Proclaiming the Truth with New Media
Our world has more Chinese speakers than any other language, the majority of whom live in a country where the government restricts Western mission organizations from working there. But the Gospel can’t be stopped. God is doing wonders through the local Chinese Church, and despite the government’s best efforts, the Christian faith is taking root in China.
Most recently, our Chinese ministry team is pleased to launch its first full-length book in the New Songs of Wanderers print resource series, The Reason for You《为何是我》. This collection of 40 testimonies from Chinese believers highlights the voices of today’s Chinese youth in proclaiming the Gospel to their own generation.
Available in the U.S. in August 2018, this beautifully designed book makes a great gift for Chinese students studying in North America. With your heart and their stories, we will speak to a new generation of Chinese young people. Watch the video below to learn more about the book, or visit this page to request a copy for yourself!

A Story From the Chinese Ministry
Readers of our Today devotional recently received an invitation to send messages to fellow devotional readers in China.
“When COVID-19 first hit China, I heard firsthand accounts from our Chinese ministry team about how the pandemic was devastating the country and its people,” said Rev. Jeff Bulthuis, Today’s managing editor. “So we asked Today readers to send an encouraging message to believers in China.”
“I’ve been amazed by how God has worked since then,” Jeff added.
last year we distributed more than 23,000 print materials at colleges, conferences, and at other events where Chinese-speaking disciplers and seekers were present
More than 700,000 online readers access The Chinese Today every month
Last year, in addition to our daily devotional videos, we created 21 new videos to engage Christians in their faith
“We pray that we can become a team that is always learning, always growing, and always striving for excellence.”
