This helps us to identify peoples, languages and places that are spiritually ready for harvest_

The Samaritan woman of John 4 is a relevant example of a Pioneer [Jesus] seeing an impact opportunity in a person and, through that person, a nation. That is our vision for this pioneering project multiplied many times over through Pioneers working in multiple nations.

HOW IT
WORKS/

Partnerships Work
A partnership between pioneers, entrepreneurs
and pastors spiritually strengthens pioneering work because of each party’s unique insights. Pioneers are called to start work in new places or amongst new peoples. Pastors help pioneers by commissioning and supporting them in their church planting work. This partnership between entrepreneurs, intercessors and pastors spiritually strengthens pioneers and their work because of each party’s unique insights. Entrepreneurs provide practical business nous and intercessors offer spiritual insights into pioneering work.

Key NPI Roles
Pioneers are the most important people other than those they are reaching with the gospel. Everyone else’s role is designed to support this mission.

/Pastors - Send out and support pioneers and their successors through the church.
/Entrepreneurs - Provide practical business nous and apostolic vision for pioneering activities. /Intercessors - Offer intercessory insights and prophetic confirmation about pioneering work.
