Who We Minister To
After 190 years of mission activity in Thailand, the reality is only a small percent of the country’s 67 million follows Christ today. There is a need to reach out to the Thai in a way they can relate to. The Centre is uniquely positioned to reach the Thai by not only providing a practical and valued service but also offering opportunities to make real and lasting friendships.
The Centre targets local students, between the ages of 17 – 24. The majority of these are Buddhist, often trapped in works-based behavior to buy a better future for their afterlives. Many also need healing from the brokenness of families, addictions and destructive lifestyles. The Centre exists to share Christ’s love to these students and to see them transformed.
What We Do
The Centre is all about creating strong relationships with students and sharing the love of Christ with them. The Centre reaches out to around 40,000 students in the area of Chiang Mai University and around 30,000 students in the area of Korat University. We offer them a quality and affordable conversational English program. To build a fun community atmosphere, we host events and activities both inside and outside The Centre. Once a year we host an English Camp for our students, which provides an intensive learning experience. We work hard to generate an atmosphere that allows us to freely share the Gospel.
On weekends, The Centre has several house churches started by our long-term staff, that students who have received Christ can choose to attend, as well as seekers. We also do occasional outings with the students to local places.
