Asian pastor leading Whites? — May 18, 2019

Asian pastor leading Whites?

In years past, Korean pastors like myself were told that few white people would sit under a non-white pastor. This has largely proven true with only a few exceptions here and there. But a new generation is rising…one that not only is more tolerant of other (non-white) perspectives, but is actually seeking them out so as to enrich their own. What this means for us is that whereas in the past a truly multicultural church was mostly wishful thinking, the possibility of such a thing is much more likely now.

What is your personal calling or vocation? — October 31, 2018

What is your personal calling or vocation?

What previous generations searched for in life was its meaning, significance, and purpose. You know, the timeless question of what is the meaning of life. In recent years, there’s a lot of chatter about calling. In my life experience, I’ve found the word calling to be varied and broad in its meaning and application.

The most powerful process I’ve experienced to date that helped me to discern the essence of my personal calling is related to this life visioning process now called Younique.

Get Bible Based, Personal Breakthrough with a Plan to a Dream Job

Will Mancini explained this process was 10 years in the making: Younique launched as a new training company that brings a simple and powerful Life Plan experience to believers everywhere. It’s not just a brand new life planning process. It’s the first personal calling and life visioning experience for the church, thru the church to release the church.

The official website for this Younique company that helps churches and individuals discover their personal callings is – Younique is a life-long process of discovering and living out your unique life call.
