With more than 25 years of experience serving in bilingual Chinese churches, I have a passion to help ethnic churches reach the next generation. While working on my D.Min. I did my dissertation on reaching the next generations in Chinese churches. In the process I wrote a series of articles titled 30 Days on the Chinese Church as well as other posts in on the topic Chinese Churches.
Along the way I discovered that many other ethnic immigrant churches face similar challenges in reaching their American-born children. For example, see my blog post on English Ministry in the 19th Century, which describes the struggle of German speaking churches in the U.S. to reach their children.
I did a public presentation of a summary of his dissertation research. Here are the recordings of the presentation:

Here are two articles by Pastor Victor Lee of Toronto that I have found useful. They are posted here with his permission:
