ENGAGE 4: ENGAGE Speaker Series 4: “Mooks, Midriffs, Myspace & More: Engaging Youth and Media Online

Pastoral and Laity Ministries and Chinese Christian Herald Crusades Herald Youth Center are proud to present our third ENGAGE (English-speaking Asian American Group Exchange) Speakers Series: This monthly series hopes to
build, equip, assist and rebuild lay leaders who serve Asian American churches. This first series focuses on Asian American Youth Ministry and the implications for leadership and developing discipleship. The series is partially funded by the L2 Foundation.

We hope that you join us as we fellowship and hear from some of the most innovative and engaging ministry practitioners.

This month’s ENGAGE Series will be facilitated by Jeremy Del Rio on the topic of “Mooks, Midriffs, Myspace & More: Engaging Youth and Media Online” The description of this workshop: Corporate profiteers produce and market media for a target youth audience they call mooks and midriffs — caricatures that exploit adolescent insecurities and hormones; a strategy described as “grabbing below the belt and reaching for their wallets.” The result: average teens now consume digital media for 72 hours each week and increasingly digest that media online in what the New York Times calls, “Websites Without Rules.” This workshop explores ways to more effectively reach this plugged-in generation.

Please RSVP by emailing Peter Ong at peter@palmny.org to confirm your attendance and participation.

[american born chinese pastor]
seeks to be that third place for those who are american born chinese [abc] in ministry.
here we may explore issues unique to the chinese church and doing ministry in that context
expand the intersection of asian american culture and christian faith
or simply expose what goes on in the mind of this abcpastor

this may be a bit ambitious or even naiive but i do hope that through the posts we can bring together different faith communities, passions for the advancement of the Gospel and the equipping of the body of Christ.

if you are an abc pastor or have any suggestions or would like to contribute to make this space evolve, just comment.
