Emerging from the Chinese Church

About

Some people know who I am, but most don’t, so that’s a good thing 😉  On this blog, I get to rant about the Chinese church (more specifically the Chinese Church in Southern Ontario) and I get to go on a journey, slowly but surely, towards a new understanding of CHURCH.  I want to emerge from the chinese Church to becoming part of the universal CHURCH.  I want to hear from God, follow Jesus, be led by His Spirit towards a fresh, new look of CHURCH.  Now what does that look like?  Join me to find out! 😉

  1. Just surfed on. I’m from the westcoast and recently finished a seminary degree with a focus on Chinese (Asian) cultures, specifically the second gen. Out here a number of second-gen pastors are church planting or wanting to. Tried looking for similar churches in TO but couldn’t find any. Any second-gen Asian type churches in TO do you recommend? Drop me an email!

  2. Hey shelaine,
    There’s no 2nd gen asian church that I know of… I guess I could suggest Westside church in Mississauga, http://www.westsidechurch.ca/. They are mostly predominantly 2nd gen korean canadians. In terms of chinese churches, there are not many 2nd gen churches… the closest one is probably Cornerstone Christian community church, http://www.cornerstonechurch.on.ca/index.htm. I only know that these churches are mostly run by 2nd gen asians, however, I am not sure of what they are like.

    I believe Toront is still going through a transitional phase in where 2nd gen asian christians are becoming the leaders of their “inherited” church while slowly, new churches/communities are being formed which are distinctly different than their parent’s churches. This has been a slow process, but it is emerging.

    Hope that helps!
    Shu
