David Ro | The astonishing ways God is working in and through Chinese Christians today

Feb 11, 20170 comments

Christianity dates as far back as the 7th century in China. There are 70+ million Christians in China today, or 5% of the population. Much has been written on the astonishing growth of the Chinese church (there were 4 million Christians in China in 1949, and some say that number may swell to 160 million by 2030). But, leaving the numbers aside, how much do Americans, Australians, Europeans, and others really know about the life, struggles, sacrifices, hopes, witness, and experiences of Chinese Christians today? And what can Chinese Christians teach us about faith and spiritual passion?

In this filmed interview, David Ro and Graham Hill discuss the astonishing ways God is working in and through Chinese Christians today.

David serves as the Director for the Christy Wilson Mission Center at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary as well as the International Deputy Director for the Lausanne movement in East Asia. After graduating from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, David pastored for a few years in Boston before moving to East Asia to reach urban intellectuals and students. David launched an education consulting company in Beijing and has lived in China for over nine years. David is a frequent speaker, mobilizer and is a leading source for the church in urban China. David is currently working on a Ph.D. at the Oxford Centre for Mission Studies.

David and his wife, Jackie, along with their four children, currently reside in the greater Boston area.
