The number of Christians in China is expected to exceed that of the United States by 2025. The North Central Jurisdiction young adult mission program, Discover . . . Mission, is forming a team to go to China in 2019 to learn how this can happen in an officially atheist nation. A proposed mission team of twelve United Methodist young adults will travel to mainland China July 17 through July 31, 2019, to connect with and experience one of the fastest growing church bodies in the world.

The young adult mission journey is sponsored by United Methodist Volunteers in Mission, North Central Jurisdiction under its young adult leadership development program called Discover . . . Mission. The China Christian Council and Three Self Patriotic Movement have provided an invitation to Bishop Hee-Soo Jung, co-leaders Reverend David Newhouse and Mrs. Christy Newhouse, and Discover . . . Mission. The team will meet with China’s Christian leaders, interact with young adult Christians, and partner in Christian service.

Up to twelve young adults (age preference 18-35) will be selected from U.S. applicants. The early applicant (December 1, 2018) estimated cost is only $2,650 per person ($3,150 single hotel occupancy) for all North Central Jurisdiction young adults and $3,250 per person ($3,750 for single hotel occupancy) for all other applicants. Discover . . . Mission China 2019 will meet Christian leaders in Shanghai, Nanjing and Beijing, experience and partner with Amity Foundation Christian services and work alongside young adults through the YMCA (exact projects not yet determined). While the focus is learning, spiritual growth and leadership development alongside Chinese Christians, there will be opportunity to visit recognized national sites like the Great Wall of China, The Forbidden City and the Summer Palace.

Applications are being accepted at the offices of Ms. Tammy Kuntz, Coordinator of UMVIM-NCJ and Discover . . . Mission. UMVIM-NCJ will subsidize all qualified applications received from young adults in the North Central Jurisdiction by December 1, 2018, to make possible the cost of only $2,650 ($3,150 single hotel occupancy). The stated cost includes a $1,200 allowance for airfare from Chicago O’Hare to Shanghai with the return from Beijing to Chicago.
