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.
In China, there are 22 registered seminaries where students graduate to serve in TSPM churches and numerous underground seminaries and Bible schools. This summer thousands of students graduate from official and unofficial seminaries and schools. Usually, students are recommended and funded by their churches or pastors to enroll in a seminary then they study for one to four years. After graduation with diplomas, they choose to go back to work in mother churches or move to other places. Sadly, their average salaries are not high, compared to normal jobs. Suffering from financial difficulties without a support system or under misconceptions such as "being poorer meaning more godly", some work part-time to support their families and ministries, while some leave the church for secular jobs. This month we compile their graduation news and stories to give you a glimpse of this group.
You can also read trending news as well as articles about the online challenges posed by the Administrative Measures for Internet Religious Information Services, the whole picture of Christian drug rehabilitation institutions in China, and a tourist attraction church story.
