About This Gathering
Thirty.Network is gathering 30 Asian American pastors and church leaders in their 30s (and under) for 30 hours of honest conversations about life and ministry. This invitation-only event will connect 30 pastors into a relational community with access to mentoring, coaching, and ministry opportunities for the next 30 years.
This gathering consists of intimate and interactive discussions with one another to share, to grow, and to invest together in one another's ministry and personal development. Every participant (and you!) will come as both a learner and a teacher; you will come both to receive and to share. At this gathering, we will have engaging conversations around topics like:
- how to lead well for a lifetime,
- leadership development stages,
- discipleship pathway,
- leadership pipeline,
- and more!
This gathering is not your typical conference with lectures and monologues. Instead of running through a parade of a couple dozen speakers, we hang out with one seasoned pastor for a day to go deeper and get a richer experience. We will also learn from each other, as iron sharpens iron. We are making this gathering a trusted environment and safe place for you to gain wisdom and insights for your life, marriage, and ministry. To make it so, this gathering is by invitation only and space is limited.
