Pioneer International is the global arm of the Pioneer Network which seeks to connect and grow the relationships and partnership with churches and networks around the world.

Pioneer churches have always had a strong international vision and many churches within Pioneer have active and long-established working relationships with churches and Christian organisations in many parts of the world.

In recent years some of these relationships have developed to a point where the church or network have asked to join the Pioneer family. We are now developing a number of Pioneer international regions in Australia/New Zealand, Asia [India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh], East Africa, West Africa, Southern Africa, Europe, Latin America and North America.

Pioneer Network Australia has been connected to Pioneer since 2009, when it was ‘OzReach Network’. Now under the leadership of Linda Ward, Pioneer Network Australia seeks to support and encourage churches in Australia and New Zealand and outwork the values of Pioneer in the nation.

Pioneer Network USA is a network of churches based across a number of sates in the USA, including City Church in Russellville, Arkansas, who have been connected with Pioneer since 1979, and Revive Church in Hesperia, Michigan.
