May 4th-7th: Passionate Believers Daring Dreamers

We are thrilled to be able to announce that all the main speakers are now confirmed for this years Pioneer Gathering.  The format, hope and desire for this event is that it will not only be the most diverse gathering of people wanting to explore pioneering but will also be a significant gathering of people wanting to push deeper into God and His desire to see the Kingdom grow on earth as it is in heaven.

There will be three streams as part of this event.  Stream 1 is for those people who are wanting to start something new or are being asked to consider doing something new.  Stream 2 will be for all those people whos primary role is to support pioneering mission.  Stream 3 is for those people who are already actively engaged in pioneering and exploring the edges of society.  We will also all gather together for sung worship, prayer and teaching each day.  This is a direct result of feedback received and will we pray take us deeper into Gods presence during our time gathered together.

We have as our main speakers Commissioner Gill Cotterill, Jo Simpson, Andrea Campanele and Trevor Hutton.  Nik King and his team will lead worship.  (Bios of speakers etc can be found on the Facebook Pioneer Page, if you are not a member just request admittance and I will do this)

We also have leaders coming to join with us from Denmark, Holland, Norway and Sweden this year as momentum to grow this across Europe increases.

Places are likely to be very tight and limited this year so please request and or book your places through your DHQ team.
