Our primary goal is to evangelize university students and young adults, strengthening their relationship with Jesus Christ and the local church. We connect with the local churches, spending the last four years developing our relationship with Taichung Baptist. We desire deeply to develop our relationship with our dear Taiwanese brothers and sisters, as they will become the family continuing our mission, long after we leave. We focus on evangelizing university students and young adults, working through the local church to strengthening their relationship with Jesus Christ and disciple them.
Pretty much anyone who has a heart for evangelism, loves people and an adventurous stomach!
I hope you will help us accomplish what I stated above. We think of our ministy in terms of depth, not necessarily breadth. So we want to develop long term impact in place where we can have the most significant relationship rather than pursue a shotgun apporach with little or no opportunity for ongoing relationships.
In return, we hope you and or your team will experience an instense time of personal evangelism, an overwhelming sense of the lostness in our world, a great love and appreciation for Chinese culture, an understand of how to adapt and live in a place where everything is done absolutie different from what you are used to and see it as different and not worng. As you return home, I hope to help you carry a sense of living as an alien (1 Peter) back to you own culutre and think about what that looks like no matter where you end up in the world.
We work closely with out church here and others that share a Bible believeing 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 enviornment), as well as meeet 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 out expatriate friends and Taiwanese brothers and sisters.
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.
