Learn about our Team and Culture
At Pioneer Engage Church, we are not religious (coded language and wierd in-church behaviour) nor irreligious (low respect for Christian Scripture and other Christians). As non-religious, we are as normal in gathered settings as we are in the rest of life, fun to be around, and theologically /practically evangelical / charismatic.
