Additional Information:
Church-planting in Thailand needs to be done in a contextualized and reproducible way. Our goal is to see an indigenously led and sustained church-planting movement. The Isaan people are 99% Buddhist, though many of the youth are driven more by the secular draw of money, sex, and power. The Isaan region is 1/3 of the land mass of Thailand where 18 million people have little access to the gospel. Thailand is hot and humid much of the year.

Our Local Vision

Our local vision is to build loving relationships with university students as a bridge to share with them the transforming gospel of Jesus Christ. Through conversational English, good food, sports, and music we build friendships with students that lead to chronological Bible storytelling. As students come to faith, we disciple them in small groups and welcome them into a Christian community. Our vision is to equip them to bring the gospel to the unreached villages throughout Isaan.
