Who We Are


Our Mission and Vision

316NOW is a ministry of confessional Lutherans committed to bring the gospel to the Chinese people by empowering Chinese Christian leaders through Scripture study. We pray the Spirit would use 316NOW to assist these Chinese leaders in building and growing a network of spiritually united believers.


Our Leaders

The board of directors, administrators, and staff of 316NOW are Confessional Lutherans who are committed to making disciples for Jesus among Chinese people. Rev. Wayne Hilgendorf serves as the chairman of our board of directors. For the security of our ministry our normal policy is not to publish the names of our leaders.


Our Faith

316NOW is devoted to the biblical, Christian teachings treasured by the Confessional, evangelical Lutheran church. We believe Jesus Christ is the only door that opens heaven.
