Earn a Pioneers Bible Certificate after completing this track through the BibleMesh Institute

Pioneers is keenly aware of the need to equip workers well for the challenging task of church planting among unreached people groups. Our primary equipment is God’s Word, the Bible.

Being able to use Scripture, not only to feed and care for ourselves, but also to create an effective ministry approach toward the unreached requires serious preparation in both the content and implications of the Word. The Pioneers Bible Certificate is intended to provide a solid foundation toward that end. Our hope is that you will find these courses helpful and that you will pursue them wholeheartedly as unto Christ. Enjoy!
