AbstractIn 2011, about 600,000 Chinese people resided in the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario, Canada.1 However, fewer than 40,000 of them attended church. 2 At the same time, there are over 160 Chinese churches in the Greater Toronto Area, most of which are small and have difficulties bringing people to Christ. Over the past thirty years, the Chinese population in the Greater Toronto Area has been expanding and changing constantly. Because of this, the Chinese churches have the obligation to find better ways to reach out to this vast population in their community and to bring them to Christ. Richmond Hill Christian Community Church has been involved in church planting around the Greater Toronto Area since 2003. However, the new church plants all appeared to struggle in both size and strength. The purpose of this paper is to examine the development of the recent four church planting projects and to determine common problems that hinder church growth. The findings of this study will serve to provide recommendations to amend the existing RHCCC Church Planting Strategy in hopes of improving the success rate of the future church plants.
