The first Alliance missionaries arrived in Asia/Pacific in the late 1800s, bringing God’s Word to people previously untouched by the gospel. Pioneer missionary Robert A. Jaffray sailed for China in 1896. In 1911, he and two other missionaries entered Annam (now Vietnam), a part of French Indo-China, and established the first Protestant mission in the area.
Today, more than 40 million people worship in Alliance churches in nine countries throughout Asia Pacific, from the rugged plateaus of Mongolia to the congested streets of Bangkok. Thousands of C&MA churches in the area are engaged in evangelism, church planting, theological education, medical ministries, and relief and development work. From caring for orphans and AIDS patients to rescuing young girls from sex trafficking, Alliance workers and their national partners are sharing Christ’s love with people in desperate need throughout this vast region.

The Alliance believes wholeheartedly in the power and necessity of prayer. We cannot “Live the Call Together” unless prayer is central to all we do—in our denomination, in our churches, and in our individual lives.
You can help build Christ’s Church around the world by donating online to the Great Commission Fund. This central funding vehicle allows our international workers to focus on ministry rather than raising financial support.
