Connecting the Church in Mission

Asia and Pacific

Asia and Pacific is the most populous region in the world with a land mass spanning 55 countries. In every country except the Philippines, Tonga, and Fiji, Christianity is a minority religion. Ecumenical relationships are also strong, including collaboration with the East Asia Christian Council and the Amity Foundation in China. Significant mission efforts include church development, pastoral training, health care, promotion of human rights, peace activities and humanitarian relief.
