MINISTRY FOCUS

Buddhists

Be salt and light to those who have either Buddhist worldviews, or are devoted followers of Buddhism. Most of them are in East Asia.

Diaspora / International Students

Waves of migration have scattered 85 million East Asians across the world. Seize opportunities to share Christ with them in your home country.

Muslims

Love our Muslim neighbors as ourselves. Serve among 260 million of these friends in the East Asian backyard, and beyond.

Professionals

Be a gospel witness to those in regular, secular jobs, challenging and equipping them to follow Christ in the workplace.

Young Adults and Students

Befriend young adults and tertiary students, journey with them as they make the transition into adulthood and nurture them into life-long disciples of Christ.

Children and Youth

Serve in a Sunday School or youth group. Minister to children with special needs or teach Third Culture Kids. The opportunities to care and point the next generation to Christ are aplenty.

Animists

Animism is a complex belief system where everything that a person is, does and interacts with is interpenetrated with the spiritual. Help people influenced by animism to know the truth that lead to true freedom in Christ.

Followers of Chinese Traditional Religions

Many East Asians practice a complex, syncretistic blend of Buddhism with traditional folk beliefs steeped in Taoism, Ancestor Worship and Confucianism.

Poor

Spiritual and physical transformation found in the love of Christ is especially needed even amongst these least reached who live on and below the poverty line.

Elderly

Often neglected and forgotten, the elderly urgently need to experience the love of Christ in their twilight years.

Urban

Ministry in the urban setting includes more than reaching the upwardly mobile urbanites. It also needs to serve the neglected, marginalized urban poor.

Tribal

The Manobo of the Philippines, the Naxi of China, the Wa of Myanmar, and the Jorai of Cambodia are just some of the unreached tribal people groups of East Asia.

Rural

Residents in rural areas are often trapped in the poverty cycle. They have limited opportunities for education, poor access to healthcare and livelihoods that are often dependent on the harvest of their cash crops.
