History

More than a decade ago, Christian mission leaders were asking questions of each other about China. What might happen if China opened up to the Gospel like the Iron Curtain countries did in the early 1990s? Which organization would devote itself to addressing the opportunity and serving as a catalyst and connector for effective evangelical ministry in China?

As a result of these discussions, ChinaSource was founded in 1997 as a cooperative effort of the Evangelical Fellowship of Mission Agencies, Interdenominational Foreign Missions Association, World Evangelical Fellowship and the Billy Graham Center, who foresaw the need for a non-profit organization devoted to being a catalyst and connector among China-serving leaders.

ChinaSource is blessed to have a unique role as a convener among Christian leaders who share our passion for the people of China. Our purpose is to strengthen the work of individual ministries and to contribute to the greater goal of creating lasting change through Kingdom impact in China.

Through conferences and consultations in Asia and the United States, through publications distributed around the world, and through research studies and other resources that inform the work of ministries both large and small, ChinaSource serves hundreds of China-focused churches, organizations and individuals. In recent years we have harnessed these networks and resources to develop strategic initiatives that address critical issues in China. Carrying out these initiatives with a number of like-minded partners, ChinaSource strives to holistically impact lives forever through the saving grace of Christ.
