The Massive Harvest Fields of Southeast Asia: Training Leaders in Taiwan and Vietnam

God’s Spirit is moving throughout Southeast Asia. As trade wars have intensified between China and the United States, nations like Taiwan and Vietnam are poised to prosper.

Global Advance is engaging with marketplace leaders who are passionate for God’s Kingdom in both Taiwan and Vietnam. “I want to commit my business to God and to blessing others,” says Vu, a hotel owner.

In a upscale hair salon in the heart of Saigon, Hanh is booked throughout the day, engaging clients with a smile that lights up the room. Unashamedly, she has placed tracks about how to know Jesus right there in the studio waiting area. “Every day I share the love of God with my clients.”

Vietnam is the fastest growing economy in the world, yet only 2% of its people are Christians. This massive harvest field is ripe as much of the new Church in Vietnam represents young, entrepreneurial millennials.

Global Advance is committed to coming alongside the Church by providing training and resources for pastors and church leaders. Pastors have received training and tools on church planting, evangelism, leadership, and discipleship. Most importantly, they’ve received a touch from God. One touch of God’s Spirit can revive a soul and reignite passion and purpose. That’s what we want to see happen at every Global Advance conference.

Our Taiwan marketplace conference brought together top business minds to help shape and equip global Christian entrepreneurs. Those in attendance came from backgrounds such as banking, insurance, securities, financial consulting, education, media, and high-tech industry firms.

We’re also committed to growing believers in the marketplace. Since 2008, Global Advance has had a presence in Vietnam by providing training to thousands of business people and visiting dozens of businesses that are run and operated by Christians. They are taught business skills and presented with a challenge to commit their businesses to God’s purposes. People leave our marketplace conferences with a new perspective and a sense of calling to the marketplace that wasn’t there before.

Marketplace leaders in Vietnam are taught business skills and leave empowered to impact their nation for Christ.

Pray for God’s work in Southeast Asia!  There are still millions who need to find their hope in Jesus. Thank you for your prayers and support of Global Advance!
