Even since my bishop Rt. Rev. Stephen Leung was consecrated in 2009, he immediately launched a mission platform called Asian Mission in Canada to facilitate the development and growth of Asian Christian churches in Canada.
Things are moving very fast and there will be an upcoming inaugural conference in March 21-22, 2011, called Discerning Contemporary Culture: Challenges & Christian Ministry in a Permissive Age, co-sponsored by
- Regent College Anglican Studies Program
- Carey Theology College & Carey Institute
- Hudson Taylor Centre for Chinese Ministries at Tyndale University College & Seminary
- Vancouver Chinese Evangelical Ministerial Fellowship (溫哥華華人教牧同工團契)
There are some top-notch speakers and scholars invited, including J. I. Packer (Regent), James Houston (Regent), David Pao (Trinity Evangelical), Brian Stiller (Tyndale), Warren Lai (Tyndale) and more.
I always believe there is no way to do ministry and arrive at the right praxis without first doing serious theological reflection. This is the chance to pick the best minds to understand how to do Chinese ministry in a Canadian context.
For those in Vancouver or even in the east coast who are interested in this, please help spread the word.
