ChinaSource Connect—Bringing People Together

Connecting people is central to the mission of ChinaSource. This autumn we are creating a new way to connect with those whom we serve. I hope you can join me at one of our ChinaSource Connect events. I’ll be sharing about my upcoming book, China’s Urban Christians: A Light That Cannot Be Hidden. You’ll have a chance to meet other members of the ChinaSource team, as well as friends in your city who share your passion for China.

Brent Fulton
President, ChinaSource

Partnership. Collaboration. Network.

These are all words that describe the heart of what we do at ChinaSource.

In supporting the work of individuals and ministries, we are passionate about bringing together diverse groups of people to explore new and creative opportunities of serving together—all to further strengthen the church in China.

Traditionally we’ve done this through conferences and consultations. This autumn we want to invite those of you in Hong Kong and Beijing to join us for a ChinaSource Connect event—a less formal gathering of friends, supporters, and ministry partners.

Each of these Connect events will have members of the ChinaSource board and team, engaging in dialogue about current issues and opportunities for involvement.

If you are interested in joining us, please send an email to and we’ll send you the necessary details.

We look forward to seeing you.

Ways to Pray

  • Christians in China are growing in their vision for world missions. Pray for members of the ChinaSource team who have opportunities in the coming weeks to help equip Chinese believers in obeying the Great Commission. 
  • Pray for “ChinaSource Connect” events being held in Hong Kong and Beijing this autumn as a way of acquainting Christians in these cities with the work of ChinaSource.
  • The autumn issue of ChinaSource Quarterly looks at the changing role of foreign Christian workers in China. May the Lord use this issue to help guide agency leaders and workers as they plan for the future.
  • Continue to pray for China’s leaders as they draft legislation that will likely have far-reaching implications for the church and ministry in China.
