DESCRIPTION

On the surface, Taiwan appears to be affluent, prosperous, and technologically advanced. But if you go a bit deeper, you will find a nation that is also struggling with idol worship, intense social pressure, and much lostness. While there is an appearance of religious freedom, strong ancestral traditions and Buddhism has a stronghold among the majority of the Taiwanese. All this to say is that the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ is very much in work and displaying the power to save to the millions of people who live on this beautiful island. The work that you will participating in is assisting a local church in establishing a college ministry at one of many college campuses in Southern Taiwan. We desire to see the collegians to not only hear but to be saved by the Gospel. Many collegians are facing pressure that has caused depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. We also hope to serve you by providing other opportunities to serve in a variety of contexts. Whether it is meeting with other local churches, other believers, or community ministries, we desire to introduce and give an opportunity for a broad experience. Lastly, we desire for your love for His Word and Christ to deepen and mature through your time on the island. Through intentional evangelism, discipleship, and service, we are praying God will bless you with a deeper knowledge of Him and a genuine experience of His grace.
