Who We Are

Asian Christian Fellowship at Washington University exists to be an environment where broken people discover and respond to the grace of God. ACF seeks to be a community committed to the deepening of faith in Jesus Christ by fostering an environment of open, honest, spiritual dialogue.

Our vision is to reach the Asian community by helping all people encounter God and grow closer to Jesus.


How Can I Participate?

Large Group

Every Friday night, ACF gathers to worship through song, message and prayer. We start the night by singing songs of worship then receive a short message by an invited speaker. Topics may include God's perspectives on school, friendships, and relationships. Afterwards, we enjoy more fellowship together through a social activity (food, movies, games, or laser tag!).

Join us every Friday night at 7pm in Simon Hall, rm 122.

Small Group

During small group, students gather to learn about and discuss short Bible passages or other topics related to Christianity. Each small group has leader(s) who will prepare for and lead during that time. Everyone is welcome to attend!

Join us in these small groups throughout the week to discuss and explore issues we encounter in our lives and what God has to say about them!

Mondays, 7:00-8:30 pm

Mudd 130

We’ll be talking about what it looks like to live a Christian life, specifically on the college campus. We’ll look at both what the Bible has to say about this subject and discuss some pressing topics, such as partying and relationships.

Wednesdays, 7:30-9:30 pm

Nemerov Seminar A

Running the Race is a small group exploring the interesting combination of Asian/Asian-American and Christian identities. Come for discussion about how both of these cultures influence one another, how they both influence us, and how we can react as Asian-Americans and/or Christians to the broader racial issues in America. Also, Cal will bring cookies.

Wednesdays, 8:00-9:30 pm

Eliot B1 common room

Our small group aspires to build a close-knit community of people who desire to know both each other and Scripture on a deeper level. This semester, we will be looking into the book of Genesis and going back to our foundation in faith by delving into the meaning behind God and His Creation.

Thursdays, 7:00-9:00 pm

Gregg 3 study room

We are a small group directed at allowing both Christians and non-Christians to come together to talk about questions pertaining to faith. We encourage people of all backgrounds to come and represent your ideas freely, without fear of judgment.

Thursdays, 7:00-9:00 pm

Nemerov Seminar A

This small group is a community of people seeking to know more of who Jesus was (and is!) through the gospel of Matthew.

Join us at these times when we pray for each other, the Wash U campus, and greater St. Louis community:

  • Wednesdays 8-9pm (Mudd 130)
