East Asia

Flags and globe of East Asia

Brief Description of Team History

Asia is diverse in more ways than culture. Believers vary from country to country on how they live out their faith. In many countries they have learned to hide to survive. Younger generations of Christ-followers in those countries, though, want to have a visible, positive impact on their communities.

In other places in Asia, the vision to impact the globe has grown in the heart of the church, and they are working to send cross-cultural workers to other countries to expand the Kingdom. OC is uniquely equipped to come alongside the body of Christ at whatever stage of growth or vision and help it take steps toward impact.
