Pittsburgh Theological Seminary will host the second of three Con.Fluence Conferences May 23-25, 2011. Con.fluence is a three-year project seeking to bring together pastors, Christian educators, and lay leaders serving in the areas of education and evangelism/outreach as well as scholars from related fields to arrive at a shared vision and future direction for Asian American churches.

Con.Fluence Project Director, the Rev. Dr. Timothy Son, assistant professor of Christian education and youth ministry at PTS, will lead the group in discussing how the scene of Asian-American churches is changing. They will identify these changes and what issues and concerns emerge from them. Among other topics, this year’s conference will address the pertinent issues relating to pastoral and church leadership and its transition from intergenerational perspectives.

This conference is sponsored by the Office of Asian American Leadership PC(USA) and Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.
