The work of OM in Hong Kong is two-fold: It is a home office sending out recruits from Hong Kong churches to many OM fields, and we also have an outreach ministry to ethnic minorities coming into Hong Kong from South Asia.
There are over 300,000 people from minority races in Hong Kong, the equivalent to the number of Christians in the city. People have come to work as a result of globalization and economic development. However, taking root and residency in this predominantly Chinese community is challenging.
The outreach team aims to offer them not only warmth, but to take that one step further, leading them to the love of Christ. The team works in cooperation with several local churches and schools, combining proclamation and social service. Activities include visitation, Chinese instruction, adaptation courses, counselling etc. The team is on one hand serving the great needs among the minority races, and on the other hand mobilizing local believers and churches to take part in the cross-cultural mission at our doorstep.
