Why do those who carl participate in more inclusive congregations instead choose to tum to those that draw strong ethnic boundaries? This article addresses this question through a little studied but growing phenomenon — Asian American college students participation in separate ethnic evangelical organizations. Using data gathered from field research in a variety of ethnically diverse campus ministries, this paper examines why second-generation Korean Americans who can participate in pan-ethnic, multiracial, or predominately white campus rninistries instead participate in separate ethnic campus ministries. In so doing, it contributes to the emerging literature on the religious participation of the children of today s post-1965 immigrants; it addresses the largely unformed debate regarding the prevalence of racializauon versus ethnicization explanations for ethnic religious group formation.
