Some ministry leaders and pastors say there is no need for contextualizing ministry and only the Gospel and its doctrines is essential. Some say that only multi-ethnic churches are needed, where everyone is equally incorporated in a church’s life and corporate culture.
But, when I read remarks like this, it helps me to see that a different flavor of church really is needed for next generation Asian Americans.
This remark is from Josh Deng, a college senior:
I was thinking about where I’d really find my place in the future, what kind of church I would be involved in. I decided that a purely chinese-speaking congregation was not my place. But on the flip side, a purely American (read: white) church would have me still feeling slightly out of place. Wonder where I fit in?
