Four Fundamental Ways of Partnership
At China Partnership, we believe there are four fundamental ways for people to partner with the Chinese church: through learning, praying, giving, and encouraging. Our goal is to help equip the Western church to engage with China in these four ways, for the good of both the Chinese church and the Western church.
If we are to love our Chinese brothers and sisters well, then we must learn about them: their culture and heritage, the challenges they face, their hopes and joys, their needs and desires. As persecution increases in China, we must also continue to raise awareness of what our Chinese brothers and sisters suffer, as well as testify to God's continued faithfulness to the Chinese church.

As one Chinese pastor describes it, when the global church prays for the Chinese church, we hold them in our hands before the throne of grace. At China Partnership, we fervently believe that prayer is not secondary: it is primary. There is no greater gift we can offer our Chinese brethren than to take their names before our loving, powerful Father in heaven.

Throughout Paul's missionary journeys, he continually took up offerings on behalf of the poor in Jerusalem. In the same way, we can bless the Chinese church by joyfully offering our finances that they may continue to grow, helping to provide for resourcing, training, supporting staff, and many other material needs. Here are some ways that your gift will help support the work in China:
Whether in times of plenty or times of persecution, the Chinese church longs for the encouragement of its global brothers and sisters. Such encouragement "builds them up" (1 Thessalonians 5:11) and allows us to "bear one another's burdens" (Galatians 6:2).
We are in the midst of updating our resources for our Encourage initiative. In the meantime, if you would like to send a note of prayer or encouragement to the Chinese churches, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
