Korean American Evangelicals

This chapter explores volunteerism among Korean Americans. Korean Americans in both Korean and multiethnic churches view their congregations as places that help them get involved with community service. In particular, they look to their churches for specific models of how to interact with their local community. Those in multiethnic churches are more individualistic while those in Korean American churches are more communally-oriented. Surprisingly, Korean Americans in multiethnic churches complete more individual acts of community service.
