I am officially inviting you to the Asian American Ministry Conference on the theme of “Mentoring for a Lifetime” on Saturday, November 8th, 2014, being hosted at Biola University in La Mirada, CA. Whether you’re local or within driving distance of the greater Los Angeles area, or you need to book a round-trip flight, this is a special opportunity that you won’t find anywhere else!
To provide you mentoring and to equip your mentoring, AAMC will have 14+ seasoned mentors sharing their lives and experiences from mentoring Asian Americans and/or being an Asian American mentor, because you know from experience that mentoring people is not a one-size-fits-all kind of endeavor. Mentors include:
- Benjamin Shin (Talbot School of Theology)
- Jen Shin (Talbot)
- Cory Ishida (Evergreen Baptist Church of SGV)
- Michael Lee (Young Nak Celebration Church)
- Sheryl Silzer (SIL International)
- Tommy Dyo (Epic Movement of Cru)
- Walt Russell (Talbot School of Theology)
- Kevin Nguyen (Lead Pastor of Saddleback Church Irvine Campus)
- and more!
I’m particularly grateful to see the organizers intent on making this an annual conference that equips Asian American Christian ministry leaders and pastors. It’s an answer to my prayers that we as Asian American Christians would have more frequent gatherings to sharpen one another and learn together. It’s hard to learn alone. And in my few years of connecting with Asian American leaders, the number one need I heard 15 years ago and I still hear today is: mentoring.
And, I’m coordinating a special free pre-conference on Friday, November 7th, 2014, from 1:00pm-5:30pm, for people to experience peer mentoring and a learning group experience. This pre-conference is not exclusive to out-of-town attendees, but AAMC registration is required.
To confirm your spot at the pre-conference, add a comment here or contact me. If I receive at least 10 confirmations for this pre-conference before November 1, the event will be on. If not, then no deal. Deal or no deal, it’s your call. Let’s do this thing, ok?
