For nearly 40 years, Pioneers missionaries have been using innovative and creative means to bring the gospel to every corner of the globe.

Pioneers missionaries go where there is little access to the gospel.

Making Disciples

Founded 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—ethnic groups without a self-sustaining witness to the gospel in their own cultures.

Pioneers missionaries meet needs and build relationships.

From business and education to healthcare and agriculture, more than 3,000 global members  use their diverse gifts and experience to serve in needy communities and watch God transform lives across cultures and people groups everywhere.

Reaching the Unreached

Whether in sprawling cities or rural villages, Pioneers teams use innovative and creative means to build relationships and make disciples. They make their homes in unreached contexts, learn language and share the gospel in culturally understandable ways.

Pioneers missionaries are sent by their local church.

Working Together

We work in partnership with the local church.

Each missionary is commissioned by a sending church. They are financially supported by the sacrificial gifts of friends, family, and congregations. We also work alongside local believers with a heart to see disciples making disciples, worldwide.

Pioneers values integrity and accountability. For this reason, we link arms with other evangelical mission organizations and submit to godly leadership.
