East Region Update (from Andrew Lee)

On Saturday, October 16, leaders from various Asian Indian churches came together for a Discernment Conference to discuss the need to call the Lord’s workers for the next generation. The program was sponsored by the Princeton Forum and hosted by New Brunswick Theological Seminary. Presenters included Dr. John Coakley and Dr. Jessica Davis from NBTS, Rev. Dr. Jacob David of St. Paul’s and Resurrection Church, Rev. Dr. Andrew Lee from ISAAC, and Rev. Dr. Anand Veeraraj of the New Jersey Indian Church. The seminar was well received and there are plans to target the next conference for youth and young adults.

At the end of September, The Common Ground Project sponsored “The Next Generation Consultation” at McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago. This invitation only event gathered approximately fifty church leaders and seminarians from different denominations and ethnic backgrounds for mentorship and networking, collaboration to identify common problems churches face, and small group discussions to confer about sound ministerial practices. ISAAC was represented by Board chair, Dr. Russell Moy, and East Region Director, Dr. Andrew Lee. Andrew will remain engaged in this project for the next year through monthly teleconferencing, email, and scheduled future meetings.
