Question: “I’m looking for a church  in the DC area with a large Asian American demographic in attendance. I really want to be integrated into the Asian American community. Can you refer me to such a church in DC? I don’t have a car or know how to drive, so my traveling options are limited to just walking.”

Answer >> There are several churches in the metro Washington DC / Virginia / Maryland area that are predominantly Asian American, or significantly so, oh, let’s say, at least 25%. And by “Asian American churches” I’m assuming English-speaking autonomous churches, not the ethnic Asians that’d be a part of a Korean or Chinese church with an English ministry. As for not driving, what’s awesome about DC is the subway system called Metro that gets you to many parts of DC / VA / MD.

Here’s the ones I know of that demographically fit the description, excerpted from my list of next-gen multi-Asian churches plus a few others. Please do add a comment if you know others:

Washington DC

Washington International Church (NW) [Metro: Tenleytown-AU]
Worthy Life Baptist Church (NW) [Metro: Friendship Heights]

Virginia

Ambassador Bible Church (Centreville)
Great Commission Community Church (Arlington) [Metro: Pentagon City]
New Life Church (Falls Church) [Metro: West Falls Church]

Maryland

H.O.P.E. Church (College Park)

footnote: Open Door Presbyterian Church (Herndon) and Christ Central Presbyterian Church (Centreville) and Grace Community Church (Silver Springs) are what could be considered a “2 churches on 1 campus” model so that could kinda fit too
