The Charis Alliance first entered Asia in 1984 through joint efforts to begin churches in Japan and the Philippines. As churches associated with the Charis Alliance were better informed of the needs and opportunities of this vast and populous continent, new teams deployed to Kyrgyzstan (1997), Cambodia (2000), Turkey (2002), and Vietnam (2011). The unique challenges of presenting Christ to Muslims, Buddhists, and atheists have led workers to develop many creative avenues to bless communities, build relationships, and share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Currently there are about eleven churches associated with the Charis Alliance, and nine Points of Light. Asia is also hope to many creative business and ministry initiatives. Asians contribute a passion for creative outreach, an appreciation for cultural and religious diversity, and a persevering spirit to the Charis Alliance.
