RJ Holt, a new member of our Movement Day Expressions team, and I traveled to Hong Kong in August to meet the team planning the first Movement Day Expression in a Chinese City.
Hong Kong may be the most strategic Chinese city in the world given its freedom to host Christian leadership gatherings. China has perhaps the fastest growing church in history. It also has the greatest number of first generation Christians in church history. Almost every meeting we attended was represented by leaders of whom 75% were first generation Christians.
God is stirring in remarkable ways. As many as 240 churches in Hong Kong have conducted the Alpha course, an organization that creates sessions on the topic of faith. There is also a rapidly growing number of Alpha marketplace courses. Half Time has a robust presence in the city as does the Global Leadership Summit.
Movement Day Hong Kong will be held on March 23-24, 2018. Emerging themes for the gatherings are:
- Investing in Millennial Leaders
- Multiplying Churches
- Impacting those in the Margins
- Mobilizing Marketplace Christians
