Pioneers is a servant of local churches because local churches are mandated to engage in mission activity.  Your church will be your sending body and we will work with you to ensure your church understands the responsibility they embrace when they send their members to other parts of the world.

We’ll invite your church to be involved all along the way:

  • As you are thinking about mission: share with your church leaders, ask for their prayer and include them in your discernment process.
  • Before we formalise the application stage of joining Pioneers, a member of our team will meet with your pastor or mission advocate.
  • The relationship with your church is essential at every step of your missions journey; before you go, while you’re serving cross-culturally, and when you’re back in Australia to reconnect with family, church and supporters.
