TGC International Outreach is engaged in Theological Famine Relief for the Global Church. We create Relief Projects by working with translators, publishers, and printers here in North America as well as overseas, and donate these resources through global missions networks. Through your generous gifts, these projects enable us to strengthen thousands of church leaders in Asia, Africa, and South America.
Gospel In Life is an eight-week course on the gospel and how it is lived out in all of life— first in our hearts, then in community, and out into the world. Week 1 opens the course with the theme of the city: our home now, the world that is. Week 8 closes the course with the theme of the eternal city: our heavenly home, the world that is to come. In between we will look at how the gospel changes our hearts (weeks 2 and 3), changes our community (weeks 4 and 5), and changes how we live in the world (weeks 6 and 7).
We will be partnering with a Christian publisher within China to produce 12,000 copies of this book. Additionally, they will release the accompanying video with translated dubbing online for free access.
Read about our past work in legal Christian publishing within China.
China, the largest nation in the world, is home to the fastest growing church movement in Asia. While Chinese nationals have emigrated throughout the world, over a billion people still live in China and its provincial nations. With 1 in every 5 people in the world reading the Chinese language there is a need for strong, biblically sound Christian books, theological training materials, and discipleship materials.
The church, both registered and un-registered, is rapidly expanding and yet these pastors are in need of good study and training materials and Chinese doctrinal books that will help them lead and guide their congregations in times of difficulty and in times of great blessing. Without good materials, false teachings, error, and division have stunted the growth of the Church in China.
