Partners in Pioneering
In 2012 Lynn Green, the General Secretary of the Baptist Union of Great Britain, said: “I believe that we need an explosion of new pioneers and I am praying that God will raise them up.”
Baptists Together are actively involved in seeking to make this vision a reality through the appointment of Pioneer Co-ordinators across the UK.
A variety of agencies are also working in partnership to support pioneering within Baptists Together.
Urban Expression is a mission agency that recruits, equips, deploys and networks self- financing teams pioneering creative and relevant expressions of the Christian church in under-churched areas of the inner city. It is committed to incarnational ministry on the margins and amongst the poor, and encourages teams to move into urban neighbourhoods to work with others to pioneer exciting, grass-roots, transformative way of being church which seek God’s kingdom of justice and peace.
Incarnate is a grass-roots church planting, pioneer and fresh expressions network for the UK and mainland Europe, led by Baptist practitioners and acting as the Baptist Union of Great Britain’s church planting network. Its regular gatherings provide great opportunity for pioneers to engage in friendly conversation, learn from insightful main sessions and collaborative workshops, and to share experiences and stories of mission.
