“Asian American Theology: Promise and Challenge”
As the Asian American population surges upward, and the number of Asian American Christians with it, the need for serious theological reflection that serves the changing needs of the growing Asian American church as well as the need for greater clarity with respect to the principles, means, and ends of Asian American theology will continue to grow
The colloquium hopes to gather Asian American theologians and clergy in dialogue to identify major issues facing the Asian American church, issues that have long-term consequences for the future of Asian American Christianity. Topics include issues of authority (especially along inter-generational and gender lines) and civic engagement.
