(Simplified Chinese) Pastor’s Library Set
TGC International Outreach is working to provide Theological Famine Relief for pastors and leaders in China, both within the registered and unregistered church. These four titles have been chosen through discussions with indigenous church leaders. We are asking God to provide $100,000 towards this end, through your generous giving. The aim of this project is to put an solid, biblical, accessible books into the hands of church leaders in China so that they are taught the basic beliefs of foundational Christian doctrines and church practice.

We are partnering with translators, publishers, and missions networks to strengthen thousands of congregations by helping to equip the pastors and elders called to shepherd them.
China, the largest nation in the world, is home to the fastest growing church movement in Asia. While Chinese nationals have emigrated throughout the world, over a billion people still live in China and its provincial nations. With 1 in every 5 people in the world reading the Chinese language there is a need for strong, biblically sound Christian books, theological training materials, and discipleship materials.
The church, both registered and un-registered, is rapidly expanding and yet these pastors are in need of good study and training materials and Chinese doctrinal books that will help them lead and guide their congregations in times of difficulty and in times of great blessing. Without good materials, false teachings, error, and division have stunted the growth of the Church in China.
