Origin

Welcome divider

WCCCC has grown to be one of the largest independent Chinese Christian conferences. Our annual Winter Conference is designed just for students and young adults--and run by volunteer students and young adults.

History


From fellowship retreat to WCCCC

WCCCC began in 1969 when a group of foreign born Chinese Christian students gathered for fellowship over the Christmas break. This winter retreat continued up through 1971. In 1972, the winter retreat planning committee elected to place their efforts in the planning of the North American Congress of Chinese Evangelicals (NACOCE). After the NACOCE meeting, this winter retreat began its transformation into a full fledged "Winter Conference."

From this onward, WCCCC has grown into a regional conference ministering to students and young adults, both foreign and American born, from over 100 different groups and churches.
