Immigrant churches are uniquely equipped to play a part in making disciples of all nations by ministering to people that other churches are not able to reach due to linguistic or cultural barriers. Yet immigrant churches must also be intentional to reach beyond those of their own ethnicity. This ministry project sought for members of the English ministry at Chinese Baptist Church of Miami to develop an understanding that God’s mission to reach the nations is all throughout the Bible and to help them to realize every Christian is expected to participate in this mission. Various aspects of Chinese culture and practices within Chinese churches which prevent a congregation from having a missions-minded outlook are examined with the goal of helping church members grow in their knowledge of and commitment to God’s mission.
