China’s “New Normal” and Implications for the Chinese Church and Foreign Christian Workers

Saturday, 9:30 – 10:45 AM

Presented by: Joann Pittman

Following several decades of relative openness in terms of religious life in China, the past 5 years have seen a dramatic tightening. New religious regulations have been issued that are shrinking the space within which the Christianity can operate. In this workshop we will look at the social and political drivers of this new normal, and examine their impact on local believers and foreign Christian workers.

Primary Audience: Individuals and leaders of organizations engaged in China
