Workshop: The Art of Preaching in Asian American Settings (Nor Cal)

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!

Daniel WongThe 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. For more information, see Daniel’s website at www.tyndale.ca/~dwong/ and check out his article “Preaching in a Multicultural World.”

    I was delighted to have an opportunity to address the pastors and lay leaders about Asian American preaching. I was enriched by the discussion and continue to seek conversation partners on this area.

    As a follow-up I have started a section on my web site about Asian American Preaching – http://www.tyndale.ca/~dwong/viewpage.php?pid=32

    DJ Chuang interviewed me about the event – http://djchuang.com/2010/what-about-asian-american-preaching/

    I preached on Sunday at Bay Area Chinese Bible Church and that message is an example of Asian American preaching where I am cognizant of the context and implicitly included the congregation and my experience in the sermon on “Getting Back in the Game” from John 21:1-23. Can you find them?

    That audio sermon for the 1st service Traditions at Bay Area Chinese Bible Church is found at http://sermon.net/bacbc. I also spoke at the Connections contemporary worship and made some adjustments for that sermon. That sermon is not posted.
