TAIWAN: tradition and technology

Taiwan is home to people straddling ancient Chinese traditions and hi-tech globalization. The combination of a hi-tech materialistic society with the entrenched traditional religion that combines ancestor worship with Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism is a barrier to spreading the Gospel. Christianity is well known for its service to society and active care for people in need, but there is a shortage of pastors and Christian leaders and workers. Additionally, the church in Taiwan has had very little penetration into rural areas and among the working class and poor people. TEAM is working with the Taiwanese church through planting of churches, camping and youth ministries, mentoring and leadership development, urban poor ministries, and Bible study training and development.

Initiatives

TEAM Taiwan missionaries are involved in a variety of ministry initiatives, and we continue to dream of even more. The common goal of all of our ministry work derives from our vision for Taiwan. We long to see "radically obedient followers of Jesus Christ who have a passion to make disciples."
