Mission and Vision of Pioneer Association

Our mission is to address the problems in society caused by excess alcohol consumption and drug usage.

We do this through:

  • Faith and prayer
  • Self denial
  • Example
  • ctivities based on presenting alternatives to individuals, particularly the young
  • Advocacy

Our vision – based on the love in the Heart of Christ, as expressed in The Gospels – is to help to build a society where people live to their full potential and alcohol can be enjoyed in moderation avoiding the ills that arise in society from excess in its use.
