Vietnam

By faith, we see:

  • An established multi-ethnic team, vibrantly witnessing to the gospel through character, word, and action in Vietnamese communities where Christ is least known.
  • God’s people in local, indigenous, mission-minded, growing churches, being and making disciples of Jesus within Vietnam and beyond.

Communities where He is least known

The Kinh

The Kinh ethnic Vietnamese make up 86% of Vietnam’s 96 million people. There are more than 50 minority groups in Vietnam. Only around 1% of Vietnamese in the south identify as evangelicals. The registered church is more established and is made up of a number of denominations.

In the northern provinces, 0.05% are followers of Jesus. Many minority groups are without any witness to the gospel. 

More than half of Vietnam’s population is under 30 years of age. They are seeking identity and purpose through education and employment. They are also becoming more open than ever to a widened perspective on life.

Prayers

1

Pray for the nation. Vietnam has high ambitions to become an industrialised, middle-income country by 2020. May this provide opportunities for missional business, engaging universities, and educational initiatives, through which Vietnam’s people will find true purpose in Christ.

2

Pray for Communist Party members, government officials, and military personnel. These people are pillars in Vietnamese society.

3

Pray for the Lord’s provision of new workers who will thrive in Vietnam and will be able to make disciples in culturally appropriate ways.

4

Pray for believers and local churches to have a growing vision to reach out to those who have yet to hear of Jesus.

5

Pray for approaches which train Vietnamese to equip their own people and develop leaders, enabling kingdom growth and transformation, particularly among young people.

6

Pray for Northern ethnic minority communities that have no church.

7

Pray for unity between leaders of various registered and unregistered denominations.

8

Pray for courage and perseverance for those facing opposition and persecution for their faith.
