The Asian Congregational Support Office works with Asian constituencies to assist with issues related to Asian American ministries. We work to develop resources for leadership development, to help in new church development projects, to consult with issues in church redevelopment, to facilitate leadership training conferences and to provide staff service to the Southeast Asian Advisory Committee. The office also works with other General Assembly program areas, offices and mid councils.
Our goals for our work with the PC(USA) General Assembly include developing Asian evangelism and church development strategies, recruiting Asian people to go into full-time ministry, to participate in mission and ministry in Asian countries, to develop resources for Asian Sunday School teachers and assist Asian congregations in stewardship.
