XJ: East Asia
Engage one of the largest unreached countries in the world on this trip to East Asia. You’ll receive training from local church planters on how to share the gospel cross-culturally, and come back equipped to live missionally in your everyday life. Most people you’ll talk to do not have much faith in any religion and are in need of true hope; be a part of introducing them to the hope that we have in Jesus. There is a growing church here, so you’ll likely have opportunities to disciple and encourage new believers.
On this trip, you will:
- See and work with the underground church
- Disciple new believers
- Meet people and share the gospel
- Teach English to locals
