Ministry Description

About PMM
The Pioneer Mission Movement is a Global Mission Project of the Northern Asia-Pacific Division(NSD) for the purpose of new church planting in its territories. Its goal is to send 100 church pastors to other countries within the NSD territories for cross-cultural missionary work. These pastors will be sent to un-entered territories where no Seventh-day Adventist church exists. With pioneer spirit they will begin the work. Starting from scratch, they will share the gospel message with numerous people who are perishing in the world of darkness without the knowledge of Jesus Christ.

NSD is the largest Division in the world in terms of population as well as in the number of non-Christians. About 1.5 billion people, around one fourth of the World population, reside in the NSD territories. Among this huge population only 3% are Christians, and the other 97% are Buddhists, Shintoists, Muslims, Shamans, and Atheists. Challenges are everywhere in this area. The pioneer missionary pastors will gladly go to every nation, tribe, tongue and people as Golden Angels having the everlasting gospel message in their hands. By launching this project, the churches in the NSD territories will be taking a significant step toward the accomplishment of the gospel commission in the entire world.
