Surround pioneers with a network of fellow sojourners and practitioners of missional ministry
Over the course of approximately six months, Pioneer cohorts meet for two weekend retreats, monthly connection and support through coaching. Teams and individuals discern and implement intentional steps toward developing fresh expressions of church appropriate to their unique contexts.
