In China you’ll never run out of having new experiences. From being sardined in a Beijing subway to hiking the Great Wall, there are endless places to explore, people to meet, and conversations to be had. China may be one of the world’s leading superpowers, but many of its people still hold on to its ancient and traditional ways of life. Your summer in China will be a glorious cultural and sensory experience.

China

outreach

outreach

The focus is Chinese teenagers and children. The team will host two 12-day “English and Culture” camps for teenagers and kids living in a migrant camp on the gritty edge of the city. All ministry will be based on relationships; the better a Chinese student knows and trusts you, the more they will listen to what you have to say. Morning programs are built around fun, creative, and interactive activities. Most afternoons you’ll be out and about within your Chinese small groups touring, eating, or hanging out having deep conversations in coffee shops. Whatever the activity, the gospel is woven into almost everything you’ll do.



safety

safety

Royal Servants takes the safety and health of each participant seriously. We go to great lengths to ensure that participants remain healthy and safe throughout the trip. Therefore, no participant is allowed to be alone in any city; Royal Servants always travel in groups of three or more, and when possible, with either a male or Summer Staff in each group. The Trip Leaders also continually monitor conditions within the host country both before and during the trip. If a situation arises that threatens the security of the team, either politically or from environmental conditions, the team will be moved to a stable location.

adventure

The China team travels … a lot. You’ll be hauling over 1,400 miles cross-country on China’s train system getting to and from your ministry destinations. And yes, those bullet trains really do go well over 160 mph! You’ll wander alleys that only the locals know about, eat amazing new foods with your Chinese friends, and visit sites and attractions that may not mean much to a Westerner but are important to the Chinese.

experience culture

experience culture

When you see a motor scooter zip by carrying a family of four, you’ll know you’re not in America anymore. The places you stay, the food you eat, and the neighborhoods you walk are far off the tourist track; outside your teammates, you’ll rarely see a non-Asian face. What you hear, see, smell, and taste will be 100% authentic Chinese. You’ll literally be immersed deep in the culture of China, which is the way to learn how to appreciate it most. And when you visit a Chinese home, it will be as a friend and not a visitor.

spiritual growth

spiritual growth

Sure, I can tell you how you’ll grow, but I’d like you to hear first-hand from past China students:  

“Quiet times allowed me time to refresh and reconnect with God. I learned from others during Bible study discussions, and worship gave me the opportunity to praise, thank, and experience God's presence. Setting aside time to thank God not only helped my attitude about everyday situations but also made me mindful of how He is continually working.”  

 "I grew spiritually by letting go of control and yielding to His plan for my life. It was a difficult thing to do and taught me how to put my trust in Him. I realized that my way isn't always the best way."   

"Being able to discuss what we studied during quiet time helped me grow spiritually, it allowed me to hear my peer's perspective on the passages we read. It was a great opportunity to see how God was speaking in their lives."

“On this trip, I grew in relying on God and learned to be content with what God has given me.”

China is great for those who value talking about their faith within the context of a relationship. If you’re not too afraid of unusual food, have a sense of adventure, and are willing to live outside the box for a summer, the ministry in China might be right for you.

eating & Sleeping

eating & sleeping

Food in China is amazing, but you’ll likely be offered some very interesting and unidentifiable dishes during your stay. But don’t worry, the Chinese never force you to eat something your stomach may not appreciate! But you can never go wrong with the local sweet and sour pork, freshly-made dumplings (a.k.a., pot stickers), or bowls of steaming noodles with slices of beef and a wonderful assortment of fresh vegetables. Just know that you’re going to arrive home a chopstick Jedi.

You won’t exactly know where you’ll be sleeping until you get there because things often change at the last minute in China, but rest easy: you will have a bed, though it will probably be in a college dorm, a youth hostel, or a small Chinese hotel. You will also spend a night sleeping on a train on the way to Beijing. It may be a 19-hour train ride, but the scenery is fascinating, the bunks are clean, and you’ll be surrounded by your teammates.

debriefing

Debriefing is a time to race to the top of the Great Wall, roam the Forbidden City, shop, and eat Western food again! It is also a period to reflect and see how God used your summer experiences to work in you. It gives you time for closure and to prepare yourself for the important transition back home.

ministry partners

ministry partners

All our work in China is in partnership with local Christians or missionaries. These are brave, bold, and passionate believers whose desire is to reach Chinese teenagers. Working beside them will be both encouraging and humbling. They also provide the follow-up on the Chinese you work with. They are good people who are committed to making Christ’s message available to all Chinese.
