Pioneers are laypeople who volunteer at least a year to establish a congregation in an unentered area within their own culture.
They have the advantage of knowing the culture, speaking the language, blending with the local people--and being far less expensive than overseas missionaries.
More than 2,500 Global Mission pioneers are now working around the world. Since 1990 pioneers have established more than 11,000 new Seventh-day Adventist congregations.
Global Mission pioneers share the good news through a holistic ministry including: caring for the sick, teaching agricultural skills, running literacy programs, holding evangelistic meetings, and giving Bible studies.This photo features two Global Mission pioneers with a new group of believers in a remote Indian village.
