About Hong Kong
Officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong is one of the world's most significant financial centres. With around 7.2 million Hong Kongers of various nationalities in a territory of 1,104 sq km, Hong Kong is the world's 4th most densely populated country or territory. It is the world's most popular international traveller destination, and the home to the world's most frequently travelled citizens. Even with one of the highest per capita incomes in the world, it suffers from severe income inequality. [source: Wikipedia]
WEC Hong Kong's vision is to work together with the Hong Kong churches to plant multiplying churches among the remaining unevangelized peoples of the world.
To achieve this, we are glad to give short courses and take mission meetings to inform and inspire churches about world mission. We publish books, magazines and prayer materials to share the needs of the world; we set up prayer networks for missionaries and unreached people groups.
We get together with other missions to take part in meetings to promote mission on an annual basis.
All our mobilization effort is designed to see Hong Kong churches stepping forward to serve the nations, renewing and reviving. We have sent 37 long term missionaries into Asia, Africa, Middle East and Southeast Asia doing pioneering and church planting work.
In our Hong Kong office we have a team of 8 people supporting our missionaries and mission work behind the scene. We share work on mobilization, recruitment, screening, training, caring, finance and administration. Our goal for 2018 is to recruit 20 or more people to go out to mission fields long term.
