Chinese in Flushing
  • Flushing is very diverse. The community is
    composed mainly of Chinesefrom mainland China,
    with some TaiwaneseKoreans, South Asian Indians,
    and Pakistanis. Latinosmany from Columbia,
    Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republicare the
    next largest ethnic group forming nearly a
    quarter of Flushing's population, followed by
    white, Jewish, and African-American.

  • Flushing is a pretty dynamic shopping area with
    many mainstream stores like Macy's, KFC,
    Starbucks, and Payless Shoes right next door to
    Chinese herb shops, Korean bakeries, and Asian
  • There are over 17 banks clustered in downtown
    Flushing with the number of deposits (2 billion)
    second only to Manhattan's Chinatown.
  • One of the busiest, and most diverse library
    systems in the United States happens to be the
    Queens Public Library, with the flagship Flushing
    branch leading the way in the number of books
    loaned FN 1.
  • On Saturdays and Sundays, families gather to dine
    at the many restaurants, and dim sum palaces in
    the area. Among the best is Gum Tong Gung,
    located across the street from the recently built
    Flushing Mall.

  • Even with the bus traffic, the large numbers of
    people, and the business of it all, Flushing
    doesn't seem too overcrowded, and traffic is not
    a nightmare.
  • Part of the reason is the huge numbers of parking
    lots that exist in Flushing. Many businesses have
    their own private lots for customers, and if they
    do not, the city provides three gigantic
    municipal lots conveniently located in the center
    of town.

  • The new Flushing library boasts the International
    Resource Collection featuring hundreds of
    newspapers, and over 50,000 books, CDs, DVDs,
    popular fiction, and academic titles in a
    language other than English (primarily Chinese,
    Korean, Spanish, Russian, and six South Asian
    Languages) many of the titles you can't find
    anywhere else in the United States

Our Dream The Multi-Site Church
  • The strengths of this new life form
  • An estimated 100 to 200 churches nationwide are
    experimenting with this concept one church
    (meaning one staff, one board, one budget)
    meeting in multiple locations, usually with the
    various sites developing unique personalities yet
    sharing the same "brand identity" and DNA.

eight advantages
  • Brand new AND trusted brandThe particular
    congregation is the trusted brand, and the
    opening of a new site makes it brand new.
  • Staff with generalists
  • The multi-site church, however, allows you to
    start a new location with the existing staff in

eight advantages
  • Less cost AND greater impact
  • Financially, a new location is tremendously
    cost effective. Our ministry is a lot better
    organized than when we did our first plant.
  • New church vibe AND big church punch
  • We are able to launch the second site with
    the same level of excellence that it takes us
    eight years to achieve at our new locations.

eight advantages
  • Move there AND stay hereGrowing churches and
    real estate have this in common "location,
    location, location." Many existing churches,
    particularly older churches, are located in
    communities with little growth. These churches
    look across town where new development is
    happening and they see the potential. Perhaps
    many of their members are moving there.

eight advantages
  • More need AND more support
  • 1. The increased opportunities create a vacuum
    that challenges more people to step in to serve
    in voluntary leadership roles in all areas, such
    as children's, hospitality, and small groups.
  • 2. It is true of any new church start-up. What
    makes multi-site unique is that the existing
    church already has coaches in place who are there
    to support, encourage, and organize volunteers.
    Appoint a leader to care for them and train them
    makes volunteers more willing to help.

eight advantages
  • More outreach AND more maturityThe multi-site
    church reaches out to make both more Christians
    and more mature Christians.
  • While people will drive long distances to join
    the weekly celebration service at a large church,
    if they live more than 20 minutes away, their
    ability to serve and to invite friends is
