When Communism fell in 1991, there were only a handful of Mongolians who followed Jesus. Today, there are more than 32,000 Christians—about 1% of the population. That number is down from a high of about 60,000 in 2010, indicating a crisis of leadership in the Mongolian church and a need for church leaders to receive the biblical education and leadership development needed to lead and disciple their flocks of young believers.
Mongolia Campus Crusade for Christ (MCCC) is a key partner for First Pres, and we send several teams each year to teach, mentor, encourage and walk alongside the staff of MCCC as they reach out to various professionals, Nomads and college students. Young Life is affiliated with MCCC in Mongolia, and we regularly send members to train and encourage their team. First Pres has supported six MCCC staff studying for Masters of Divinity and Theology degrees. In 2016 First Pres and MCCC celebrated ten years of formal partnership.
