upcoming 3M conference for singles
I had a recent conversation with Lee Yih of Layman’s Foundation. He’s a part of hosting a unique conference called the “3M Christian Partnerships: Transforming the Marketplace, Ministry, and Marriage”, which will be at Lost Valley Ranch, Deckers, Colorado on February 14-17, 2008. Here’s what he had to say about this one-of-a-kind conference:
Q: What is the 3M conference?
Lee: A conference designed for Asian American singles that focuses on Career issues (Marketplace), having a personal ministry (Ministry), and finding a suitable partner (Marriage).
Q: What are your core values?
Lee: We have five: 1) A heart for obedience; 2) A heart for China; 3) Having an eternal perspective; 4) The Priesthood of the ordinary believer; 5) Retail Christianity
Q: What is unique about this conference?
Lee: The conference gathers a very homogeneous group of Asian Americans between the ages of 25-35 years old from all parts of the country and Hong Kong. Instead of workshops we will have small “huddles” of five attendees each meeting with outstanding practitioners of “Lay Ministry”. There will be 8 keynote sessions by 4 different speakers over the 3 day weekend. The conference venue is embarrassingly well appointed and the recreational activities of horseback riding, skeet shooting and square dancing are unique.
This conference’s teaching is especially encouraging to young adults who are are called of God to the marketplace, but not necessarily called to vocational Christian ministry. Read more information about the conference, details, speakers, schedule, etc. and view the conference flyer (links to a page with PDF).
Personal note – my brother will be attending this conference and actively participating, maybe even hang out for an extra day at the “gorgeous area with a pristine, mountain and lake setting, and lots of options to do outdoor sports like skiing, snowmobiling, etc.”
