Coffee, English, and Jesus in Taiwan – An Interview with Chris O’Dell


Chris O’Dell’s parents knew what he would become before he’d even been born. With a solid foundation of a Christian upbringing and the attending of a Christian college, Chris O’Dell set his sights on mission work early on, and seemingly hasn’t looked back since. O’dell, with the support of Christian and Missionary Alliance, has been spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ through Taiwan for the past several years in compelling and unconventional ways.

Listen as Chris talks about getting people to know Jesus as their savior through coffee, language, and comfort:

    Hi Chris,

    Blessings and Peace in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Thank you for your interview and for sharing your work in Taiwan. I’m a graduate of Nyack College and studied for 2 years at Alliance Theological Seminary so I have a warm and fond spirit for the CM&A..

    I love your approach through coffee shops and am now thinking of how I can implement something similar in the Philippines.

    I pray that you, your wife, your team and your work be wholly sanctified by, in and with the Holy Spirit. Amen.
