About the President

Dr. Christian Wei,

Dr Christian Wei was saved September 10, 1978, after a colleague in the Taiwan military encouraged him to attend a missionary church. Called to the ministry in 1980, Dr Wei enrolled in Orient Fundamental Bible College of Taiwan and graduated in 1986. That same year Christian and Judy Wei left Taiwan to study in the United States at Bob Jones University, where Dr Wei received an M.A. (1987) and Ph.D. (1992) in Theology. In 1997 Dr Wei earned a doctorate in education from La Salle University.

In 1987 while studying at BJU in Greenville, South Carolina, the Weis helped to establish a local Chinese Bible Church. When several charter members finished their own seminary studies and went to the mission field, the church provided monthly support. As the church mission program expanded Dr Wei saw a need to form a special organization dedicated to sending missionaries to Chinese peoples throughout the world. Thus Chinese for Christ International (CFCI) was established in 1992.

Two years later, in 1994, Dr Wei founded Christian Way Missions Inc (CWM) as a board for sending missionaries not only to China but to other restricted-access nations. CFCI became the first branch of CWM and has since been joined by India for Christ International (1996) and Myanmar for Christ International (1999).
