[Chinese Webinar] 迎接人口结构变化的祝福和挑战:圣公会李添嫒中文事工中心
June 30, 2016 10:00 pm – 11:00 pm EST
Please note that because the presenters and majority of attendees of this webinar will be on the West Coast of the United States, this webinar is being offered at 7 PM Pacific Time (10 PM ET).
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.

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.
