Evangelizing Fellow Immigrants

Evangelizing Fellow Immigrants

South Asian Christians

(p.28) TWO Evangelizing Fellow Immigrants
The Faith Next Door

Paul D. Numrich

Oxford University Press

The South Asian American population includes immigrant Hindus, Muslims, and Christians. This chapter highlights initiatives of South Asian Christians to evangelize fellow South Asian immigrants, often in cooperation with nonimmigrant evangelical groups and volunteers. Three cases are examined: (1) Indian evangelists, (2) Telugu Lutheran congregations, and (3) a Christian center in the heart of Chicago's South Asian community. “What we do is friendship evangelism,” explains a staff member at the Christian center. “We want to be the aroma, the love, and the hands and feet of Jesus in the community. We live the Gospel first, and then we give it vocally.”

Keywords:   South Asian American, Hindus, Muslims, Indians, immigrants, evangelists, Telugu, friendship evangelism, Gospel
