Factors affecting Asian American Participation in World Missions

Presenter: David Narita, Faculty at William Jessup University and physician at Western Sierra Medical Clinic

Description: Asian Americans are excited about world missions. Well over a third of attendees since Urbana ’09 have been Asian American; an observation repeated at missions conferences throughout the country. However we are not seeing an equal rise of Asian American applicants to our missions agencies. Why is this interest not translating into action?

Presenter Bio: David Narita recently returned from Cambodia with his family after serving with OMF International through church planting and health care. He is an adjunct professor of intercultural studies at William Jessup University, sees patients in a medically underserved community and encourages those seeking to serve Christ through mission.
