TIMOTHY RICHARD AND HIS STRATEGIC MISSIONS IN CHINA
Timothy Richard was a Protestant missionary who spent 45 years in late Qing China from 1870 to 1915. He helped establish churches and mission stations in the northern provinces in Shandong and Shanxi and trained local Christians and workers for the Chinese church. His compassion for the poor led him to serve in famine relief and social reforms in China, paving the way to reach the Chinese officials and engage in the modernization of China. This talk highlights his strategic missionary approach in his quest for souls which was a broader and more holistic resulting in his lasting legacy including the establishment of the Shanxi University after 1902.
