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.

Anyone who is engaged in or is interested in Asian mission and ministry is welcome to register for the Multi Asian Gathering which begins at 2 p.m., May 3, after the Multiethnic Symposium concludes.

Registration: $25 for participants. Students and faculty attend for free.
Registration deadline: April 17.
