Training the underground church

Harmony Outreach began work in Vietnam in 2013. The focus of our work is spreading the gospel by working together with pastors from the underground church.

It was during Harmony founder John Bentley’s first trip to Vietnam that God orchestrated a meeting with a pastor from the underground church.  For two hours John and pastor Daniel sat in a coffee shop in Saigon getting to know one another.  It was only toward the end of their meeting that John discovered that the "pastor" he had been talking with was the overall leader of the underground church movement in Vietnam—comprised of 6,000 churches from 29 different movements! 

At the end of that meeting, pastor Daniel asked John if Harmony could help the underground church by bringing pastors from the West to teach/train their Vietnamese counterparts.  Harmony has joyfully accepted this invitation and organizes pastors from the West to teach Vietnamese underground pastors at safe houses in Saigon in the south and Hanoi in the north.  Additionally, we work together with pastors and churches in remote village areas.
