The Project Antioch Team of Jeremy Yong, Jeremy Eng, and Geoff Chang have learned much from their participation in the ministry of Capitol Hill Baptist Church (Washington, DC). They describe their collaboration on this project as follows:
… three friends who share a common history and love for the Chinese churches from whence we came. heard the Gospel from their preaching, were converted and discipled under their ministries, and though we are no longer attending those churches, our lives and hearts are still very much tied up with them. It is in our love for our churches that we’ve come to see the many questions and challenges that are facing Asian American churches today. These questions and challenges range from the theological to the practical, from the individual to the corporate, from the family to the church.
They’ve been a part of putting together this event, Asian Americans Building Healthy Churches: A Together for the Gospel Pre-Conference, this April 13th, 2010, in Louisville, KY. Jeremy Yong will host a panel discussion with Jeffrey Jue, Julius Kim, and Mark Dever. And the panel will discuss issues like these:
So what particular advantages do Asian American Christians have in living out the Gospel in their churches? And how does the Bible call Asian American churches to reform so that greater clarity is brought to the gospel? What can Asian American pastors do as they seek to build churches that reflect the character of God?
They hope Asian Americans Building Healthy Churches is a forum where they can think and learn together about how to minister the gospel to the Asian American community for the honor of Jesus’ name. Go to the event website more info and to register.
