Meet New Faces

Asian Americans are the fastest growing population in the United States. According to a new study from the Pew Research Center, Asians have surpassed Hispanics as the largest group of new immigrants to the United States. The total population of Asian Americans—both foreign and US born—are 18.2 million, or 5.8% of the total U.S. population, up from less than 1% in 1965.

Impact Lives

When we audaciously meet these new faces, engage in their communities, and equip their spiritual leaders, people and communities are impacted to live transformed lives and become disciples of Jesus Christ.

Support Ministries

The United Methodist Korean/Asian American & Pacific Islander Ministries are affiliated with the Discipleship Ministries. Discipleship Ministries has partnered with The United Methodist Church Foundation to serve God by encouraging stewardship as way of life, and upholding the missions and ministries of The United Methodist Church in the world.

In fulfillment of this mission, Discipleship Ministries seeks to serve the church by offering you an opportunity to fulfill your stewardship goals beyond the local church. In partnership with the United Methodist Korean/Asian American & Pacific Islander Ministries, we seek to build a 'Partner in Mission' fund for future ministries through current and planned gifts.

DONATE
  2. Raise $5,000 to equip 10 leaders with the development and training to train the next generation of leaders in their own ethnic groups with authentic and effective leadership skills. DONATE
  3. Raise $10,000 to develop, publish, and print Korean/Asian-Pacific language resources. DONATE
