Silk Road Opportunities to Go

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.

Give One Year

Giving a year is a great way to invest a portion of your life in ministering among unreached people groups and gaining the knowledge and skills necessary for that ministry while investigating a long-term calling. During a year with a Live Dead training team, 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.

Go Two Years

Going for two years gives further depth in ministry experience and learning to the one-year option. After completing a first year, you will have the opportunity to continue growing in linguistic and cultural fluency while sharpening your thinking about mission and Scripture and sharing Jesus with the unreached daily. 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.

Go Long

Interested in a career in missions? This option is for you. Missionaries with Live Dead start out on training teams to lay the same foundations listed under GO 2 YEARS before joining a church planting team for long-term ministry. During your time on a church planting training team, 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.
