Webinar: Chinese Christianity in an Increasingly Hostile Environment

Description:  Are you looking for a tool to teach the basics of the Great Commission? Do you need material to do a sermon series or Sunday school, small group series, or maybe just a one-off on the Great Commission? This webinar will help you do just that.

After decades of relative openness and tolerance, China under President Xi Jinping has adopted a decidedly less tolerant attitude towards religion in general, and Christianity in particular. In this webinar we will talk about what this new restrictive environment looks like on a practical level, not only for local believers, but for foreign Christians as well.

It proclaims to the world how many days, hours, minutes, and seconds are left until Hong Kong reverts to Chinese sovereignty on July 1, 1997. While there is no corresponding clock in the prosperous, freewheeling British colony of 6.3 million people, alarm bells have been ringing for some time.
