Focus on Chinese Ministry in the Episcopal Church

This webinar took place on Tuesday, December 8, 2015 from 10:00-11:00PM ET. A recording of the webinar and copy of the slides are available below.

If you have experienced demographic change in your church’s community, if the racial distribution of your church does not reflect the racial reality of your public schools, if your church is going to start or has already begun to engage in a ministry to a culturally different group, whether or not that group is Asian, you are in the right webinar!

In this webinar, with presentations of Bishop, Rector, Chinese clergy and Chinese members of a brand new ministry, we will share with you:

  • our joys and struggles in ministry of the Li Tim-Oi Center (named for The Rev. Florence Li Tim-Oi, first woman priest in the Anglican Communion—1944) among Chinese immigrants,
  • our difficulties and achievements in meeting the challenge for an historically “Anglo” church located in a rapidly changing neighborhood with increasing Chinese immigration,
  • our collaborative endeavor to explore a creative way of doing new ministry under the guidance and leadership of Bishop, Rector, and bi-lingual Clergy,
  • and all in all, our story of ups and downs in creating a new model for sustaining Episcopal Church ethnic ministry.

Welcome! Join us in this webinar with open mind and questions ready!

Presented by 2014 ECF Fellow, The Rev. Dr. Thomas Ni, Executive Director of Li Tim-Oi Center and Associate Priest for Chinese Ministry, Church of Our Saviour, San Gabriel, California.
