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, so register your interest in a team today.
In 2018 we have teams going to Stockholm, Latvia and Malaga. The teams for 2019 will be announced soon.
Make space to explore the call on your life.
Consider your strengths, clarify your call and research the route ahead. Through equipping and ministry, this weekend will set you up to go!
Friday 28 Sept - Sun 30 Sept | Colchester, UK | £20 per person.
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:
28 - 30 September 2018. 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.
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. Trips running this Autumn to Malaga, Stockholm and Latvia.
In October 2017 we held the 4 day Pioneer Conference in Malaga, Spain. We had an amazing time of quality teaching, practical equipping and inspiring times of worship and fellowship. The media from the sessions is available (click button below). The next conference will be in 2019.
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. This training is usually run annually on a weekend.
We are currently developing various resources to help you in your pioneering journey. We will let you know when they are available!
