SEND’s Ministry

The mission of SEND International in Taiwan is to glorify God by partnering with like-minded believers to establish reproducing churches among the least-reached Hakka and Hokklo peoples and among Asian expatriates.  

We have three church-planting teams serving in three different areas of Taiwan, among Taiwanese people in Chiayi and Hakka people in Miaoli. We also have a team reaching out to Vietnamese workers in Tanzi. Generally we employ a more traditional method of church planting.

We have a new ministry focus on campus outreach, hoping to establish disciple making movements among the students at local universities.Starting English clubs on campus has been an effective method to build connections, and we hope to expand from there.
