Short Term Missions

Would you like to share the Gospel with people who have never heard before? Do you have a heart for the Asian culture and people? Here is what you can do to help us share the Gospel in Taiwan.

Here is what a visit to work with us might look like:

  • Developing relationships in English Classes on University Campuses
  • Cultural and relational activities with students where you will build relationships and have opportunities to share your life and Jesus
  • Outreach events in partnership with our local church to connect unbelieving students with local believers
  • Personal meetings with students to share the Gospel
  • Sports activities with students to develop relationships for cultural understanding whereby you gain opportunities to share the Gospel

When should you come to Taichung?
There isn’t a bad time to come to Taichung, but there are a few times when it would be hard to engage in ministry. Please contact us to talk about the best time for you or your group.

What’s our strategy?
We are working primarily to evangelize university students and young adults.  One of our most important strategies is to connect and work with the local church, so we have spent the last four years developing our relationship with Taichung Baptist, a healthy, Bible believing and Gospel centered church. In addition to leading students to know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, we desire deeply for them to have a relationship with the local church. These dear brothers and sisters will become their family here in Taiwan long after we leave.

What impact will I have on your ministry and what impact will coming to Taiwan have on me and/or my team?
I hope you will help us accomplish what I stated above. We think of our ministry in terms of depth, not necessarily breadth. So we want to develop long term impact in places where we can have the most significant relationships rather than pursue a shotgun approach with little or no opportunity for ongoing relationships. In return, we hope you and or your team will experience an intense time of personal evangelism, an overwhelming sense of the lostness in the world, a great love and appreciation for Chinese culture, an understanding of how to adapt and live in a place where everything is done absolutely differently from what you are used to and see it as different and not wrong. As you return home, I hope to help you carry a sense of living as an alien (1 Peter) back to your own culture and think about what that looks like no matter where you end up in the world.

What happens after we leave?
We work closely with our church here and others that share a Bible believing evangelical passion for reaching students. We have a system for follow-up that connects students to local believers and does not only attach them to us, so if something happens to us, there is no disconnect. You will be able to participate in our church (although it is a completely Chinese speaking environment), as well as meet people from other churches we work with. We also have an English fellowship that is part of our Taiwanese church where you can experience worship with our expatriate friends and Taiwanese brothers and sisters.

Who should come to Taichung?
Pretty much anyone who has a heart for evangelism, loves people and an adventurous stomach!

So what are you waiting for? Contact us now and let’s start planning your mission to Taichung!
