TEAM STRATEGY

Given its present spiritual renewal, fervent evangelism and explosive growth, the church in Hong Kong could soon become the greatest worker-sending body in the world. The immense task of training Chinese cross-cultural teams will require the establishment of more worker training elements. Another focus for work in Hong Kong is outreach to Chinese immigrants who pour into the area from the mainland, sometimes at the rate of 150 a day. Hong Kong churches have the opportunity to share the love of God with these people, help them to start new congregations and equip them to take the gospel into the surrounding region.
