Chinese Diaspora Ministry

di~as~por~a = the scattered, the dispersion of any people from their original homeland

"He determined...the exact place where they should live...so that men would seek him." (Acts 17:26-27)

AS AN EMERGING GLOBAL SUPERPOWER, CHINA'S INFLUENCE WILL ONLY INCREASE OVER TIME. 

WHAT CHINA BECOMES IN THE FUTURE WILL DEPEND TO A VERY LARGE DEGREE ON WHAT BECOMES OF THE CHINESE STUDENTS STUDYING OVERSEAS TODAY.

Every year 100,000 Chinese leave China to study abroad (this figure is estimated to increase to 300,000 by 2020!).  Hundreds of these are designated future leaders purposely sent overseas to gain international exposure and to get a world-class education at the world's best universities.

Deng Xiaoping as a student in FranceDeng Xiaoping, leader of the Communist Party of China (1978-92)Most of China's future leaders will emerge from the thousands of scholars who have studied overseas.  These former Chinese leaders both studied in France. 

Zhou Enlai, first Premier of the People's Republic of China (1949-7

What might China be like today if these leaders had heard and come to know the love of God while students in Paris?

CURRENTLY, MORE THAN 3 MILLION CHINESE STUDENTS, SCHOLARS AND THEIR FAMILIES ARE SCATTERED ABROAD, TEMPORARILY LIVING OUTSIDE THEIR HOMELANDS - ALL AGES, FROM EVERY PART OF CHINA.

The vast majority of these Chinese arrive overseas without any previous exposure to the gospel.  For many of them, going overseas means freedom for the first time.  Any yet these new freedoms and challenges cause many to seek for purpose and meaning in their lives - and become open to the gospel.

Sadly, most international students do not visit the home of someone in their host nation, or make new friends from the country they are visiting.  Notwithstanding, it is now widely estimated that of those who go abroad each year, 10,000 return to China as believers!  However, these "returnees" face many challenges to their faith:

  • pressure to renounce their faith and marry unbelievers or compromise morally in a competitive business climate
  • being resented because of their overseas experience
  • making Christian friends and finding a good church back in China
  • accepting and being accepted by local churches.

We seek to equip churches in reaching out to returnees and discipling effectively those who become believers, so that on their return to China they can overcome these challenges and flourish spiritually and bring a godly and kingdom influence, in whatever spheres of influence God gives them.
