IMG_1239The Gospel in China is a blog maintained by Jake, a missionary working in China’s underground church movement with Project China since 2007. Project China works to plant indigenous local Chinese churches and train new Chinese pastors, especially in the DongBei (northeast) region of China. The topics you will find often addressed on this blog include…

1. The place of the foreign missionary in Chinese missions (example post)

2. The needs and processes of indigenous church-planting (example post)

3. The power of a proclamation ministry characterized by boldness (example post)

4. The challenges unique to making disciples of Christ in China (example post)

Sprinkled throughout these posts, too, are bits of news from the ministry there in Northeast China. So stay tuned to learn about this family and team’s work, to be updated with prayer requests from the front lines, and to develop your own heart and strategy for the largest nation on earth.


For those who desire a better understanding of China than is provided by reading blogs, Project China also provides internship opportunities for students, singles, and young couples. These internships allow Western believers to experience firsthand the challenges and blessings of ministry in unregistered churches. For more information, read about the Project China internships here.

    If you haven’t read “Hudson Taylor’s Spiritual Secret” I would love to get you some copies. They will be an encouragement to you. You are continuing the very work that Hudson Taylor started in the China Inland Mission. I know who you are (at least two of you!) as I sang in your wedding, J and S. We are praying for you!

    I have been following your blog since first stumbling upon it some months ago and I am thrilled to tell you that my husband and I are soon to follow in your footsteps! We hope to begin teaching English with the ELIC (www.elic.org) in the Fall of 2009. We would love to ask you some questions!

      Did you end up teaching with elic? If so what have your experiences been regarding opportunities to share the gospel while there?
      Thanks and God Bless,

    For at least six months I have been in continual prayer for China. I felt God showed me a field white with rice ready for harvest (seen this somewhat in person as I have lived in rice country in South Texas) – the field spread all across China. I felt God tell me that the seeds for this harvest had been planted by those early missionaries in the 1930’and 40’s and that though it had been a long time he’d not forgotten or failed to answer the prayers of those early dedicated missionaries. I am so happy to find some one working in China. I will enjoy reading the rest of your blogs about your experiences. I have been wanting to find a way to work in China myself but know it is very difficult. I especially feel called to Tibet (near Lhasa). I don’t know how I would be able to do this but have at least chosen to dedicate time each day to pray for the people of China and Tibet.

    Hello, I’ve recently started subscribing to your posts and am particularly interested in getting involved with mission opportunities in China. I am currently an English teacher in Taicang just north of Shanghai but have a lot of time on my hands. Do you know of possible opportunities in the Taicang area I could hook up with or where to even get started?

    Hi, I’ve recently been contemplating ministry/mission in China, and feel the call to Shanghai in particular. I was born in Shanghai and I’m part of a Chinese church in Australia. Could you please email me at jimmymcheng@hotmail.com. I would like to learn about your experiences and if you have any contacts in Shanghai. thanks. Jimmy

    Thank you for this blog, it is both informative and inspiring. I am interested in bringing the gospel to China. My path is by no means conventional and I would appreciate your advice in helping me choose the right path. Please contact me by e-mail at your earliest convenience and I will provide further details.

    I am currently living in China. My wife and I are and have been ESL teachers in the Chinese public schools. We have lived in Shandong province the last 10 months. We are moving to Qingdao by the Fathers direction and joining a church there. But I was wondering if you had any other connections in Qingdao? I appreciate your words and encouragement. The last 2 years of being overseas teaching and seeking to share the Son with others has been difficult. I would like to talk more if you have the time. Blessings.

    I found your blog tonight and have read with great interest. I am a 41 year old southern baptist woman family physician in rural Missouri. I love the Chinese people and dream of the Gospel spread wide among them. I have two Bio sons and a 7 year old daughter! adopted from the special needs program in China (she is from Guangdong). I was in China in 2007 and spent time doing medical work with orphans and bringing supplies to a foster home in Qinyundian. Since then I have been an adoption advocate and worked as medical consultant for organizations doing orphan work in China. I’ve dreamed for a long time of doing medical mission work in China. I wanted to start with short term trips to establish relationships etc with the thought of a longer term situation. ” someday”. Reading this blog I am impressed by the desire not to be some kind of adventure seeker and the concern I might me misguided in these feelings of calling. With medical training and sincere love for God, the gospel, and the Chinese, is that enough? I have dabbled in Mandarin for several years and have slight aptitude with much desire. I am not young and not trained in missions. Do you think I could be useful in China or should I be a prayerful sender? Blessings in all that you are doing!! Lori

    I have an 8 year old son who is feels called to China as a missionary. As a family we are attempting to lay the ground work of preparation for him. He is taking Mandarin Chinese by Rosetta Stone and reads anything he can about China. We have read him all the books about missionaries put our by YWAM. Do you know of any other resources that may be available to educate him on culture, history, current missionary work, etc.? Any information would be wonderful! Blessings from a mommy in Texas, USA

    • davidxing February 6, 2013 at 7:26 am #

      hey Laura, can you also send me relevant resources that you currently have in training up your child? that would be great!!

    I feel as I have been called into missions work and God has told me to go to China. I’m currently a freshman in college studying to be a christian counselor. Your blog is so inspirational to me. I read everything I can about China, I’m currently planning to study abroad there next spring to learn the culture and language. I pray for your safety and that the Lord continues to move within you.

    • davidxing February 6, 2013 at 7:24 am #

      i am also really keen on CHinese missions. Do you mind linking me with relevant websites similar to this champion here? I just stumbled across this blog and its amazing!

    Just came across your blog while searching the mission statements of various Christian orgs in China. We are located in Hong Kong, and have been entering China for 25 years, carriying the message by first Bibles and teaching materials, then MP3 players, then bringing pastors and teachers from the US to house pastors inside China. We have opportunities for interns to learn and for short term missionaries to experience. We are strategically located near the border, and have housing facilities for groups to come and make crossings, as well as for teachers / ministers to stay before going inside. If anyone is interested, I can be contacted.

    I am currently having my research on China as a requirement in our subject intro to missions. I am a Bible school student and my heart is in World missions. I’m on my second year now. As I am browsing the net , I just accidentally came across your blog. I’m encouraged to learn more about China and I’ll start praying for it as one of my destination someday. As for now I’ll be preparing myself for a great ministry in the future.
    Your life and your passion in the ministry is so inspiring. 🙂
    Hope to have boldness and courage like yours.
    Continue to share and spread the love of God.
    I’ll be praying for you. GOD BLESS!

    I am sponsoring a child in China through Holt International. I contacted Holt International to find out if my child will get to hear the gospel. They were adamant in saying no, because it is against the law in China, and they are not allowed to do that… so, I plan to go with a friend to China for about a week so that I can meet with my child and her family for about a week and drop off a Bible. I have a few questions I would like to have answered: Where could I find a translator to travel with us or to meet with us? Is there any chance I could give you a gospel tract and have you translate it to chinese so that I can print off a chinese one? What would be the most practical way to share the gospel with this family? Do the homes have heavy security systems like are there cameras or voice recorders in the homes that the government listens in on in order to control citizens? And, when caught, what will happen to my friend and I, like will we be thrown in prison, tortured, or killed?
