Be our Friend

Become a Pioneer Friend

People in pioneering mission need others to come alongside them in understanding, friendship, prayer and financial support. We’d like to invite you to become a CMS pioneer friend.

What is a Pioneer Friend?

When you sign up we’d love to hear how you think you might be able to support. We have friends who are mentors, who have hosted for meals, who have taught sessions, who have helped with press releases. Two of the most obvious ways of support are prayer and finance.


We’ll send a monthly email update especially for pioneer friends. To be notified of posts to this website as they happen, go to the Blog and sign up to “Follow the blog” in the right hand column. If you look at the Students section of this website you can see the current students to pray for.

We promise we won’t email you other updates more than once a month! If you don’t do electronic communication we can send you newsletters in the post.


We are looking to develop a financial support base for the training. Most of the pioneers do not have access to funding – they are paying their own way, often while starting something from nothing with very few resources. The increases in university fees will add pressure. So we are trying to keep course fees as low as we can.

Would you be able to give a regular donation to invest in mission and the future? We aim to raise £20,000 initially. That sounds a lot but it could be reached by, say, 20 people giving £50 a month and 25 giving £20 a month!


We also have an annual meal for CMS pioneer friends where you can meet some of the pioneers and one another and hear how it’s all going, and we produce an annual report.

To sign up simply send us your name and email (see below) – or you can set up a Direct Debit straight away.

Thank you.
