China Outreach Ministries shares Christ's love with Chinese students and scholars from North American campuses, serving them, reaching them with the Good News, discipling them, and helping them become godly leaders for Christ who share their faith with others. We focus on “Giving Christ to China's Future Leaders” by serving them in loving, practical ways; leading them to faith in Christ; teaching and discipling them; and equipping them to effectively live out their faith in their families, communities and professions. Each year, we send transformed Christian leaders back to China who are prepared and committed to being ambassadors of the Gospel for their own people and culture.
