What lessons have you learned about being an effective communicator among Asian American Christians? How can we equip one another and future pastors to preach faithfully and relevantly to the Asian American contexts? ISAAC believes that the most valuable insights come from practitioners who engage Scripture and theology with a careful reflection on the cultural contexts of their ministries. So join us and share your ideas at this free workshop!
The workshop features Rev. Dr. Daniel L. Wong, Assistant Professor of Christian Ministry at Tyndale University College in Toronto, Canada. Daniel grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was a full-time English Ministry pastor at the Toronto Chinese Baptist Church and then at the Scarborough Chinese Baptist Church for a total of 18 years. Over the past 10 years he has been teaching preaching as part of his course load. His D.Min. and one of his Th.M's are in the preaching area.
