Asian American Emergents skypecast this Sunday
Spread the word about the Asian American Emergents skypecast [NOTE: sorry, messed it all up; please skype me to join!] coming this Sunday 10/29 at 9:00pm Eastern + 6:00pm Pacific. Note that this Sunday is the first day of Daylight Savings Time in the US.
We should be talking about planting emerging/emergent churches for Asian Americans with our special guest Bruce Reyes-Chow, making his first appearance on the skypecast that he originally dreamed up.
Had an incredible time here in Oregon; flying back East to Washington DC on a red-eye. Tell you more next week.
[update 10/29/06] We used an alternative way to do our event tonight, b/c I messed up the Skypecast setup and we also had other technical difficulties too, so we did it via a Skype conference call: Skypecasts allow up to 100 participants, but Skype conference calls only allow up to a maximum of 5. So, sorry Eddie for not being able to include you on time, this go around 🙁
On the call, we (Bruce Reyes-Chow, Sivin Kit, myself, plus 21-year-old Eugene from Vancouver listened in.) did dialogue around the issues of planting emerging churches to reach a new generation of Asian Americans. Bruce (who is Chinese/Filipino) started with a discusses the story of how Mission Bay Community Church started with PCUSA support; it now has a multiethnic diversity of about 40% Asian-American, 40% White, 20% other (African American/Multi-Racial). We explored the intersection of Emergent and Asians, talked about technical difficulties, and ended with advise about church planting.
