92 Chinese Christian Leaders At Underground Training Respond To Missions Call


We are so amazed how God has continued to bless this ministry!

92 leaders from 25 different churches attended our recent underground leadership training in China.

Our team of local and foreign missionaries set up every aspect of the training, and we were so incredibly proud to see each of them excel in their giftings. We also had a chance to introduce all 6 of our outreach centers to the Christian leadership in attendance. We do believe that within 5 years, Within Reach Global will be over 75% funded from within, by Chinese churches, businessmen and individuals.

“We are so happy to hear what your team is doing to reach the unreached,” said Pastor Li. “I really want to have our church get behind this ministry!”

Within Reach Global is passionate about reaching unreached people groups in Southeast Asia, and we are continually trying to reimagine how we can create an even greater impact.

We have found that by hosting underground trainings for Christian pastors and leaders, we are able to both multiply our efforts among the unreached world as well as pioneer indigenous Christian movement by empowering local Christian leadership with a Great Commission mindset.

This has been exciting for us!

We were told that only 30 leaders would be coming to the training, but were surprised when 92 of China’s Church leaders showed up. 25 different churches were represented. It was a powerful time of worship, prayer and training with subjects like The Art Of Influence and The Master Plan Of Evangelism.

A wealthy business woman allowed us to use her beautiful art gallery as the undisclosed meeting place. It was one of the most beautiful settings we have ever done an underground training at. China is changing dramatically!

Pastor Richard West, one of our partner pastors was the main speaker, and challenged the leaders to bring the gospel to the remaining unreached world in and around China.

“God is going to move through China powerfully,” Pastor Rich said. “God is positioning China. He’s going to pour his Spirit out, and we get to be a part of that! You are going to see some great and amazing things that God is going to do here. The world is going to have its eyes on China. Believe it. God’s going to do it, and you can be part of it!”


Please pray for us as we go to areas where the name of Jesus is still not known. Please pray that God would raise up more Chinese churches to take part in accomplishing the great remaining task of taking the message of Jesus to unreached communities. We need your prayers. We need your support. We want you to be a part of what God is doing in the nations, and we pray that this update would inspire you to be a voice for those who are voiceless.
