The Youth Fellowship of Jida Church sits on the 13th floor of a golden office building in Panlong District, Kunming City.

On one afternoon in July 2021, Brother Lee Lujun of Jida Church shared a testimony of Jida Church in a telephone interview with Gospel Times, an online Chinese Christian newspaper.

Established on April 27, 2015, Jida Church has a total area of 460 square meters, equally divided into two areas. The main area covers an area of 230 square meters, which can accommodate more than 200 people for worship services. The other multi-functional area is divided into several activity areas, which can meet the needs of various fellowships to carry out activities.

At present, there are more than 300 registered believers, and the number of believers who can regularly attend church meetings reaches about 200. About 60 volunteers participated in various ministry services.

Every Sunday morning, there will be a traditional Sunday worship service and in the afternoon a music worship service. Their communion service is held on the first Sunday of each month. During the rest of the week, the church will also arrange and organize various fellowship activities and some interest group activities.

In addition, they will hold worship gathering activities at Easter and Christmas every year, as well as in China’s traditional Spring Festival, Dragon Boat Festival, Mid-Autumn Festival, Double Ninth Festival, and other major festivals.

The Youth Fellowship focuses on cultivating the spiritual life of young people through worship and praise, including preaching, witnessing, sharing, etc. The Study Fellowship learns God’s Word through Bible study. The Senior Fellowship enables middle-aged and elderly brothers and sisters to be taken care of and guided.

The Yi Fellowship is mainly composed of brothers and sisters of the Yi ethnic group. Bible study activities with characteristics of the Yi minority are always conducted in the afternoon of the last Saturday of each month. In addition, the church has also set up a book-selling point to facilitate the believers to read and buy their favorite books.

Jida Church currently has six full-time pastoral staff (four ordained pastors, one pastor, and one administrative fellow), with offices, church affairs group, prayer group, sound group, reception group, cleaning group, visiting group, communion group, and chalice washing group.

Brother Li said that in the future, Jida Church would take "leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity" as its own mission. With the help of "daily morning prayer" and "daily Bible reading" sections, believers would be supposed to practice godliness, take root in the Bible, watch the church and serve society.
