Equipping Church and Academy


It is hard to believe that ISAAC has existed for five years! I am grateful for the chance to serve as Executive Director and am proud of our accomplishments.

Upcoming Activities  


Asian American Christianity - A four week study program (Nor Cal) 

What can an Asian American perspective add to our understanding and sense of calling for Christian work, ministry, and mission? How might we read Scripture with Asian American "eyes," proclaim the Gospel and worship with an Asian American "voice," and serve others with Asian American "hands"? These classes will explore Asian American faith, culture, identity and calling in both personal and corporate discipleship. These classes will use ISAAC's Asian American Christianity Reader (2009).

The four-week class begins April 22, 2012 and will be led by Viji Nakka Camauf, Russell Moy, Tim Tseng, and Russell Yee. The registration fee is $50. Contact Viji Nakka Camauf for more information [Email Viji ]


◊ Asian North American Doctor of Missiology Cohort (So Cal): With Fuller Theological Seminary's invitation, the first Asian North American Doctor of Missiology Cohort will start in Fall 2012. Cohort members will be equipped to reflect on their ministry and leadership journey to transcribe, translate, and transmit for the next generation. For more information, visit: [Fuller SIS Cohorts]


◊ New book! Available April 2012Worship on the Way, by Russ Yee

* Is there such a thing as Asian North American Christian worship?
* How can Asian North Americans interpret their Christian faith through the lens of their cultural identity?
* What aspects of Asian culture may illuminate and enrich Christian worship?

Pastor and author Russell Yee set out to answer these questions, and ended up writing a book that invites readers to create their own uniquely contextualized worship experiences.

Features sample resources and templates for creating your own prayers, litanies, poems, and spoken word pieces!!
