Since the reopening of China in the late 1980s, millions of East Asian people have moved into every corner of the globe. Today, East Asia is providing much of the intellectual, economic and skilled labour for the rest of the world. In response to this incredible movement, God has invited us to develop ministries focusing on three strategic areas.
One area is working alongside Asian churches in Canada to help mobilize their members for mission, thereby impacting their neighbourhoods, the Chinese diaspora and all of God’s world. We also engage Chinese-Canadian believers in short-term mission opportunities to Asia and beyond. As well, for over 20 years our Field Staff have helped plant churches among the Asian diaspora in Latin America. We have also reached out to and discipled graduate students from East Asia who are studying in Western Europe. The vast majority of these students will assume leadership roles within Chinese society after they return home. Their exposure to the Christian faith and fellowship equips them for leadership within the Church in their home country.
Lastly, God has opened many doors for us to offer fellowship, social and educational assistance, crisis response and Christian scholarship. We feel called and are blessed to respond to these opportunities at this critical time of church growth in East Asia.
