We have three church planting teams serving in three different areas of Taiwan, among the Taiwanese in Chiayi and the Hakka in Miaoli. We also have a team reaching out to the Vietnamese workers in Tanzi. Generally we employ a more traditional method of church planting.
We have a new ministry focus on campus outreach, hoping to establish disciple making movements among the students at local universities. Starting English clubs on campus has been an effective method to build connections, and we hope to expand from there.
Taiwan is home to the largest Chinese population outside of China. Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and ancestor worship have shaped the Chinese mind for centuries. Taiwan folk religion ensnares many in superstition and darkness. Pursuit of wealth and education pressures families, sometimes leading to disillusionment, loneliness, mental illness, suicide. Gambling and computer gaming are destructive addictions.
In the next ten years, SEND Taiwan hopes to:
- Vision 119 - we want to plant 60 churches along Highway 1 and Highway 19 in Taiwan.
