 Mission & Strategic Plan of Action

Southeast Asian Ministries exist to support districts, pastors, local churches, and leaders in the task of making Christlike disciples among each of the represented people groups in the U.S. and Canada. Here’s our strategic plan of action:

  • Encourage the development of strategy, initiative, and resources to reach the USA/Canada mission field. 
  • Facilitate the creation of resources for pastors, local congregations, and for ministerial preparation through the strategy committee.
  • Utilize as strategy committee members, church leaders who are committed to establishing the Kingdom of God in the hearts of Southeast Asian people in their communities.
