Children and Campus Ministries

(Continued from yesterday)

Yesterday we posted videos/photos for adult ministries; today we continue with children and campus ministries:

WHIZ (Wise, Happy, Intelligent, Zealous) kids Sunday School:

Teaching second graders English.

Teaching English in elementary school.

One thing very helpful about schools in Taiwan is that they are open to religious groups (Christian, Buddhist or other) who offer to help in teaching English, virtues or other subjects, both during regular class time or after school. If Evangelicals don’t seize the opportunity, cults and other religions will. We hope to reach the family through the children.

As to campus ministry, Taiwan has 111 universities and colleges spread across the island, so student ministry is very important in reaching the educated. Here we visited two out of five universities in Chiayi county:
1. National Chung Cheng University (ranked #13),
2. National Chiayi University (#38),
3. Wufeng University (#39),
4. Tatung Institute of Commerce and Technology (#73), and
5. Nanhua University (#75).

Chung Cheng University has close to 12,000 students. We visited a professor who was one of the organizers of the Christian fellowship. He estimated Christians comprised about 3% of the student body, higher than the percentage in Minxiong where the university is located.

Visiting an Associate Professor at National Chung Cheng University. Besides supervising grad students, he teaches an interesting course on Jewish Customs and Life Sciences based on the OT.

    Hi Pastor Ray,

    My name is Conrad and I’m a Taiwanese American Evangelical Christian. I’m currently serving as a missionary in Mongolia. One member of my church congregation (a Mongolian Christian) recently went to Nanhua university to study as a first year undergraduate. I’m trying to find an English speaking fellowship/church for him to join. I went to google and found your blog. I would appreciate any contacts you could give me in that area so I can connect him to a group of believers. Thank you.

    Please email me at the email address that I’m required to register with.
