Beginning a new life in a foreign culture is daunting, but Pioneers has a solution—launch teams.
Launch teams are a landing place for new Pioneers to be mentored by a team of long-term church planters for up to two years while learning the language and culture. Those two years allow Pioneers to explore new areas and new teams where they can serve long-term.
One of those teams is the East Islands launch team in Southeast Asia (watch the video below). The team is situated in a gateway city to nearly 50 distinct unreached people groups—ones in which Christ has not been named and where the people haven’t heard the name of Jesus.
