All Pioneer Missions missionaries are involved in the teaching ministry with national leadership, pastors, missionaries, and lay evangelists to help equip them in the areas of church growth and church planting. Thousands of national Christians have been trained in strategies that are being implemented on their mission fields.
Pioneer Evangelism, a church planting strategy developed by Wade Akins, is the primary teaching focus carried out on the mission fields. This training has equipped many pastors, evangelists, national missionaries, and lay church planters to begin implementing a strategy and methodology that will results in multiple church plants.
All American volunteer teams are involved in sharing the Gospel in the local community. The distribution of evangelistic materials, showing of the Jesus Film, door to door witnessing, visiting schools and businesses, conferences and worship services, are just a few of the avenues for ministry.
Our missionaries are involved in social evangelism through the ministry of volunteer doctors, dentists, nurses, lay persons giving out reading glasses, tennis shoes to needy children, or through music, dance, and drama teams. These impact ministries are valuable in sharing the Gospel message and developing relationships that lead to further opportunities for bible studies and evangelism.
In addition to other ministries, each volunteer team is involved in Prayer Impacts. This is where each volunteer prays over a city, village, or neighborhoods. As we walk through the community in pairs we pray over the houses, schools, businesses, and churches. We ask the Lord to open the doors for sharing the gospel. These prayer impacts have proven to be vital to the effectiveness of the evangelism ministries that follow in that location.
Volunteer Projects in General
The participation of volunteers in ministries done on the mission field is vital to our overall objectives. Each volunteer comes with unique gifts, experiences, and abilities that are used to share the love of Christ and HIS Gospel. Our projects are designed to begin on the mission field on a Saturday and end the following Saturday, allowing the teams to return to the USA on Sunday and be in their homes and work places by Monday.
Each team member will receive orientation from their team leader as to the costs, documents, and details of their project.
