Is Pioneers Right for You?
Choosing a sending agency is a big decision. How do you know which one to choose? Find out if Pioneers is right for you by initiating a conversation with one of our mission mentors.

"I love being a mission mentor because I get to connect with people who want to pursue their role in the Great Commission," says Rosemary, who leads the mission mentor team at Pioneers. "I get to hear their personal salvation stories. I pray with them and help them discern the next steps on their journey to an unreached people group. I want them to know if Pioneers is the best fit for them."

"Some have a clear vision of what they want to do and where they want to serve," says Emily, the administrator for the team. "They simply need someone to affirm they are on the right track and to encourage them to keep moving. Others are wrestling with what their role could be.

• We encourage college students to use their summers to proclaim His name.
• We hear from young professionals who want to use their skills to glorify God.
• We talk with young parents who plan to leave the comforts of their lives because the Lord is leading them to serve in hard places.
•We dream with older adults who are close to retirement but still have much to offer.

"Everybody needs a companion who will walk with them down a new road," Emily continues. "Someone to encourage and challenge them, rejoice and pray with them as they seek to obey the Lord and see the nations worship Him."

This team responds to emails, phone calls and inquiries that come in through our website. Their interest is to get to know you and help you get to know Pioneers. Email one of our mission mentors or share this video with a friend who may be interested.

Two million people. Zero Believers in this unreached people group in Southeast Asia. An oppressed and marginalized people, the Bahl people are citizens of no country, and speak a language which is unwritten. There are no Christian materials in their language. To be Bahl is to be Muslim, however, God is doing a beautiful thing among them. Because of their current plight, many Bahl's are open to hear anything that might bring them hope. Bahl's are asking for Bibles, for stories about Jesus in their own language, for prayer, and for God. God has prepared their hearts and continues to prepare them; the question is who will go to tell them? Call today if you want to go to the Bahl people of Southeast Asia!

Minister to atheists in creative ways

Europe seems like it has access to the gospel, right? But what if you lived in an area where you were told that your priest is the only person who can understand the Bible. Many people of Poland grow up in church tradition without encountering God’s Word for themselves. That leaves a secular culture of people who identify with a religion but not faith.


Perhaps you would fit well on a team of people using creative ways to reach Poles. They have a need for people who are certified to teach English as a second language, who are gifted in music and art, who love working with youth or are skilled in sports (like BMX and in-line skating, skateboarding, etc.).
