About Ambassadors for Christ (AFC)
The Ambassadors for Christ (AFC) is committed to reaching Chinese intellectuals for Christ in this generation.

The two parties have formed a strong desire to cooperate, and the two parties hope to develop a joint force to operate and promote the Chinese Christian campus ministry to serve the God. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) has been made and entered into effective on Jun. 03, 2022 by and between DAF and AFC.
DAF will donate to AFC with a grant of $65,000 per year for at least three consecutive years to support one more full-time administrative staffing cost of the AFC US campus department.

About AFC Special Fund for 2022 Vision Conference
In the December of 2022, Daofeng and Angela Foundation and Bedrock Foundation co-provided a restricted grant for AFC Campus Ministry Vision Conference Scholarship and Stipend.
The 2022 Vision conference was held by Bridges International in Denver between Dec.28, 2022 – Jan. 1, 2023.
Daofeng and Angela Foundation and Bedrock Foundation hope to achieve two goals through this Grant:
1. Support the AFC Campus Ministry Department to provide campus workers with an excellent opportunity to shepherd the “flock” for God.
2. Provide AFC campus staff with learning opportunities to understand how to organize youth-friendly and attractive conventions characterized by layered interactions.
Daofeng and Angela Foundation and Bedrock Foundation support this Grant to benefit AFC Campus Ministry students and staff in two parts as strategic co-grant partners.
One part is the Conference Student Air Ticket Scholarship. Students whose campuses are over 1400 miles away from Denver could apply for up to 2/3 of their airfare from the Conference. Daofeng and Angela Foundation has sponsored $100,000 to Bridge International to provide sufficient Air ticket Scholarships to open to AFC Campus Ministry students.
The other part is the AFC Students and Staff Special Grant (AFC Grant) sponsored by the Bedrock Foundation in the amount of $18,897.6 US Dollars. The Grant is strictly used to cover AFC Campus Ministry Staff’s necessary travel costs, 1/2 of the students’ airfare whose campus is not qualified to apply for the Conference Student Air Ticket Scholarship, and an additional student stipend for needed students listed in the attachment.
Finally, there were in total 28 AFC students and 8 AFC staff participated in the Vision Conference.
