Focused on All of Jesus for All the World

The Hmong District is the largest Alliance district with more than 33,900 members and 109 churches. Since there is no Hmong country, missions agencies don’t send missionaries specifically to the Hmong people. Instead, many look to the district to reach and serve the Hmong worldwide.
Orchard Alliance has been serving the Hmong district and their churches for nearly 40 years—providing more than $50.5 million in loans. Over the years, these loans have been used to purchase land, build churches, renovate properties, and many other uses.
The district is approached often for resources and advice as leaders among the Hmong. To help expand their reach, they came up with an innovative solution. In 2020, the district built a TV studio to stream broadcasts that could be seen all over the world via their Facebook and YouTube channels. Unlike radio signals, the links to their TV program, called HKM TV, are accessible everywhere—including impossible to reach people.
Their weekly programs cover a variety of topics like leadership training, district news and resources, gospel messages, and even live prayer for requests that come in during the broadcast. This communication channel has been well received, averaging 20,000 views each week. During the height of the pandemic, the TV studio was even more valuable, allowing Hmong people to stay connected and hear the gospel during times of quarantine. In 2022, the district plans to add a new program called “Life Matters” which will cover topics like marriage, parenting, finances, illness, and others from a biblical perspective.
“We will continue to grow and adapt HKM TV to meet the current challenges,” says Kao Chang, multimedia ministries director for the Hmong district. “It’s been an effective solution for the ever-changing times we’re in, and we will continue to use it as a strategic platform for communication, ministry, and the advancement of the gospel.”

We are honored to serve them as they continue to reach the Hmong community around the world.
