East Asia’s Peoples

Find out how God is working

in the lives of people

throughout East Asia.

As the global Body of Christ, we are called to partner together to see the good news of Jesus Christ in all its fullness shared with all of East Asia’s people.

Today, we partner with global and East Asian churches in gospel work among the nearly 2 billion people in East Asia who do not know Jesus. Could you share the good news in places where it still needs to be seen and heard?
