A praise report from our Chinese Ministries, for the birth of a new ministry – CBM in partnership with Carey Theological College (Vancouver) has agreed to launch an online Mandarin Masters of Pastoral Ministry (MPM) program, meant for training pastors for China and the Chinese diaspora. The growth of the Chinese churches world-wide has been unprecedented. Many Mandarin-speakers of mainland China backgrounds came to Christ and are eager to grow spiritually. However, churches are growing much faster than pastors can be found or trained, leaving a pressing need for better trained Christian workers. Please pray for this program and for how God can use this program as an avenue for true growth, and pray for our CBM Field Staff, John Chan, Rev. Tom Mei and Rev. Conrad Kwok who will be actively involved in this joint venture.
