How to Preach the Gospel to Asian-Americans Part I

Excerpted from "The Purpose-Driven Asian-American Pastor" by Rick Wong

Attention to appearance: It is of vital importance to relate to people with the message of the gospel. This is what it means to be all things to all people. If the people you want to attract to the gospel are fashionable and hip, then by all means dress accordingly. I recommend using lots of hair gel (or wax as you prefer). The soul patch works well with white pastors so I would go for that look if you can pull it off. Avoid perms. They don't look good on Asians. For examples of the look you're going for, check out BD Wong of Law & Order SVU. He's one to follow. On the other hand, if your group is the studious type, you can go for the Mark Zuckerberg look. Yes, he's white (well Jewish actually - as close to yellow as you get) but he knows how to rock the nerdy look with Adidas slides and North Face apparel.
