Taipei, Taiwan:  July 14-16, more than 50 pastors and leaders convened on the campus of the Taiwan Nazarene Theological College, to hold their first Church Growth Conference in recent history.

The three-day event featured workshops on church planting, Nazarene Missions International, and communicating Christ through modern media, in addition to lively sessions of corporate praise, worship, and prayer.

“There is definitely a spirit of revival beginning to blow through the church in Taiwan,” shared Regional Communications Coordinator, Todd Aebischer, who taught some of the workshops.  “The excitement of the leadership towards expanding the church, for the mission of reaching the lost is evident.”

“During our 10 day visit to Taiwan, we had the opportunity to visit 18 churches,” continued Aebischer.  “Churches on the upper floors of high-rise buildings in down-town Taipei to churches tucked into the mountain regions of the far south of the country.  There is a hunger for new vision and methods of taking the Gospel to those who have never heard of the hope and peace found through Jesus Christ.”

Please continue to lift the more than 40 churches in Taiwan, their leaders, pastors, and members, as they follow our Lord in making Christlike disciples in their nation.
