316NOW’s ministry has four major focuses: teaching, networking, and sharing. Here’s what we do:
316NOW helps Chinese church leaders grow spiritually through our Bible Institute. Our curriculum includes the key teachings of Christianity, the central books of the Bible, and sound pastoral practice. Our classes are taught online, and students graduate with a certificate of achievement.
316NOW assists our students in connecting with each other. The goal is that Chinese church leaders encourage each other, build one another up and instruct each other. That equips growing numbers of church leaders to teach more believers and to reach even more.
316NOW provides English as a Foreign Language instruction to grade school age children in China. The materials we use are based on Bible stories so we able to share the message of God's grace in Jesus as we teach English skills.
316NOW shares information about the Chinese culture with American Christians. God has been remarkably generous to the most populous nation in the world. We share the stories of those blessings. We also highlight the spiritual challenges there so believers here can consider how God has positioned them to help.
