Regional Profile

East Asia comprises countries with great diversity of cultures, population density and religious perspectives. Worldviews include Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, Confucianism, Taoism, Animism, and Atheism. In a few East Asian countries, Christianity is well established, thriving and reaching out to the rest of the world. In many others the church is numerically small yet continues to grow despite its marginal place in the public sphere.

Interserve teams work in several East Asian countries, using professional skills to bless people who are struggling economically as well as those who are rich in resources but face needs in other areas of their lives. Our workers seek to model Christ’s servant-heartedness to the benefit of local communities.
