Learn from those who came before us, so that we are able to see beyond ourselves.

A program that is structured differently

Compared to other mission trips: One of the unique characteristics of the Houston Chinatown Program is the reflective, contextualized, and experiential modes of learning. Here are some of the ways you will learn:

Embodiment of space

Today, Chinatown boasts nearly two dozen shopping centers, hundreds of restaurants, apartments and housing, and many major mainstream banks. Chinatown contains an incredible depth of history. This area reflects all the work and good that God is doing within people of many backgrounds.

Intergenerational witness

One of our community values is to honor our elders. During the Chinatown program and through the multiple generations of voices, we seek to expand our perspectives of ethnicity, justice, and faith by inviting those older than us to tell their story.

Dinner Table Wisdom

We are accustomed to learning through lectures or sermons. However, the Chinatown program seeks to use reflective and community-oriented spaces to teach new ideas: by preparing meals together, learning about history over hot tea, and experiencing God in food that feels like home.

Family Discipleship

We believe that discipleship isn’t just a personal journey but a communal growing experience. As we engage in understanding and healing for ourselves, we hope your experience will translate to your family contexts.
