jonesboro chinese fellowship church
Mission: To help provide ministry help with this local church plant that is reaching Chinese students and professionals in the area.
Description: Central was first attracted to reaching Chinese by noting the good number of Chinese students that were coming to Arkansas State University. We then noted that there were a good number of professionals in the area, teaching or in business. Then God sent us Greg & Jackie Meeks, retiring from the International Mission Board where they worked as our missionaries in Taiwan. As the Bible Studies began to produce disciples of Jesus, we saw the potential of a Chinese Church in Jonesboro. In 2014 the church had grown to the point of needing a bi-vocational church planter/pastor. After much searching we found Pastor Samuel Li, a Theology Student at Mid-America Baptist Seminary in Memphis. Volunteers are needed to help in the following ways:
· Friends of Chinese Church: These are families that would like to befriend a Chinese student to have in their home on occasion, take them to special events, church, to build a relationship to share Christ.
· Sunday School Teachers are need for the Elementary age students.
