The author presents shame as a problem in ministry for Asians attending Queens Christian Alliance Church in Flushing, Queens, NYC. He used five catalysts for exploring and helping to uncover the spiritual condition of shame among Asians attending QCAC: a six-part sermon series on shame, a shame inventory, four Sunday small group dialogue and discussions, a prayer gathering sharing, and four separate leadership teams dialogue and discussions. The participants were: 60-62 attended the sermon series on shame and completed the shame inventory (62 before and 60 after the sermon series); 4-9 participated in four Sunday small group dialogue and discussions; 25 participated in the prayer gathering sharing; and 29 participated in the four separate leadership teams dialogue and discussions (6 pastors/staff, 5 elders, 9 governing board members, and 9 worship team leaders). The author discovered five patterns and tendencies within Asian shame and offered some ministry recommendations.
