China is experiencing a third diaspora. From South Africa to Ukraine, from Peru to Australia, 18 million Chinese have moved abroad legally, along with many others entering countries illegally, and have settled in 150 different countries since the reforms of 1978 through 2008.1 They are by no means a homogenous group. Professionals, business men and women, semi-skilled and unskilled workers, students and the wealthy, for a variety of reasons are leaving China, some for the short-term and others long-term.

Are those who leave China as Christians ministering to their countrymen and others? What about the diaspora Chinese church? This edition of the ChinaSource Quarterly looks at some of these issues.
