bap_2008_cover_sm In 1996, Dr. James Chuck published a report documenting the growth of Chinese congregations in five Bay Area counties from 1950 through the middle of 1996. In the present study, we revisit these same churches, identify new churches started since 1996, make note of changes, and update the church profiles.

The report is approximately 230 pages. The price will be determined soon. Go to the ISAAC website in early December 2008 to order your copy. Email Tim Tseng if you have any questions.
