China Outreach Ministries (COM) is an organization dedicated to bringing the Gospel to Chinese students and scholars studying on American campuses. We represent COM on the campus of Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. Purdue has 4,000 students from China (as of 2013); Chinese students make up 10% of the total student body! Here are a few examples of how we want to reach out to the Chinese:
- show the students Christ’s love through meeting practical needs (airport pick-ups, finding housing or furniture for those who need it, etc.)
- build relationships through regular social events (parties for Chinese and American holidays, trips, camping, etc.)
- disciple new believers
- plug Chinese believers into the body of Christ
- show hospitality to guests in a foreign country
- working alongside local church bodies in existing programs and ministries to Chinese students
