Ethnic Churches

Sharing a laugh with another pastorWith 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:
