ChinaSource is delighted to partner with OSCAR, which stands for One Stop Center for Advice and Resources. The UK-based website offers both in-person and online courses, including the British Culture Orientation course. Joann Pittman recently spoke with Mike Frith to find out about this course and how churches can use it to help diaspora Chinese Christians.

ChinaSource is pleased to partner with Christianity Today (CT) to help inform global Christians about the church in China and tell the stories of God’s faithfulness to his people. Joann Pittman recently connected with Song (Sean) Cheng, Christianity Today’s Asia editor to learn more about how and why CT is covering China and to learn of some of the unique initiatives that he is involved with.
