EXCELSIS is a legally registered, non-profit organization specialized in disciplining and equipping Chinese Christian businesspeople in Mainland China.

Founded in 2009, Excelsis has developed dozens of topics related to business administration, hundreds of training sessions in 90 cities in China, and numerous online training through the Internet.


In the past three decades, the world has witnessed China undergoing a dramatic economic boom. At the same time, another unprecedented dramatic change has taken place, which is now known as the spiritual revival of Christianity. To date, conservative estimates are that there are at least 80 million Christians in China, 100 times more than the number in 1950 after the founding of the PRC.

With this revival, an emerging community of Christian businesspeople suddenly appeared for the first time in China’s history. It is estimated that there are half a million Christian businesspeople in more than 100 cities. However, the Chinese churches are not yet prepared to pastor this community of businesspeople. It is an urgent task to help this generation of Christians to grow healthily in Christ. Within this context, Excelsis came into being.
