Jake and his family have served as missionaries with Project China since 2007 and are currently serving in Taiwan. After Jake finished his training and fund-raising in the States he and his family moved to mainland China. During his time in language school he start a bible study among college students. This ended up being the core group from which he would start his first church. Since that time has been used to train several young men for the ministry who are now pastoring their own churches and has started a seminary in their city.
In 2014, Jake was deported from the mainland. Now he is planting churches in Taiwan and training those in the mainland via the internet. His proven missionary experience and success aids him as he is actively involved in training more Chinese pastors and helping equip the next generation of church-planting missionaries.
Be sure to check out Jake’s book, Send Me, I’ll Go: Letting the Mission Choose Your Direction:
How is the Great Commission essential for making sense of our world? Are ministries of mercy part of the church’s global mission? These are just two of many questions born out of authentic and passionate conversations between church planter Jake Taube and American students serving on short-term mission trips in underground Chinese churches.
In Send Me, I’ll Go, Jake Taube analyzes current mission trends and challenges potential disciple-makers to personalize the decision to spread the message of salvation. With boldness and without apology, this book examines the call of the Great Commission and offers a vision for western Christians to live, uncompromisingly and sacrificially, the responsibility of sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with the world’s unreached people groups.

- Rethinking Unreached People Groups (Part 3), A long time ago, I started a blog series trying to show that a widespread, modern interpretation of the Great Commission was a novel innovation and in fact not what the mission entails.
