Larry Hall was raised on the mission field by Rev. A. Walker and Nell Hall, long-time missionaries to the Chinese. In 1993, after nearly two decades in bank management. Larry received a clear call from the Lord preparing him to “move to Springfield and help world missions.” In 1999 the opportunity to obey that call opened and Larry became a missionary associate with AGWM Communications using the skills learned in the corporate world to help raise funds to help missionaries respond in times of disaster and crisis to spread the gospel, plant churches in new areas and strengthen existing national churches.
After serving for several years as missionary associate, the World Missions Executive Committee reappointed him as a Career missionary associate, opening the door to seek the support needed to continue these projects and also to begin to transition to efforts in restricted access countries that God has placed on his heart.
In August, 2011, God spoke to Larry again, this time specifically about being available to assist missionaries doing pioneer missions in difficult areas. Later when the Live Dead Africa team learned that Larry was willing to help, his availability was an answer to prayer.
Within days of hearing from the Lord about helping the Live Dead teams, AGWM leadership asked Larry to help meet the urgent deadline for the launch of the China Bible College. It was possible for both assignments to be engaged and for three years Larry served both the Live Dead Africa team while helping to launch China Bible College. Now Larry is assigned full time to Africa, helping Live Dead Africa and Africa’s Hope. The Live Dead initiative focuses on planting churches using teams who live among unreached people. Africa’s Hope facilitates training Spirit-filled biblically trained leaders who are the hope of Africa.
Larry is ordained with the Arkansas District.
Larry and Kathi Hall, married 44 years, have two daughters, Heidi (& Randy) Jumper and Hillary Hall, plus two darling granddaughters, Morganne and Bethany Jumper who live in Little Rock.
