The Letter of NAPC Moderator
Greetings in Christ! We are National Asian Presbyterian Council (NAPC) and thank for your partnership.
Actually, we are you. We are Asian and we are composed of over 550 Asian Presbyterian churches in theUS. We are Burmese (8), Cambodian (4), Chinese (17), Filipino (15), Indonesian (12), Japanese (18), Korean (410), Laotian (7), Taiwanese (44), Thai (5), Vietnamese (12) churches that together bring to the PC(USA) denomination our collective labor, witness and perspectives about the work of Jesus Christ. We present our concerns to the national church and also, by way of the NAPC leadership, create ways and means for us Asian Presbyterians to unite and minister together.
Thank you for your support and the NAPC Sunday Offering will go a long way to sustaining Asian Presbyterian current ministries and creating new ones. Donations may be sent to NAPC - c/o Rev. Takako Suzuki Torino, 17 E. 97th St, New York, NY 10029.
God’s peace and blessings be yours,
REV. EMMANUEL G. ORENDAIN
We are grateful to Rev. Mei-hui Chen Lai, as our Asian Congregational Support staff from the Presbyterian Mission Agency. She is dedicated to help grow our Asian congregations. One of the way she is doing that is organizing programs throughout the country to train and equip our leaders (elders, deacons, clergy). The next Study Program will be held at Princeton Theological Seminary on 5/14-5/16/14 on "John Calvin, the Teacher-Pastor and His Ministries."
Join all the Asian Congregations in the 47 Day of Lenten Devotions from Ash Wednesday 3/5/14 to Easter 4/20/14. Discounted copies are available at $1.65 each.
The Asian Convocation will occur before General Assembly in Detroit, MI on Thursday, 6/12/13. This will be an exciting time where Asians, young and old, from all over the country, can congregate, meet and exchange ideas with other fellow Asian Presbyterians. Our moderator Neal Presa will provide inspiration to make this a time of joy to build connections and vision for our greater church. Come!
