Welcome to the North American Pacific/Asian Disciples Web Site!

New Year's Greetings 

 Greetings in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ!

I share my warm greetings for the New Year with you. 2015 is the year of the sheep in the Chinese Zodiac. A colleague recently joked that this year is the year of Jesus – Lamb of God. I hope that you are walking with Jesus Christ at every moment of this year.


This year, NAPAD will continually work to support new church plantings and affiliations. New church movements are part of the genuine DNA of NAPAD. Let us pray for the new Pacific/Asian congregations which will be generated and/or affiliated with Disciples.


This year, NAPAD will persistently work to make NAPAD a more inclusive community. With great joy, we will celebrate our diversities among generations, ethnic groups, cultures, and theologies. Let us pray that each of us, with no exception, will be respected and have a place in NAPAD.


This year, NAPAD will energetically work to encourage the NAPAD community to participate in social justice movements in close cooperation with our ecumenical mission partners. I believe that when NAPAD focuses towards a more justice-oriented Christian community, we can find our true identity with which we will be aware of our calling as Disciples.


The General Assembly of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) will take place in Columbus, OH from July 18 to 22. I hope that we will be able to represent our diversity, inclusiveness, and responsibility with our Disciples friends together. Let us plan to join this Assembly and prepare for our contributions.


I would like to share this verse with you for the New Year: In all things God works for the good of you who love God, to you who are called according to God’s purpose. (Romans 8:28)


Happy New Year!


Blessings,

Rev. Jinsuk Chun

Executive Pastor of North American Pacific/Asian Disciples (NAPAD)
