Asian Baptist Student Koinonia (ABSK) is a Christian group devoted to nurturing a community of faith among students on the UMD campus. ABSK is on campuses throughout the East Coast, including Georgetown and the University of Maryland, Baltimore. ABSK strives to help students cultivate their faith through in-depth study of the Bible, fellowship with one another, and service to the wider campus community.

We love to study God’s Word, eat together, play sports, or simply hang out and get to know each other. Join us this semester for Thursday Bible studies and Sunday gatherings!

The group is not limited to Asians, Baptists, or people who know what Koinonia means (but FYI, it means “fellowship” in Greek). So come join us!


Pastor James Lee is an ordained minister and also a  rehabilitation doctor by training who has served as a medical missionary in Timor-Leste (South East Asia) and in the Republic of Georgia (former Soviet Union).
