Core Values

Core Values

The core values of the Pioneers family profoundly shape our personality and organisational culture. We see that God has designed and used these values to equip us to help establish churches in many diverse and difficult places around the world.

These core values are:

>>Passion for God

>>Unreached Peoples

>>Church-Planting Movements

>>The Local Church

>>Team-centered

>>Innovation and Flexibility

>>Ethos of Grace

>>Participatory Servant-Leadership

>>Passion for God

The Great Commandment is our motive for the Great Commission. We want to live our lives fully surrendered to Him so that all nations may know that He alone is God.

>>Unreached Peoples

Our focus is on those with the least opportunity to hear and understand the gospel.

>>Church-Planting Movements

We want to see new believers united in fellowship with other believers, forming churches that plant churches?until all peoples are reached.

>>The Local Church

We partner with sending churches to plant new communities of Christians. We also work alongside local, indigenous fellowships wherever possible.

>>Team-centered

Teams that are both task- and member-focused are the core. This is crucial since many of the world’s remaining unreached peoples are in difficult and isolated pockets of the world.

>>Innovation and Flexibility

Reaching the world’s remaining unreached peoples requires creativity as well as sensitivity to the unique calling, vision, and needs of each missionary.

>>Ethos of Grace

Understanding that each person bears the image of God, we endeavor to cultivate an atmosphere of mutual acceptance and respect in all our relationships, encouraging each one to attain his or her full potential in Christ.

>>Participatory servant-leadership

with a decentralized leadership structure, we are principle- rather than policy-driven, applying an interactive approach to decision making that is based on trust.
