2 next gen Asian American leaders recognized

February 21, 2009

Brad Lomenick of Catalyst (described as “a leadership development company in Atlanta“) complies a monthly list of young influencers. Having heard John Maxwell define “leadership is influence, nothing more, nothing less,” these lists notes young leaders in our generation. In the mix are two Asian Americans:

  • Charles Lee – Charles is the cultural catalyst and pastor at New Hope South Bay in CA, a founding member of Just One (addressing poverty and slavery), and a professor on the side. [September 2008 edition]
  • Eugene Cho – pastor in Seattle of Quest Church. Also soon to launch a new organization focused on global poverty. You can watch a video introducing the idea here. [July 2008 edition]

Good to see these two acknowledged in this list. Having met both of them, they’re doing some great things. I’ve also met a number of other Asian American leaders in my journey, and perhaps some of them will be recognized in a future list.

It’s one thing to be a leader in the Asian American community. It’s a different thing to be recognized as a leader in mainstream multiethnic America. Just as it is one thing to be a leader in the Christian subculture versus being a leader in the mainstream of society.
