The Asian North American degree concentration is designed to support and equip those who are presently engaged in various types of ministries in the Asian North American context where English is the primary language used for ministry. This concentration will be offered every other year. Students will have the opportunity to critically analyze their particular ministry contexts by engaging in emerging themes in Asian North American theologies and ministries. Coursework will include study of Asian North American theology, history, ethics, pastoral care, religions, social sciences, family and cultural systems theory of ministry, and participation in a travel seminar. Discussions will touch on U.S. immigration history, Asian North American experiences of marginality, sexism and crises of women in ministry, generational issues and conflicts, multiculturalism and racial ethnic diversity in the U.S. and in Asian North American churches, identity issues, and theological divisions. The trajectory of this concentration will be towards students’ reengagement in their ministry with new vision and creative energy, undergirded by a deepened understanding of critical issues in Asian North American contextual theology.
