At Pioneers, we believe...

That the message of the gospel is for everyone. Jesus loves the whole world. It’s a message intended for every person on the planet, but who will share the good news with those who have not yet heard?

That anyone can share the Gospel. We believe that we all have unique personalities, gifts and skills that we can use to communicate the gospel. The way we go about sharing can be simple, innovative or even surprising. But always, for the sake of God’s glory among the nations.

That we are called to walk together. Every journey starts with the first step, but God does not expect you to begin on your own. We’re keen to help by walking with you, encouraging, supporting and praying with you, as you seek his will for your part in cross-cultural missions. Whether you already have a heart for a people or a place, or if you have no idea where to start, we’d love to hear from you.

Short-term opportunities

Up to 1 year

Our short-term opportunities are designed to equip participants with the knowledge and experience necessary to see what God has next for them. Being in a new country, experiencing a different culture and seeing mission work up close can turn your interest in mission into a heart for mission. 

Long-term opportunities

More than 1 year

Long term church planting among the unreached is our speciality. We currently have 3000+ members serving on 324 teams, in 104 countries, working among more than 200 different unreached people groups. Pioneers missionaries use innovative methods of ministry to plant churches across the globe. Our missionaries use what they have learnt in life to serve others and share the gospel as teachers, builders, doctors, business people, engineers and so much more. See where God can lead you in long-term missions service.
