Russell Jeung (Associate Professor of Asian Studies at San Francisco State University) gave 4 talks at the first Asian American conference hosted by Bread of Life Church in Torrance, California, March 7-9. We recorded the first talk from Friday night. (Videos from all the talks may be made available later, but no guarantees.)
With permission from Russell Jeung, we are grateful for being able to post the first talk online. Here’s the audio (mp3, running time = 75:41) and slides from his March 7th presentation titled, “Daniel 2: Asian American Values of Wisdom, Community, and Humility” >>
Bread of Life is hosting me to present a series, “Asian Americans in the Lions’ Den: A Study of Daniel” in which I compare the Jews in exile to Asian American Christians. The series discusses how being Asian American relates to our faith. The titles are:
Great time sharing with about 180 Vietnamese pastors, wives, and women leaders at this Vietnamese C&MA pastors conference. They pull this together every other year. Good question and answer discussions, we all have the same heart, desiring to see the 2nd generation reached with the Gospel. Here’s the Powerpoint slides I spoke from, with Vietnamese subtitles:
L2 Foundation is a private foundation that seeks to develop the leadership and legacy of Asian Americans by providing support and resources. L2 Foundation serves ministry and professional leaders, empowering them to fulfill God’s calling.
bless & affirm & encourage & empower the next generation Asian Americans
connecting Asian American leaders for innovation and healthy leadership development
connecting & mobilizing Asian American legacy partners to invest in the next generation Asian Americans
These are all wonderful words that describe the exciting vision of L2 Foundation to invest in the next generation, also known as English-speaking 2nd generation. There is so much potential in this next generation, and our role is to discern the appropriate strategic initiatives that can make a greater impact to benefit many people. Often I’ve explained this at a 10,000-foot view, and I thought it’d be helpful to provide a historical review to show you what that actually looks like.
