Asian American Christian Fellowship (AACF) began as the campus ministries of the Japanese Evangelical Missionary Society (JEMS) in the Fall of 1972, with group meeting as the JEMS Campus Bible Studies. In 1977, the name AACF came into being with the first group utilizing that name on the campus of Cal State Long Beach. AACF is a ministry geared to reach Asian American students on college and university campuses. AACF desires to serve Jesus Christ on these campuses to reach the 95% of Asian Americans who do not know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, as this is the last major opportunity to share Jesus as students congregate on college and university campuses and ponder major decisions for their future. AACF provides opportunities for students to grapple with the issue of God in their lives as well as explore the opportunity to serve their campuses and fellow students as they live out the life of Jesus while on campus.
