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.
