Core values

Our core values are…

Passion for God

The Great Commandment is our motive for the Great Commission. We want to live our lives fully surrendered to him so that all nations may know that he alone is God.

Unreached peoples

Pioneers focuses on those with the least opportunity to hear and understand the gospel.

Church planting movements

We want to see new believers united in fellowship with other believers, forming churches that plant churches – until all peoples are reached.

Ethos of grace

Understanding that each person bears the image of God, we endeavour to cultivate an atmosphere of mutual acceptance and respect in all our relationships, encouraging each one to attain his or her full potential in Christ.

The local church

Pioneers partners with sending churches to plant new communities of Christians. We also work alongside local, indigenous fellowships wherever possible.

Team centered

Teams that are both task and member-focused are the core of Pioneers. This is crucial since many of the world’s remaining unreached peoples are in difficult and isolated pockets of the world.

Innovation and flexibility

Reaching the world’s remaining unreached peoples requires creativity and a sensitivity to the unique calling, vision, and needs of each missionary.

Participatory servant leadership

Pioneers has a decentralized leadership structure. We are principle rather than policy-driven, applying an interactive approach to decision making that is based on trust.
