1.4 billion people

2.5 percent know Jesus

Live Dead Chinese World exists to establish churches among the unreached people groups of the Chinese world. We place a special emphasis on four main categories: Buddhism, Islam, folk religion, and secularism. Church planting is accomplished by local ministry teams living among unreached peoples, communicating the message of faith, and making disciples. Live Dead Chinese World serves in the midst of 1.4 billion Chinese people around the world.

A Global Phenomenon

The impact of the Chinese world, with a history dating back 3,000 years, is vast. Today, the Chinese people comprise approximately 20 percent of the world’s total population, and their global influence and migration is massive. There are as many as 42 million Chinese living around the globe from Iceland to Australia and from Brazil to Sweden. No matter where you are there is opportunity to engage the Chinese world.


Of the 1.4 billion Chinese more than 92 percent are still spiritually lost, most of whom have no access to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Within the Chinese world there are more than 460 unreached people groups.

Still Without Access

These people are caught in the most difficult of spiritual traps including animism, Buddhism, Daoism, Islam, and secularism. The Chinese world also lives under some of the harshest religious restrictions and monitoring ever experienced.


Live Dead Chinese World is committed to planting the church among these unreached people groups no matter how difficult the task may be. Live Dead Chinese World teams are finding creative ways to live among and serve these people around the world, introducing them to the good news of Jesus Christ.

Our Teams

For more than 100 years we have been actively engaging the Chinese world. We have teams serving some of the most spiritually dark and gospel resistant people groups in the Chinese world. Our teams possess expertise in Chinese history, culture, language, and religions, as well as how to share the gospel and plant churches among the unreached peoples of the Chinese world.

We would love to have you join the Live Dead Chinese World. You can partner with us through:


Pray for the 1.4 billion spiritually lost and over 460 unreached people groups of the Chinese world. Pray for the teams actively serving among them.


You can give a one-time gift or make a recurring donation to a Live Dead Chinese World team.


Opportunities exist for short-term trips assisting a team or long-term commitment to serve on a team.

Plain Sight

Due to rigorous restrictions within the Chinese world, our teams do not serve in the open. Rather, we are hidden in plain sight. We take advantage of creative ways to gain access to the people of the Chinese world. Some teams own businesses; some teach; and some have various other entry points. The opportunities are only limited by our lack of creativity. We focus on the unreached people of the Chinese world. We are committed to serving in teams and utilizing out-of-the-box strategies and methods to gain access and communicate the gospel. Our teams may not look like conventional teams of the past, but they are doing whatever is necessary to take the truth of Jesus Christ to people who have never heard.

The Call

More than 460 unreached people groups in the Chinese world have never heard the gospel of Jesus Christ. Will you answer the call to take the gospel to the Chinese world?
