Opportunity – Like to Get Your Hands Dirty?
Explore Mission Opportunities Using Agriculture
Maybe you grew up harvesting wheat or raising corn in America’s heartland. FFA or 4-H projects were the highlights of your childhood. You have a collection of ribbons from the county fair. You love a good farmers’ market or community garden scheme. Or maybe you just have a vision to meet practical needs and help people use local natural resources wisely.
Looking for ways to use your ag skills overseas? Pioneers may have a place for you.
- Tish and Alan teach sustainable farming techniques while managing an organic farm.
- Seth and Heather’s chicken farm provides jobs as well as meeting a market for good sources of protein.
- Chris manages an orchard and in so doing, facilitates relationships between Christian workers and unreached people of their area.
Others grow coffee, make cheese, or build bridges between the farmers and consumers of a wide variety of products.
These Pioneers and others are serving their communities while building pathways for evangelism or creating contexts for discipleship. Often they work shoulder-to-shoulder with local believers, living out the gospel in places where it has been little seen.
Use your agricultural passion and knowledge overseas while sharing the gospel.
Some of those involved in agricultural ministry build on years of experience in related careers, but others learn as they go, working with business advisors and local partners to serve in newer fields like aquaculture or ecological preservation. Many could use help developing markets or managing administrative tasks like bookkeeping and inventory control. Some welcome short-term workers, from subject-area experts who can provide training seminars to interns who want to work alongside them.

Stories from the pursuit
Photo Essay – Remembering What God Has Done
Turning points from our 40 years: “We continually reminded ourselves that God didn’t say, ‘Go into all the world where you can get a missionary visa.’ He just said, ‘Go into all the world.’”
Seeking God on the Edge of the Sahara
“There is no easy way for people to follow Jesus here.” Pray for more to seek God, and for those already seeking God to not lose heart.
