Seeking Rest

Over a half billion Buddhists in more than 670 people groups worldwide need to know the transforming power of the gospel of Christ. Yet, nearly four in five of them are least-reached: They don’t have access to a church that preaches the gospel and worships in a culturally relevant way.

Christ-Honoring Transforming

Christar is driven by a passion to establish churches among the least-reached: those who do not have access to a church in their own language, culture or in proximity to where they live. We trust the Lord to work through us as we send teams to cultivate Christ-honoring transformation in Buddhist communities throughout the world where He is not yet known or worshiped.

A Heritage of Ministry Among Buddhists

Buddhists have long held a special place in our hearts. The earliest roots of Christar reach back to 1909, when Florence Drew left for China with only a suitcase, a typewriter and a dream. She founded the South China Boat Mission, which established floating boat churches to bring God’s truth to coastal fishermen in Hong Kong and the surrounding area where Buddhism was practiced.

Today, our workers use a wide variety of skills and occupations to cultivate Christ-honoring transformation in Buddhist communities, and we rejoice in the spiritual fruit that God has been producing through our efforts. Our prayer is that God would bring more Buddhists to Himself, and that He would give believers around the world a desire to reach Buddhists for Christ.
