Leadership on International Teams
One of Pioneers’ eight core values is “participatory servant leadership.” Each Pioneers team develops ministry strategy for engaging the unreached in its community and is led by a team leader, who provides shepherding and care for the team and who helps facilitate the growth and development of the team and team members.
Leadership in Pioneers-USA
The role of Pioneers’ US office, based in Orlando, is to support missionaries on the field through member care, processing of financial support, specialized training such as security and child safety and by mobilizing more people to join those teams.
Pioneers’ US office staff is composed of dedicated professionals committed to using their skills in finance, IT, marketing, counseling, fundraising and recruiting to support the global movement’s unified efforts to initiate church-planting movements among the unreached.
Pioneers-USA is accountable to an independent board of directors who provide oversight and spiritual guidance to the leadership and staff.
