Video – How Pioneers Got Started
Started in 1979 by former businessman Ted Fletcher and his wife, Peggy, Pioneers partners with local churches to make disciples and initiate church-planting movements among unreached peoples. The unreached are cultural and ethnic groups without a self-sustaining witness to the gospel in their own cultures.
From business and education to healthcare, agriculture, the arts, and more, some 3,000 global members use their diverse gifts and experience to serve in needy communities. As they do, they see God transform lives across cultures and people groups everywhere.

Ted Fletcher wondered whether he was ready to die during the Korean War. Watch this one-minute animated video to find out how he responded to that question and founded Pioneers 40+ years ago!
