About the Region

The Southeast Asian region in which our teams serve boasts the largest population in the world. Culture has been shaped by religio-philosophical traditions but is primarily secular humanist in nature. Buddhism, Taoism and Islam are the most common religions with folk customs also playing a role. East Asia has one of the fastest growing and most complex economies in the world. It’s the world’s largest exporter and second largest importer of goods. In the midst of strong government influence and a high level of economic inequality, people are searching for hope.

About the Ministry

The focus of these missions is relational ministry—interacting with university students, professionals and young families. The teams will be involved in teaching life skills, and training students and business people interested in learning English as a second language. Serving God through these practical connection points offers an exciting opportunity to introduce people to the love and hope of Jesus. 

Team Projects

Team projects will include kids’ ministry during an annual retreat organized for local ministry leaders. Teams will also be involved in teaching English through conversational “English Corners” in various locations. Other projects include mentoring professionals and young parents, counseling women, holding “kitchen table conversations,” and speaking at “Life Talks.” Team 2 will also be involved in several Christmas outreach programs.

PAC-Supported Missionaries

While each short-term team raises the expenses related to the work of the team, contributions to the Global Ministry Fund help support the ongoing ministry needs of our missionary partners.
