December 27-31

Baltimore Convention Center, MD

At the dawn of the twenty-first century, Chinese churches and Christians have an opportunity to become a new vital mission force for God's kingdom reaching the world for Christ. God has positioned us uniquely to contribute - it is time for us to take up the baton and finish the race. We have specially designed, interactive programs for Chinese- and English-speaking adults, Chinese international students, youth and children. Join us for five days this December as we dig into Philippians seeking the Lord and His way to finish the task well.

Paul is often heard asking, “These people have been waiting for 2,000 years to hear the good news of Jesus Christ. How much longer do they have to wait?”

December 27-31
Baltimore Convention Center, MD

At the dawn of the twenty-first century, Chinese churches and Christians have an opportunity to become a new vital mission force for God's kingdom reaching the world for Christ. God has positioned us uniquely to contribute - it is time for us to take up the baton and finish the race. We have specially designed, interactive programs for Chinese- and English-speaking adults, Chinese international students, youth and children. Join us for five days this December as we dig into Philippians seeking the Lord and His way to finish the task well.

Vice President of Network & Partnerships, Cru
President, Issachar Initiative
Director, Finishing the Task Network

Paul became a Campus Crusade for Christ (now Cru) staff member in 1966, and became vice president of network and partnerships in 2004. He directed Explo ‘72 in Dallas, an event that drew over 80,000 students from across America, and he founded the JESUS Film Project and served as its Director for 25 years. The JESUS Film has been translated into over 1,750 languages and has had a cumulative audience of more than 8.1 billion people around the world.

Paul has chaired the strategy working group for the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization and has served on several boards and advisory teams, including International Orality Network, AD2000 Movement, Call2All, and Global Pastors Network, Dynamic Church Planting Initiative and Global Media Outreach.

He is president of Issachar Initiative, an organization focused on educating and challenging individuals, Christian entrepreneurs, foundations and resource providers to use their influence, expertise and giving to extend the reach of the Church toward the strategic elements of the Great Commission.

Paul also gives direction to Finishing the Task Movement, a global network of local churches, denominations, church planters, and mission agencies that are willing to work together in partnership to see church planting initiatives launched among the world’s Unengaged, Unreached People Groups. Paul is often heard asking, “These people have been waiting for 2,000 years to hear the good news of Jesus Christ. How much longer do they have to wait?”

Paul’s education includes a Bachelor of Arts and MBA from Michigan State University and a master’s degree from Fuller Theological Seminary’s School of World Missions.

Paul lives in Southern California. He has two children, and six grandchildren.

They soon began living with a tribal group called the Biem people, on a tiny volcanic island 150km off the northern coast. In the last 9 years, they learned Biem language, developed an alphabet and a written form of the language, taught the Biem how to read and write and presented the Gospel to the Biem people. Today, there is a strong and vibrant indigenous church on Biem with tribal elders shepherding the church. They are now working to complete the New Testament translation for the church.
