Pioneers-USA contributes to this vision by mobilizing, equipping and caring for US missionaries sent out by their local churches.

Nearly 2,000 years ago, the Apostle Paul rejoiced that all over the world the gospel was bearing fruit and growing (Colossians 1:6). And it’s still true today!
Yet as the Church has grown and changed, so has the global population. Huge challenges remain. Today, more than one in three people are still unreached. Members of some 7,000 unreached people groups have little or no opportunity to hear the gospel and see it lived out.
Pioneers teams are using creative and innovative strategies to serve in the hardest places and among the least reached, working side by side with believers from many backgrounds to show God’s love to those He is drawing to Himself.
A Pioneer in India launched a ministry that serves the disabled, impoverished and forgotten through a network of healthcare workers and volunteers who share the love of Jesus in hands-on ways.
This ministry serves in 375 villages impacting a population of 1.5 million in an area where only 0.3% of the population is Christian—and in a country home to more unreached people groups than any other.
“We attempt to identify and train one community health worker per village. Our organization now includes 485 trained health workers who provide basic health care and health education to villagers, and refer people with serious illness to partner hospitals,” they explain.
“Enabled” also operates 15 disability centers and currently supports 300 people with disabilities, both children and adults.
Social media campaigns, evangelistic websites and other digital strategies allow us to build relationships in hard-to-access communities everywhere. We walk alongside seekers on their journey to faith in Jesus. And, whenever possible, we connect them with local believers and churches.
In 2019, our Arab World media team reported
Our vision is to see mature, multiplying churches among all Muslim peoples of the Arab world.
It’s been 40 years since our first missionary went out. Pioneers has seen tremendous growth since then. But we have a big mission. It will require more people—a lot of people. In 2020, we expect to recruit another 250 new US missionaries and send out those already in the pipeline to join teams serving among 40 different unreached people groups.
