By March 11, 2003

(China)–Meanwhile, despite persecution against Christians in China, Church leaders in China have ambitious evangelism training goals. According to Evangelism Explosion’s Buddy Gaines they held six clinics last year, but 10 are planned this year. Gaines says what’s more exciting is the local church is catching the vision. “They are in the process of building, I think it’s, a six story building. Which will be a training center. A portion of the that building will be dedicated for the Evangelism Explosion training. And, their goal is to bring in pastors from all of the provinces, train them, and then send them back to do this ministry.” Gaines says funding is needed to help with this project. “To give scholarships. And, then of course the adapting the materials to the Chinese culture there. We’re printing new materials. They’re setting up and office and they need some office equipment. So, we’re looking at a $75,000 project for this year.”
