Next steps for Pioneer Ministry

Pioneer Ministry is a growing movement within the Church of Ireland to reach those with little or no connection to church. Much has been happening to communicate the vision since its formal launch in February of this year.

As part of this vision, the team is beginning to identify the first of the new full–time funded pioneers and accepting applications for new funded pioneer ministries.

The first intake of these funded pioneers will be in Autumn 2024, but the selection of these people will start in each diocese over the next few months. If you are interested in becoming a Church of Ireland pioneer minister, or in developing a new funded pioneer ministry, please get in touch to register your interest.

The pioneer leadership team is there to help, support and guide potential pioneers through this process as they work with each bishop and their associated diocese.

Much more comprehensive information will be available during November on the website: www.pioneerministry.org and you also can register your interest by emailing: info@pioneerministry.org
