The 10 City Initiative

Original Goal: Project China’s “Northeast Initiative” is a strategy to reach the Northeastern part of China with the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. This part of the country is made up of the following 3 provinces: Heilongjiang, Liaoning, Jilin. The 4 key cities that we are targeting are: Harbin, Changchun, Shenyang, and Dalian. The total population for these cities are around 33 million and the area is around 109 million souls. We are praying for a church-planting missionary family in each of these key cities with our team.


Expanded Goal: As we continue to pray for these 4 cities, we are expanding our initiative into 6 other key cities which are all around the Yellow Sea and its innermost bay called the Bohai Sea. Thus, the following key cities are added: Tangshan, Tianjin, Yantai, Weifang, Jinan, and Qingdao. This also adds 3 new provinces: Hebei, Tianjin, and Shandong. The total population for these cities are around 55 million and the area is around 186 million souls. We are praying for a church-planting missionary family in each of these key cities with our team.


New Goal: This new goal is called “The 10 City Initiative”.

  • The 10 key cities that we are targeting are: Harbin, Changchun, Shenyang, Tangshan, Tianjin, Dalian, Yantai, Weifang, Jinan, and Qingdao.
  • The 6 provinces are: Heilongjiang, Jilin, Liaoning, Hebei, Tianjin, and Shandong.
  • The total population for these cities are around 88 million and the area is around 295 million souls.

Our initial goal is to see a church-planting missionary in each of these key cities. Our hope is that each of these missionaries will start a church-planting movement that trains national leaders to not only reach the city they are in but also their province and beyond.

We need men to surrender their lives to take the gospel to these places. There are incredible opportunities in these places—we just need a willing man with a heart fully surrendered over to God.

Will you pray will us for the millions of souls who need the gospel?

Will you consider going and being one of the missionaries with Project China?
