Fulfill Your Role in Africa

There are people all over Africa who have yet to have an adequate presentation of the gospel. We exist to solve that problem by helping people like you fulfill the role God is calling you to step into as He builds His church around the world.

People Unreached by the Gospel

There are still 867 people groups scattered throughout Africa, unreached by the gospel. There are 316 million people in Africa without an indigenous church amongst them. People are living and dying without ever having the opportunity to hear about the love and grace Jesus Christ is offering to them.

Why Live Dead Africa?

Live Dead Africa exists to mobilize, train, and equip teams to live among the unreached people groups in Africa with the goal of helping plant the indigenous church. Our vision is simple: see disciples made who, then led by the Holy Spirit, plant the church.

A Global Mission

Live Dead isn’t just focused on planting the church in Africa. We are a strategic initiative consisting of teams focused in different countries around the world, working together to see churches planted among unreached people groups. When you join a Live Dead team, you are not just joining a single group; you are joining a world-wide team working in strategic partnership to learn, grow, and accomplish the mission God has laid on our hearts, together.

Get Involved

We can partner together from anywhere in the world, to see God move around the world. Take the step today to partner with our teams and be a part of Live Dead Africa.

Take the Next Step: Go

Maybe you are called to not partner from where you are, but to take the next step and be a part of what’s happening where they are. God’s plan to see His church planted involves Him calling people like you to go. We want to partner with you and help you discern where He is calling you as you take this step of obedience.

After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb.

You can get involved in this effort to plan the Church where it does not yet exist.


Consider joining a group of people that will be praying for specific prayer needs for local churches and church plant teams in these countries.

Become a Missionary


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 intercession, training, interaction with unreached peoples, and gospel outreach.


Internships range from one to three months. 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.

Give a Year

This year is focused on learning culture, language, team life, and growing in your call as you allow Him to crystallize what He is asking of you long-term. Giving a year allows you to live among an unreached people group, developing the knowledge and skills necessary to operate in this type of ministry in a long-term calling.

Partner to Reach the Unreached

If not you, then who? We are all called to play a role in God’s mission to plant His church globally. What role is God calling you to step into?
