Connect with SEND through this short form
SEND targets the unreached peoples of China. As many young adults leave the villages to find work, SEND seeks to evangelize these minority peoples in major cities, disciple, and train them in partnership with local believers. SEND workers then mentor them as they return to their villages to reach extended family and friends who are totally outside the reach of the gospel.
In a culture of rapid economic and social change, families are being torn apart as the young adults leave home in search of work, often returning only once a year. Grandparents raise grandchildren without their parents. Young adults are marked with a general sense ofpurposelessness, loneliness, and lack of direction. Jobs are scarce and don’t pay much.
In the next five years, SEND China will engage work among five unreached people groups in order to see thriving bodies of believers.
