The Jiangxi CCC&TSPM sent more than 50 workers to preach in local churches to gain theological support on February 25, 2018. The theme of the preaching message was "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" (Isaiah 6:8)

The campaign called on each believer to pray for Jiangxi Bible School, the only seminary in Jiangxi, to donate one yuan, and to recommend suitable people to enroll in the school. 

Local church leaders, seminary graduates and undergraduates from the seminary took the lead to make donations for the school's theological education.

According to You Bin, a curate from Ji'an Gospel Church, the school received around 11,000 yuan from donations on Weixin as of Feb. 27. Yugan Gospel Church donated nearly 160,000 yuan and a large church in Xinyu gave about 22,800 yuan.  

Jiangxi Bible school, founded in the fall of 1992, was the "school for the further education of pastoral staff in Jiangxi Province" with a schooling length of one year in its early days. In April 1993 it was renamed "Jiangxi Christian Bible School" and the schooling length was changed to two years in 1998. In 2003, the "Jiangxi Christian Bible School" was renamed Jiangxi Bible School. In 2015, approved by the State Administration of Religious Affairs, Jiangxi Bible school was officially upgraded to a junior college seminary with a schooling length of 3 years. And in September 2015, the seminary recruited its first batch of college students.
