Take heart! I have overcome the world. — King Jesus
Below you’ll find English translations of our Chinese small group trainings. They’re all designed for two things:
- Individual & community transformation and/or skill acquisition, rather than mere knowledge transfer.
- Reproducibility. They’re easy to take part in and easy to lead, with low-or-no dependency on church/ministry professionals.
Feel free to use and share!

How to Read the Bible For All Its Worth — Small Group Study Guide

The Availability of Jesus’ Kingdom
[Coming soon…] Faithfully and accessibly conveying Jesus’ announcement of the availability of the Kingdom of God to Chinese hearts and minds. Communicating Gospel narratives that more naturally resonate within Eastern (and biblical!) worldviews and cultures, rather than merely translating distinctly Western gospels into Mandarin.
Website Accessibility in China
None of these sites are blocked in China (yet), but websites hosted on foreign servers occasionally temporarily fail to load, especially during sensitive political anniversaries and events. When this happens, try switching between internet service providers (switch between data and WiFi or find other WiFi), or wait an hour or two (or a day or three) before trying again. Web browsers like Safari or Firefox work better than WeChat. Making sure the https:// is in the address bar also sometimes helps.
