One God. One World. One Story.

Pioneers empowers gospel-driven Christians to engage in God’s global mission story

Pioneers mobilises teams to glorify God among unreached people groups by initiating church-planting movements in partnership with local churches.

For more than 40 years, Pioneers’ passion has been to see God glorified among those who are physically and spiritually isolated from the gospel of Jesus Christ—from Muslim Bedouins in the deserts of North Africa and animist villagers in the jungles of South America to secular humanists in Eastern Europe and middle-class Buddhist urbanites in the sprawling cities of East Asia.

”How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news” (Is 52:7).

Pioneers New Zealand is part of a world-wide family of people with a passion for God who are dedicated to serving people less likely to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. With a long, rich history of supporting missionaries Pioneers NZ is experienced, well-equipped and ready to help you engage in God's global mission story.








Unreached People Groups


Each member of Pioneers is sent by their local community of believers. We value our partnership with these sending churches and with the congregations emerging among the unreached as a result of their obedience. Read more about partnering with local churches.


Today, 2.9 billion people speak languages and belong to cultures where there is no church. In response, Pioneers sends church-planting teams to serve among unreached people groups. Your support enables us to mobilise and equip missionaries on the global mission field.
