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.

How You Can Help

Our goal is to raise $25,000 by the end of 2018 for the Partner in Mission Fund for Korean, Asian & Pacific Islander Ministries to provide scholarships to train leaders, develop Korean/Asian Pacific language resources, equip Asian Pacific American leaders, and partner with ministries in the Asia Pacific region. Please consider giving to support one of the following funding priorities:

  1. Raise $3,000 in scholarships for 10 ethnic clergy and lay leaders to attend training with organizations such as The National Leadership Conference for Leaders of Korean/Asian United Methodist Churches, The Wesleyan Leadership Conference, School of Ministerial and Congregational Development, and Leadership Trainings and Events.  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
  4. Raise $7,000 to host a major training event in the Asia-Pacific region to provide a platform or leadership development and spiritual renewal through workshops, conferencing, and networking.   DONATE

Every penny you contribute goes to the Partner in Mission Fund; not one cent of your gift is spent in administration.  Each dollar raised will be matched up to $10,000.
