About Our Ministry
Who are the Hmong: Hmong people are an Asian ethnic tribe originally from the mountains of Southeast China, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam. The Hmong people are very simple people, with a simple lifestyle. There are many dialects of the Hmong language, but two are predominantly common: Hmong white and Hmong green.
In 1949, the Christian and Missionary Alliance sent missionary, Ted Andrianoff to Laos. Andrianoff was the first missionary to ever make contact with the Hmong people.
Prior to the CMA missionary’s work in Laos, the Hmong people heavily practiced Shamanism. After Andrianoff shared the Gospel, over 2,000 Hmong people converted to Christianity in a matter of weeks. Today, the Christian and Missionary Alliance has over 30,000 Hmong members occupying 98 churches in the United States, and over 2.5 million Hmong member all throughout southeast Asia. Even though Shamanism is still the most common practice among the Hmong people, by the grace of God, Christianity has steadily grown within the Hmong community and in the heart of the Hmong people.

In the early 1960s, the United States CIA recruited the Hmong people to help in their efforts against the North Vietnamese guerillas and Lao insurgents. After the Vietnam war (1970) many Hmong refugees were resettled in the west, predominately in the United States, with the majority being placed in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and California. A small group of Hmong people were settled in the state of Colorado in the mid 1970s.
The first Hmong Christian congregation was established in Kansas City, Kansas in the early 1970s. After that, a few other Hmong churches started popping up around the country including a small church in Denver, Colorado.
Denver Hmong Alliance Church of the Christian and Missionary Alliance: A few Hmong believers in the Colorado community established a church in 1975. This church was known as Hmong South Baptist of Denver. In 1979, the church then joined the Christian and Missionary Alliance denomination and became Denver Hmong Alliance Church (DHAC). In 1983, DHAC became the first Hmong congregation to purchase its own church building.
Denver Hmong Alliance Church is proud to have had 7 Senior pastors and 3 youth pastors in service in its prestigious 36 years. But more importantly, Denver Hmong Alliance Church is proud to be a church that loves Jesus Christ and values the Holy Bible as God’s final authority.
