AMMiC at 2017 ACNA Provincial Assembly

The 2017 Anglican Church in North America Provincial Assembly, with the theme of Mission On Our Doorstep, is an opportunity for everyone across the continent to gather and be united “as church”. As part of the Assembly, there will be many different workshops, networking events, and sub-conferences. AMMiC will be leading a sub-conference on Asian and Multicultural Ministries. The presentation team, led by Bishop Stephen Leung, will share the experience of ministering to Asian immigrants in North America.

In this day and age, with so many nations becoming our next door neighbours, the vision revealed to the Apostle John at Patmos has become an imminent reality. How can the Anglican Church in North America grow strong multi-ethnic ministries that are engaging and relevant to immigrants and their families? What examples are there to sparkle our imagination and creativity in ministry?
