On the morning of March 19, 2024, Rev. Dr. Lin Manhong, Residential Vice President and General Secretary of CCC, and Rev. Geng Weizhong, Residential Vice President of CCC, received an eight-person delegation led by Dr. Gene Wood, President of Word4Asia Consulting International.

After recalling the friendly interactions between the two sides, Rev. Dr. Lin introduced the new leadership that took office at the end of last year, and the organizational structure of CCC&TSPM. She mentioned that CCC&TSPM highly values the relationship with overseas friends, hoping to make friends extensively and establishing a good rapport with them. Rev. Geng said that twenty years of friendship between Word4Asia and the Church in China has become a good witness. He gave thanks to their great support for the Church in China over the past twenty years or so, and looked forward to a continued deep interaction between the two sides and an increased mutual understanding.

In his response, Dr. Gene Wood said that Word4Asia has made frequent visits to Chinese churches since the late 1990s. They have always shown respect for the Three-Self Principles and have maintained a good rapport with the Church in China. This visit could enable them to deepen their understanding of Chinese churches while learning from their experience. During the meeting, the two sides also had an exchange over the Chinanization of Christianity, Bible publishing, social services, etc.

Afterwards, the delegation visited the Holy Trinity Cathedral and the Grace Telling Bookshop.
