About Asian Ministries
ABCNJ's Asian Regional Ministry includes 15 churches of different Asian cultures and backgrounds. We are in contact with each other once a month, for guidance, and sharing of regional events and news. As a group, we meet together at least twice a year for a meal, workshops, and worship, with fellowship and sharing. Our group meetings are well attended and center on aspects of concern, sharing and helping each other out. ABCNJ’s Asian churches serve a variety of communities, including Burmese, Bhutanese, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Korean, Nagaland, Filipino, and Taiwanese.
