Others have wondered the same thing. We made a video to answer this question. Watch it below!

We want to get to know you and you want to get to know Pioneers better. The Start Form helps to launch that conversation.
After taking a minute to fill out the Start Form, you’ll be able to schedule a call with us. Ready for the next step? We will assign you a coach to walk with you.

Attend Orientation
Learn more about us by coming to Pioneers in sunny Orlando, Florida for a five-day event we call Explore.
Expect to come away with a personalized pre-field training plan, with tasks and steps to help you go to the field well prepared the healthy. We wrote an article that details what a typical Explore week looks like.

Build Your Support Team
You’ll need an active team of supporters who will pray fervently and give financially to help you thrive on the field. Our coaches will help along the way!
We put together a helpful list of 10 key questions about budgets and raising support.

Get Trained
After completing your pre-field preparation and raised support, you’ve got one more stop: Launch. This final five-day training event in Orlando ensures you are ready to go to the field.
(Joining Venture to go to the field for a year or less? You will not need to come to Launch. Instead, your coach will work with you as you complete other pre-field training steps.)

We make a case for why pre-field preparation is so important. Don’t sleep on it!
Prepare yourself
The next step is simple: GO! Buy your plane tickets, pack your bags and say your goodbyes.
Receive Ongoing Care
This final step is less of an actual step and more of an ongoing process of Pioneers caring for you while you live and minister cross-culturally.
Team leaders and teammates are the primary source of member care, but regional leaders and a skilled member development team are ready to come alongside you as needed.
