1 in 3 is Still Unreached
More than 30% of the world's population lives outside the reach of any church. Sadly, only 3 out of every 100 missionaries goes to work among them! Pioneers continues to seek those who have a pioneering spirit to live and serve Christ among those who have never heard.
A World of Possibilities
We live in a world of diverse peoples and cultures, and God has given each of us a unique set of skills, passions and abilities. At Pioneers, we are committed to taking time to hear your story and help you find a location, role and team that fits. Here’s what that process might look like for you:
Your church, in partnership with Pioneers, will send you to live among the unreached in one of more than 100 countries.
You will join and work alongside a team, often made up of people who have been there longer than you and can help you find your way.
You will spend some time learning language and culture, get settled, build relationships and make disciples.
Using your experience in business, education, healthcare, technology, the arts or anything in between, you and your team will serve and empower your community.
By God’s grace, you’ll help plant a church that will in turn begin to plant other churches.
After that…who knows? God could take you anywhere to do anything, and we will be right by your side!
