AALC2008 Blogging

I’m in sunny Fullerton, CA for the Second Annual Asian-American Leadership Conference (AALC2008). I’ll try and do some live blogging. It’s definitely great to spend time with folk like Tim Tseng (ISSAC), Eugene Cho (Quest Church), and Gideon Tsang (VoxVeniae) just to name a few. I was pleasantly surprised at the East Coast turnout for this event. One of the things that I find valuable at these kind of conferences is the different voices and perspectives represented and not just from the stage. There are Asian-American pastors and leaders from all walks of life and traditions here. We all want to be good at what we do as leaders. We’re striving to be better. However, it’s ok that we are different. It’s ok to disagree and be a little uncomfortable at times. We’re here to learn from each other.

Lisa Espineli Chin started things off tonight by turning our attention as pastors and leaders towards rest and sabbath.

    LT — I heard from Eugene that you guys were able to hang out a bit. Sorry I missed you! I wasn’t able to attend the actual conference (right after Easter, yikes!) but maybe next time. I’m looking forward to hearing more of your thoughts on AALC…

    one of the things bloggers and facebookers (or is it facebookies?) have done at conferences is to blog about having a meetup over a meal or during a break. Twitter has worked especially well for that, too, especially noted at the recent SXSW.

[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.
