Agape Way promotes fundamental understanding and grassroots friendship through cultural exchanges. We provide opportunities for churches, agencies, and individuals to be directly involved in the following programs in China:
English Teaching helps to improve oral English communication and comprehension skills of English teachers and students;
Friendship Exchange establishes friendship at the grassroots level. Many American friends have expressed their sincere love for China and its people after they visit China through our ministry;

Academic Researches promotes exchanges and understandings between researchers in China and the United States.
Agape coaches work with Chinese students both in China and overseas to make wise decisions and to live a life that displays the love of God. There are currently over 80,000 Chinese graduate students and scholars that conduct research in universities and research institutes in North America. Reaching these potential future leaders of China is of great strategic importance in spreading the love of Christ in the most populated country in the world. Agape Way reaches Chinese graduate students, scholars, professionals and their families for Christ in the North Carolina Triangle area, North America and around the world through partnerships with campus ministries and local churches.
The goals of Agape Life Ministry are to help truth-seekers and new believers find the ultimate purpose in life – to live a life that displays the love of God and to equip new believers to become mature spiritual leaders through discipleship and mentoring. Those future leaders may greatly impact Chinese society in the future.
