The Center for Global Christianity and Mission is focused on China. With its explosive growth over the last 40 years, and its muscular expansion into mission, Chinese Christianity is playing a formative role in World Christianity. Its current revival, however, is part of a much longer story. CGCM faculty and students are not only studying contemporary Christian movements in China, but also the various ways they formed and reconfigured between the sixteenth century and the twentieth century. Current research interests include mapping Christianity in China from 1550 until 1950, Chinese-Western relations during the Qing Dynasty, the localization of Christian beliefs and practices, revival and pentecostal movements, and visual depictions of the faith in Republican China.
