Associate Pastor

CityChurch San Antonio

I will be speaking on:

BIPOC/Asian American Mental Health

Cultivating Restorative Community in (Mostly) White Church Spaces

As BIPOC in the evangelical world, we have unique mental health challenges and needs that can rarely be addressed by the predominantly white systems in which we serve. In fact, the system itself may be the source of some of our stress, anxiety and trauma. So how can we survive and even [GASP] thrive in our churches and ministries? Our best opportunity for sustainable peace is cultivating restorative community with other BIPOC.
