Denver Collective

About the Diaspora in Denver

The city of Denver has a population of 713,252 (2022), while there are nearly 3 million people in the metro area. The city’s population grew 18.8 percent between 2010 and 2022. 352,100 immigrants reside in Denver, or 12 percent of the total population. While larger cities typically have the most immigrant residents, mid-sized cities like Denver are becoming a place where immigrants and refugees want to call home. Denver’s top five countries of origin for its immigrant population are: Mexico, Vietnam, China, Ethiopia, and El Salvador. 60% of Denver’s immigrants are from Latin America , 20% from Asia, 9% from Europe, and 9% from Africa. According to estimates, there are more than 30,000 Ethiopians and Eritreans in the Denver area.

Our desire is to connect with you and introduce you to our diverse community of pastors, ministry leaders, and missional practitioners. We would love to have you be part of our Collective. Help us confront the lostness here in the Denver Metro Area and see gospel saturation happen in our city.

Upcoming Interest Gathering

The aim of this initial gathering is to discuss the state and needs of the diaspora in Denver. Ultimately, our desire is to see diaspora people reached, leaders trained, and churches planted among the foreign-born population in the Mile High City.

Thursday, May 16th 10:00am-2:00pm

at the The Avenue Church

The Diaspora Missions Collective is a new, cooperative initiative designed to equip Southern Baptist churches in their awareness, understanding, and engagement of diaspora peoples as they embrace their responsibility to fulfill the Great Commission both locally and globally.

This initial gathering is designed to pray, share, and collaborate on reaching the nations in our city. This Collective would be a gathering of local pastors, association, and ministry leaders as well as others who are burdened to engage the spiritual needs of the unreached among the foreign-born populations in Denver.
