Chinese Congress on World Evangelization, or C.C.O.W.E., is an international organization of Overseas Chinese Christian churches that was founded on 1806. The Chinese Congress on World Evangelization has branches throughout East Asia and Southeast Asia. It is a member of the Lausanne Committee, a Christian organization that aims to bring the Gospel into the whole world.

Its goal is to reach out to the Chinese and Overseas Chinese throughout the world. However, some people have seen that, lately, there are more and more Overseas Chinese who does not know how to speak or read Chinese. With this issue, a committee was formed to be able to address the issue. A new group was created to cater to the English speaking Overseas Chinese. C.C.O.W.E. E.T.F. (English Task Force) was formed.
