When the unreached live next door

When the unreached live next door

“Are you sure these people are from Maoxian county? This is my county, but I have never heard of this people group,” asked Jordan, postgraduate student at a Chinese university, during an Xplore study with CMM staff and other Chinese believers. Jordan is the only person in her family following Jesus, and one of the first in her area to commit to following Him. Instead of letting this isolate her, Jordan has instead allowed it to grow her passion for sharing the gospel with her family and her people. Born in southwest China, in a region dominated by Buddhism and animism, Jordan went her whole childhood without hearing the gospel in her mountain city, and probably still would not have heard if tragedy had not struck in her area. In 2008, a devastating earthquake hit Jordan’s city, killing thousands, and leaving many wounded and without homes. At this time, many nonprofits and aide organizations entered the region to help rebuild. It was then that Jordan met an aide worker who shared the gospel with her and watched God open her eyes to His heart and His truth. Later at her university, Jordan joined an Xplore study led by members of the CMM’s mobilization team in China and was eager to absorb whatever truth God had for her. Jordan gathered with two other Chinese Christians and two CMM mobilizers each week to walk through Xplore and discuss what God was teaching them. At the end of each lesson in Xplore, there is a small excerpt about an unreached people group that represents one of the five major world religions: Tribal/Animism,...

Support raising training in China equips national workers to fund their ministries

“I equated sharing with others about our financial situation as the same as asking others for money,” shared Josiah, a national Chinese missionary. “Asking others to support our financial needs would be seen by most as using man’s methods and not God’s methods. I saw support raising as unspiritual and thought that I should only pray to God to meet my needs.” This perspective has kept Josiah and countless other missionaries over the years from fruitful ministry. Support raising is consistently one of the biggest obstacles keeping laborers from the field, and it’s no different for the Chinese church. Because of a fear or misunderstanding of support raising, many would-be missionaries have either not obeyed God’s call or resigned themselves to live in poverty. At the same time, God has greatly blessed China over the past decade with unprecedented economic growth. Resources now exist within the Chinese church to send out missionaries to the unreached like never before. But connecting these resources to God’s mission will require a cultural shift in perspective within the Chinese church—in both givers and missionaries. Support Raising Solutions (SRS) is a ministry of the CMM dedicated to equipping ministry workers in personal support raising. In the past 10 years, SRS has equipped 15,000 ministry workers from more than a thousand organizations to raise their own support. In conjunction with our CMM mobilization team in China, SRS recently launched its first support raising training in the country. Fully translated into Chinese, the SRS Bootcamp training covers the biblical basis for support raising, as well as practical, hands-on ways to begin building and cultivating a support...
