage more with mission. Whether you are considering serving cross-culturally yourself or are interested in helping inspire your church toward greater involvement at home and abroad, we have a webinar for you!
Webinar topics have included:
Team Ministry – What’s that?
What’s a Sending Church, and do I need one?
Choosing a Mission Agency
Calling & Gifting – How do I figure that out?
Marketplace Initiatives: Business As Mission
Our next webinar is: Introducing Children to Mission with the authors of ‘mission & me?’, an exciting resource that will help church children’s groups to develop an interest in global mission as we talk about the why and the how of encouraging children to make a difference for God and for good in the world. The webinar will be hosted by Ruth Box, one of Pioneers UK’s Mission Mentors. Janet Brown and Ruth MacBean of ‘mission & me?’ will lead us through a sample lesson and help us to think seriously and creatively about the difference children can learn to make now – not just when they become adults!
You may also be interested in: Like/Follow/Share, a webinar to help equip you to inspire your church to engage with mission around the world.

Every Summer, we take to the road to host two day-long events called Pioneers: Live. We spend the day with current and former missionaries, supporters, church leaders, and anyone else who wants to come along to hear about what God is doing on the mission field all over the world. We’re still working on dates and locations for Summer 2020, so check back in April for more information, or email email@example.com to register your interest in coming along. Hope to see you there!
