“I will never be the same again … ”
– Mission Team Member
Missions – our model
Pioneer Ministries does several short-term missions every year, and we invite people to come on board with what God is doing in the nations.
On these mission trips we work with local pastors and community leaders to spread the love of Jesus to the poor and the hurting. We frequent hospitals, orphanages, prisons, brothels, as well as house-to-house in a lot of poor slum-like areas. This is additional to the night meetings Joseph and Lesley are hosting in the area, where you will get to partake of close up ministry of healing the sick and casting out demons.
When you sign up as a Pioneer Mission Team member, we want you to express the freedom and liberty we all have in Christ to walk in our gifts, dreams and destiny that the mission work and the crusade’s provides. But it is important that we all conduct ourselves according to the kingdom of Heaven, as well as honouring the protocols Pioneer Ministry have established in these nations. We have written down a code of conduct to help people make sure their hearts are prepared for a Pioneer ministry trip.
Pioneer Mission Team member expectations:
Understand that you are first and foremost representing Jesus to people. This means a high level of moral and ethical standards expressed in the way you conduct yourselves around people and churches and the mission team. Paul said in I Thessalonians 5:22 to “Abstain from all appearance of evil”
Understand that you are representing Pioneer Ministry and you will be functioning within the relationships and ministry connections that Joseph, Lesley and the team have built over several years of ministry.
Servant-leadership is key to our values. Have a heart attitude to serve the people of the nations. And to serve people on the mission team. Look for opportunity to be a blessing.
There are leaders that have been appointed for the length of the mission’s trip and it is important that we can all function together as a unit, in humility and unity concerning decisions and timetabling of the schedule. We are operating a very flexible missions model, but for the sake of courtesy, please keep in touch with the leaders so we can all work together with the timetable.
Attend all team meetings, both prior to departure and during the mission trip. If you are unable to attend, please contact your leadership prior to the meeting.
Honour everyone you are in contact with, whether pastors and leaders or people on the street, show grace and love at all times. Even if functioning in the gifts or praying for the sick always leave people feeling loved, and valued.
Please download the complete code of conduct.
Dear Mr Lee,
It’s been indeed a huge honour to be a part of your team and the work you do; its the hard working men and women (on the mission team) to whom we owe a mighty hand of acknowledgement.
The children (at the orphanage) and so many of the women (from the brothel), men (from our hospital) that your team visited, many lives that your team has touched … to this I thank you for all you have done.
And yes, my life can never be the same again too, so many things seem clear now, many things have meaning now. Thank you so so much!

“My involvement with Pioneer Ministries and going to Samoa, American Samoa and Fiji … was a genuine adventure both spiritually and naturally. I witnessed miracles, healings, Holy Spirit baptisms, deliverances, salvation to many souls, agape love, and even a category 5 cyclone stopped in its very tracks as it bore down on us in W. Samoa.
I will never be the same again and this type of genuine ministry makes one hungry to see and experience more.
