■ Progress of the student ministry
Behind the lines in Free China during World War II the Holy Spirit raised up a remarkable evangelistic movement amongst Chinese students. Many great servants of the Lord in ensuing years were the fruit of the student work of that time. The influence of this movement extended too to the province of Taiwan.

In the 1950s there were missionaries in different parts of Taiwan who had separately started to work among students. The first Chinese student worker started to work with student fellowship groups in 1957 and soon afterwards all student work in the province was linked into one organization as Campus Evangelical Fellowship. It was in 1963 that some of the products of that first generation of student ministry joined C.E.F. as full-time staff workers. Since then there has been a steady stream of co-workers joining Campus Evangelical Fellowship to be trained and take up the challenge of bringing the Christian gospel to new generations of students and intellectuals in Taiwan.

 

There have been immense changes in our society over the last ten years. New evangelistic and cultural frontiers have opened up with the freedom for university, college level and junior middle schools student groups to function as on-campus clubs. We now have a number of specialist fellowship groups and have set up a section for overseas student ministries, with another for missions promotion.

Today we have a wider scope than ever for outreach to students.
