David Yua is a missionary to Taiwan. He and his late wife, Christina, were the pioneers who helped establish the Open Bible work in Taiwan using their well-developed network of contacts and long-term relationships with independent ministries there.
Asia is one of the hot spots for dynamic church growth and revival. Taiwan, strategically located in the heart of Asia, has easy access to both China and Southeast Asia. The church in Taiwan is growing and experiencing a powerful move of God. This burst of growth made it necessary to find a good discipleship and leadership training program to raise up qualified church leaders.
For this reason, INSTE Level One was translated into Chinese, with students now in Taiwan and China. INSTE Level Two is in the process of being translated and pilot groups are perfecting the first editions. David Yua and his late wife, Christina, founded the Chinese Open Bible Church in Rosemead, California, before establishing the work in Taiwan.
