We journey with people at various points of their calling from their first steps to retirement. Mentoring allows us to keep walking alongside people through the highs and lows and help people flourish personally in their team, and (by God’s grace) remain in sustainable, long-term and fruitful ministry.
As a mission family we’re passionate about being relational, intentional and flexible so to best support those serving in cross-cultural mission. We help in a range of ways depending on the need, such as arranging tailor-made ministry placements, providing one-to-one debrief sessions for short-termers exploring their place in overseas mission, and advising church leaders about how to send and sustain cross-cultural workers.
AWM-Pioneers is committed to working in partnership with local churches, especially throughout the preparation process. Our role is to facilitate your church in sending you into cross-cultural ministry. Our desire is that this three-way partnership is effective, involving understanding, commitment, shared aims, good communication and godly sacrifice. Get in touch and we would love to discuss things in more detail.
‘Having specific advice about the different contexts of ministry overseas has developed my understanding of what a future in mission could realistically look like for me. I’ve moved from a vague idea to a more focused view of what steps I should take or what sacrifices may lay in store for me as I follow God’s leading. Overall, the weekend left me with a greater passion for our gracious Saviour and a greater desire to make Him known to those around me. I’m incredibly thankful for this.’

‘My placement was an amazing learning curve. It opened my eyes to what serving cross-culturally looks like, and highlighted the importance of team. My advice to anyone thinking about short-term is simple. Just go for it.’
James, 3 month placement in North Africa now preparing for long-term
