“Love God, Love One Another, and Make Disciples for Jesus Christ”

ChristWay United Methodist Church was founded in 1984 and was the first Hmong United Methodist church established in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

In the fall of 1983, Pastor Jonah and few other leaders from St. Paul came to visit their relatives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  They introduced their new founded faith and ministry in the United Methodist Church to them.  These relatives were Christians already and had just recently moved to Wisconsin in search for a better life, education, economic support and self-sufficiency and family unification.  Soon after the Minnesota Annual Conference and the Wisconsin Annual Conference were communicating through their respective District Superintendents.  In early spring the following year, representatives from Minnesota, Ginger and Pastor Jonah, came and met with Pastor Nou Yi Yang and some leaders together with the District Superintendent of the Milwaukee District, Dick Hinkomman, of the Wisconsin Annual Conference.  A plan was made for the Milwaukee Hmong group to hold their first Sunday on April 8, 1984 at Emmaus United Methodist Church of Southside Milwaukee.  The group became Hmong Christian Community United Methodist Church and later renamed ChristWay UMC.   Emmaus UMC eventually dissolved and the building was deeded to Hmong Christian Community UMC.
