It is a Gospel outreach and mission training centre,
working with churches and theological seminaries
in full-time training believers.


Hong Kong Christian Short Term Mission Training Centre was established in 1988. It is a cross-denominational mission training organization. Its purpose is to promote local and overseas Chinese mission scheme. Our main effort is to train Christians who commit either two years or one year to training to become short term missionaries, to enable them to have a breakthrough in their spiritual lives, to put their heart for Gospel outreach as well as their evangelistic methods into practice. At the same time, it caters for different people groups with a variety of training courses, equipping them for Gospel outreach and providing them with opportunities to practice.


The route map of the Short Term Mission Scheme:

Missionaries : Motivate short term missionary graduates to become long term missionaries

(full-time missionaries or tent-makers).

Mission fields : Motivate churches to obey the Great Commission, from local to overseas.
