2023 Multi Asian Gathering
May 3-4, 2023
The Multi Asian Gathering is a mission movement of Asian leaders (clergy and laity) to celebrate our unity and uniqueness in mission and ministry in The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS).
The purpose of the Multi Asian Gathering is to bring together Asian leaders from diverse Asian backgrounds, ethnicities and cultures in order to address common mission and ministry topics we face such as next-generation ministry, leadership development, theological education, church planting, discipleship, colloquy programs and cross-cultural missions. We desire to network and form meaningful relationships with all cultures and expand our interaction with LCMS leaders and entities.
Thank you LCMS Office of National Mission, Lutheran Church Extension Fund and Concordia Seminary St. Louis for your support of the Multi Asian Gathering!
