The church in East Asia has multiplied and matured, and they are ready to take the gospel to the rest of the region’s unreached peoples and places. Your gift to this ministry will help gather East Asian churches into cohorts which develop missionary training programs to send indigenous missionaries to fulfill the Great Commission. Believers access most of this region’s unreached peoples and places through gateway centers, natural gathering places to locate Cross-Cultural Missionary (CCM) cohorts. The cohorts will also facilitate churches working together to train, send, receive, and vet missionaries to engage all unreached peoples and places with a church-planting strategy.
More than six hundred people groups and places in this region do not yet have a healthy, reproducing church. The objective of this giving opportunity is to see healthy reproducing churches established among all East Asia’s unreached peoples and places with Christ and his Word as their foundation. Give today to train and send out local believers, so no more unreached peoples or places to exist in East Asia.
From the skyscrapers of Hong Kong to the vast plains of Mongolia, East Asia is rich with 5,000 years of history and a bold vision for the future. This region, comprised of China, Japan, Mongolia, North and South Korea, and Taiwan, represents one-fourth of the world’s population and houses four of the world’s most populous cities.
Though East Asia has contributed some of the world’s most revolutionary ideas and valuable technology, the name of Christ remains unknown to hundreds of millions among its 213 unreached and unengaged people groups. Buddhism, ancestor worship, animism, Daoism, Hinduism, and Islam blind the people to Christ's truth. Only a tiny percentage among these East Asian people groups are Christian.
Pray that great breakthroughs will occur so that many of these yet-unreached people will call on the name of the Lord and be saved.
