The Asian American Pastors Leadership Community is a 2-year process that’s developing a selected group of Senior Pastors who are next generation Asian Americans (through a strategic partnership between L2 Foundation and Leadership Network).
During the group’s first meeting in June 2008, the pastors were interviewed regarding their leadership insights. These interviews have been incorporated into this newly released concept paper, “Changing the Metrics: The Benefits of Measuring Devotion and Obedience, Not just Numbers” by Pat Springle. Here’s an excerpt:
“Today, people in our churches—and especially young people—want to devote their lives to a cause that’s bigger than themselves,” observes Ken Fong, pastor of Evergreen Baptist Church in Los Angeles.
“In our church,” he reflects, “we’ve had to change what we measure. We no longer use size as our primary metric. Instead, we spend time and effort analyzing the compelling intangibles of the Spirit’s work: devotion, love, and obedience.”
