Mei-Shan Christian Church, TGRM
The Taiwan Grass-Roots Mission (TGRM) is a non-denominational missionary organization planting churches in areas not yet reached by the Gospel. Established in 1980 as the China Grass-Roots Mission (in Taiwan), the organization was renamed the Taiwan Grass-Roots Mission in February, 2004, with emphasis on spreading the Gospel in rural parts of Taiwan.
In March 2009, Pastor Huang, Hsin-Chi and Mrs. Huang were sent by TGRM to establish a church in Meishan, a village in Houli, Taichung. They came at the fact that a number of families in this rural area struggle a lot with rather challenging backgrounds and status while other families in Houli don¡¯t, fearing no shortage. The possible education, characters, and lives that children from such different families could attain do differ. A proper family of origin provides initial character development and socialization that better a child¡¯s foundation for education, confidence, and resistance to pressure. Keeping the idea in mind, Pastor and Mrs. Huang started with foundations of the children¡¯s education and characters, complementing the insufficiencies of their family functions, offering a chance for them to get rid of the difficult and underprivileged situations.
