Having many ethnic minorities and deep roots in Buddhism and Islam, western China remains a vast mission field and priority for Partners International. A second priority is urban China. Over the past 30 years, a whole generation has migrated from rural areas into the cities. Our strategies include leadership development, advancing evangelistic and development work in unreached parts of China, and building up ministries that are ministering to underserved socio-economic and religious groups such as urban professionals, college students, Muslims, and children. We also help our partners develop their organizational structure and ministry capacity, enhancing their long-term impact and sustainability.

Partners International was founded just over 70 years ago when we supported our first Chinese evangelist, Calvin Chao, after missionaries were imprisoned or kicked out of China in the 1940s. This began a cutting-edge movement of partnership with national believers that has defined our ministry for seven decades. China has gone through tremendous transformation over the past 30 years. The impact of urbanization, booming economic growth, migration, and drastic social change have been both positive and negative. These changes have polarized Chinese society, particularly in moral values and economic status. Today, Chinese believers are increasingly concerned for social issues and community development, and we continue to see promising mission leaders emerging with a vision for ministry to China and beyond.
