Trekkers travel across difficult geography to ensure that people have access to God’s Word.


  • To see God’s word changing people’s hearts in their heart language
  • Adventure and spontaneity
  • Roughing it in substandard or improvised living situations


  • Cross-cultural ministry studies
  • Able to travel long distances in suboptimal conditions on foot or by bicycle

Trekkers are able-bodied men and women willing to traverse harsh terrain to remote communities to distribute translated Scripture. These excursions into isolated areas are often the forerunners to Scripture listening groups and church plants.

Most of our teammates raise support on behalf of Pioneer Bible Translators for their ministry roles. Support raising is not about money — it’s about prayerfully inviting people everywhere to participate in what God is doing to fulfill His mission.

We provide training to help you:

  • Gain confidence in communicating the Biblical foundation for living on support, asking others to invest, and understanding “The God Ask.”
  • Learn best practices and gain confidence in sharing your presentation.
  • Rehearse with your peers and make real calls for appointments.
  • Experience the value of meeting face to face with people and asking for support.
  • Discover how to cultivate lasting relationships with your supporters.

We will work with you to develop a budget based on your ministry role, where you’re going, and your family’s personal needs. Our goal is for you to be adequately funded to maximize the fruitfulness of your ministry and your family.
