This later became the basis for his further work and research in China. After he finished his MA degree, Enoch launched the Cross-Cultural Training Center, a missionary training center for Chinese locals. He developed curriculums and trained both missionary candidates and career missionaries while developing his credibility with the local leaders. He also developed new campus ministries for Chinese.While doing ministry in the mission field, he finished Ph.D. in missiology with the dissertation title: Receptor-Oriented Communication for Hui Muslims in China: with Special Reference to Church Planting.
