We serve in university communities across America where COM staff and volunteers impact the lives of thousands of Chinese students and scholars each year.
Do you enjoy making friends, learning about other cultures, and sharing Christ’s love? There are opportunities to serve at universities in all parts of the U.S. You could be involved with an existing campus team and serve longside experienced coworkers. Or, if you already have experience and skills, you could plant a new ministry at a location where COM doesn’t already have staff.

Each year thousands of Chinese students and scholars are introduced to the gospel through COM ministry on university campuses. As many become followers of Jesus, we walk alongside them, equipping them to live out their faith in their families, communities, and professions. Each year, COM sends transformed Christian leaders back to China, prepared and committed to being ambassadors of the gospel for their own people and culture.
China Outreach Ministries is an incorporated, nonprofit organization committed to the historic evangelical Christian faith. COM works cooperatively with a variety of ministries and churches to serve the whole body of Christ and is not officially connected to a particular church or denomination.
China Outreach Ministries (COM) staff reach out to Chinese students and scholars in university communities across the United States, helping them adapt to life in America and introducing them to Jesus.
