NAPAD Ministry Team

The ministry of the North American Pacific/Asian Disciples (NAPAD) is an integral part and a fast growing edge of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). We are proudly and faithfully on the frontline of accomplishment for our church’s “20/20 Vision” that has four mission priorities: New Church Establishment; Congregational Transformation; Leadership Development; Becoming a Pro-Reconciling and Anti-Racist Church.

Serving eighteen different and distinct Asian and Pacific Islanders groups within the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), the ministry of NAPAD has grown from eight Asian churches began in 1992 to over 100 churches currently. 

The ministry team of NAPAD consists of the competent leaders in various areas of Disciples ministries, general and regional and institutional.
