Phil and Sara Martin

Who we are

The Martins are the on field arm of the Gospel to China team. Currently we live in Palmyra, Pennsylvania as we continue to raise supporters and prepare to head back to Asia. God has been pressing the evangelization of the world on our hearts for years before we met. It is an incredible blessing that we are able join in obeying the Great Commission in Mainland China. You can read more about our story here.

Our Role in Gospel to China

As church planting missionaries, our responsibility is consistently evangelize, establish new churches, and train pastors who will plant more congregations. As we work towards these ends, we regularly report back to give opportunities to lock arms in prayer and to praise God for his blessings. This includes regular posts on our website, monthly prayer updates, a furlough to visit partners every few years.

Project China

What is Project China?

Project China is a disciple-making, church-planting, leader-training ministry that exists to reach China and Taiwan with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Missionaries from different sending entities cooperate to support, encourage, and learn from one another. Currently, the team consists of 11 families that are in varying stages of ministry. 

What does Project China Do?

In short, Project China does anything that furthers the spread of the gospel in the Chinese speaking world. Primarily, this is bold evangelism, church planting, and training of faithful leaders for ministry. For team members such as ourselves, Project China provides cultural insight, ministry strategies, translated materials, theological accountability, and on field relationships.

How do we know Project China?

In the summer of 2009 Phil participated in a Project China internship in Northeast China. Since then, we have attended missions conferences with the team and eventually spent a year in Kaohsiung, Taiwan working with a Project China church plant. Nearly all of the missions training we’ve received has come through these relationships. Discover more on the Project China website and learn more about their influence on us here.
