Asia Ministry

  • Overview
The vast region of Asia covers nations such as South Korea, where Christianity flourishes, to Turkmenistan, where Christianity is not welcome. As in other regions, ACCTS’ outreach in each country is individualized to the needs of each nation.

In China, ACCTS maintains a friendship and outreach ministry by working with indigenous Christians to teach English and provide medical services in remote mountain areas.

In South Korea, we work closely with military Christians and the vibrant ministry they carry out both within their nation and in other nations around the world.

Our staff members encourage and minister to national Christians as well as AMCF vice presidents in this region, and we host Academy Exploration Asia trips, which allow U.S. cadets and mids to experience Asian military and civilian culture.
