Chinese house church preacher arrested for illegal gathering

On the 19th of February, a house church preacher’s wife sent out a prayer request for Panshi church and her imprisoned husband Geng Zejun, who leads the church, and five other Christians released on bail including herself.


China Aid reports that after the church in Huinong District, Shizuishan, Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, was raided during its Sunday service on the 5th of December 2021, Preacher Geng Zejun was administratively detained for two weeks.

Five other Christians were also administratively detained for 10 days and released on bail: Hao Ying (Geng’s wife), Luo Shiping, Ye Ningfang, Zhu Junying, and Wang Sufang.

While Preacher Geng was released last December, he was again detained in January and later arrested for “organizing and sponsoring illegal gatherings.” Hao received a notice of her husband’s formal arrest on the 25th of January. Preacher Geng is now being detained at Shizuishan city’s detention center.
