Greetings! We are China Christian Daily, the first comprehensive English Christian news website about the church in China. Thank you for your sincere love, prayer for, and contributions to the Chinese church.

Amongst groups of Chinese pastors, the most discussed topics are how to increase the membership, how to increase the number of meeting points, and pastors' feelings and reflections on the objective environment. But few pastors have had a deep, collective discussion on how the church is cultivating the "new generation of successors." In this monthly newsletter, we choose a few of these interviews, in which different pastors talk about how to raise the next generation of church leaders.

You can also read trending news as well as articles about the living conditions of grassroots pastors, a Christian depression rehabilitation center, and the aging issue.
