Intensives

Available for individuals and groups, these trips focus on intense, hands-on introduction to church planting work among unreached people groups. Participants join a Live Dead team for a week-plus to participate in church planting among the unreached. This includes intercession, training, interaction with unreached peoples, and gospel outreach. Throughout the course of the trip, participants will get a sense of the beauty and challenges of following Jesus in areas where Live Dead teams serve.

Internships

Internships typically run for two months (May and June). The goal is to expose interns to missionary life on a Live Dead team, to develop basic skills for cross-cultural ministry, and to provide space for interns to explore a call to longer-term service. We focus on group and individual pursuit of God, team life, study of local religions, language and culture, and the proclamation of the gospel among the unreached. Participants get a closer look at the life and operation of a church planting team, and see the need for God to call more laborers to the harvest fields.

During the two years, you will experience the value and practice of abiding as an individual and with your team; linguistic and cultural fluency; the practice of evangelism and gospel proclamation among the people around you; the study of missiology, local religions, Scripture, and church planting; an intentional process of discipleship; and the benefit of learning to live in community and to work as a team.
