Arab World Vision

The heart behind our training teams is to see the Church established in 33 gateway cities across the Arab world, then in every city over a million people, and beyond that in every unreached people group over 100,000. To accomplish this, we need workers that are well trained in church planting.

Each training team has two primary goals:

1. To plant churches among Arab Muslims.
2. To train team leaders and team members to plant churches across the Arab world.

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.

2018 Opportunities:
May 13-June 30, 2018 (Cairo; Cost $3,000 + Airfare)
May 15-June 30, 2018 (Morocco)

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

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.
