Be part of a ministry to believing men in urban China, with a focus on building them up as healthy Christian husbands and fathers.
As we seek to impact China's cities for Christ, we long to work with local partners, and with them reach out to all sectors of society. Healthy families begin with spiritually healthy men, which leads to healthy marriages and healthy parent-child relationships.
There are many more believing women than men in the urban Chinese church. We long to see the men that are within the church have mature Christian brothers to live life alongside them, encouraging and discipling them, being role models and displaying gospel-centered marriage and parenthood to them. Through this, we long to see healthy communities of believers with a focus on long-term growth.
This large urban center in China is home to people from all over China. With modern conveniences, efficient public transportation, access to Western groceries, traffic congestion, high-rises and a massive population, living here is much like it would be in any global city... only, completely different! Be prepared for chaos, friendly people, delicious street food, and the hustle and bustle of one of the world's largest cities.
Apart from your regular everyday schedule (be it work, caring for your family, or language learning), in time you will be attending a local fellowship of believers and opening up your life to them, allowing them to learn from your life and relationships - the goods and the bads!
You may also be involved in:
- discipleship / mentoring meet-ups, which may include one-to-one bible-study and prayer
- running small-group bible study
- training other men in healthy families, and encouraging them to also consider discipling and training others
- A love for Jesus
- Healthy Christian walk
- Healthy Christian family life
- Enjoy working with people
- Willing to share of yourself and your life with others
