Our flagship pioneering event is happening 25 -28 Sept 2019. Join church planters and their supporters from all over Europe as we gather in Malaga, Spain, for 4 days of equipping and encouragement.
This year we are joining with New Ground churches to run the event. By partnering together we can create even more momentum for the gospel across Europe.
HOW CAN YOU Pioneer?
We believe the local church is the hope of the world and that every community needs a church that displays the fullness of church life as described in the New Testament.
God has spoken to our family prophetically about reaching many nations with the gospel and we are committed to starting churches in every nation of Europe and throughout the world as God leads us.
For example, earlier this year we shared how God has spoken to us prophetically about the Hanseatic League shaping some of our pioneering efforts. Learn more in this video.
We want to help you outwork the calling God has placed on your life and help shape what the pioneering adventure looks like for you.
Grow your Heart for the Nations
Whether you are exploring a call to pioneer or just keen to be part of the family mission. Come and spend a weekend serving one of our church plants. This is a wonderful opportunity to grow your heart for mission. Teams are open to anyone in any of our churches.
WHERE ARE WE PIONEERING AT THE MOMENT?
Our family has many pioneering heroes who have stepped out in faith to take the gospel to many communities across the world. We also have a number of nations that God has spoken to us about, where we are waiting for God to raise up people to lead the charge!

SHAPE YOUR PIONEERING ADVENTURE
We run a number of events and connection opportunities to help you shape your adventure and meet fellow pioneers:
25-28th September 2019 is our next Pioneer Conference. This again will be held in Malaga, Spain. This time we are joining forces with our friends from New Ground. Together we will be equipping and inspiring everyone who has a heart for reaching the nations. If you are a church planter, church leader sending people on mission or just someone with a heart for reaching the nations, this event is for you. Booking opens 31st January 2019.
Pioneer MISSION TEAMS are short term mission teams going to church plants across Europe. You will travel with a team of like-minded people to one of our church plants, where you will help run practical and ministry based events. This is an excellent opportunity to contribute to the mission of the church plants and also to get a taste for the nations.
If you feel God is calling you on mission, within your nation or to other nations, then this weekend is for you. We will use a mixture of teaching and practical sessions to inspire you, prepare you and equip you for your mission. The next event is planned for Sept 2020. Sign up below to be the first to hear all the details.
TRAINING FOR PIONEERS
Currently there are 2 main training opportunities (more are in development) for our pioneers outside of our events:
If you are considering being part of the leadership team of a church plant or you have a heart to develop your skills and knowledge of pioneering then LEAD leadership training is the place to get the foundational training you will need. As part of LEAD you can choose to follow the 'Church Planting Training Track' where you will be part of the church planting huddle and take specific modules to prepare you for pioneering.
First Phase Pioneer Training
This training is aimed at specifically equipping those pioneers who know the nation they are pioneering to and are about to enter the first phase of the journey. It will look at the early phases of church planting, i.e. preparing to go, gathering people and launching. It will also help you explore apostolic & prophetic foundations and learn what it means to be family on a mission. The dates of the next event have not yet been announced. Sign up for Pioneer News to be the first to hear.
