Project Name: PastoraLab for Asian American Ministers
Description:

PastoraLab for Asian American Women Ministers was created by the Innovative Space for Asian American Christianity (ISAAC) and collaborates with the Center for Asian American Theology and Ministry at Fuller Theological Seminary. PastoraLab equips Asian American women ministers with the knowledge, learning, and empowerment to advance their pastoral leadership for thriving congregations. It addresses the particular challenges and opportunities Asian American women ministers face from a historically minoritized social location. Pastoralab is made up of three cohorts of women -- two in Southern California and one nationwide -- that are facilitated by both a minister and scholar. Participants follow a field-based curriculum that reads the Bible from Asian American lenses and generates constructive Asian American hermeneutics, organizational leadership, and economic and ecological stewardship to thrive in their ministries. The program will also conduct a nationwide survey on the status of Asian American women ministers in Asian American churches and gather quantitative data to help move Asian American churches towards more equal pulpits.
