裝備眾教會,牧養新世代

1. 福音使命萬古彌新

最近的氣候很詭異。世界好像並沒有變暖,而是變得更任性。當今的社會環境和全球氣候難以捉摸,基督的教會需要有嶄新的視野,才能在快速變遷的時代傳承福音使命。

華人教會正面對世代交替的強大壓力,年輕世代渴望學習如何在快速變化的環境中調適自己,傳統的牧養模式無法說服年輕世代留在教會,教會也找不著合適的青年領袖接下牧養的棒子。世界雖然不斷改變,福音卻萬古彌新,面對年輕世代的出走,教會的下一步在哪裡?

從2012年起,神賜我一個異象,為華人教會尋找一套牧養新世代的門訓哲理,要能堅持永恆的福音真理、又能適應新世代的性格、並兼顧未來的社會處境,重振新世代對福音的信心,並化解教會世代交替的困境。

2. 校園是社會的浪尖

今日校園,明日社會—校園是社會變遷的浪尖,而教會是明日社會的燈台。教會務必採取主動的姿態深入校園,不可固守城池,才能回應未來社會的趨勢。

--被忽略的基本事實--

1)      中國背景的85/90/95後除了年輕,還具有獨特的文化性格,必須從跨文化宣教的視角去重新認識。

2)      教會缺乏年輕人服事更年輕的校園族群,職場與校園的牧養須同時解決。

3)      留學生人數的成長率主要來自本科生與高中生,而大多數的華人教會與校園機構,都沒有做好迎接本科生與高中生的準備。
 
我的事工目標,就是呼喚華人教會重視校園事工,用道成肉身的方式與學生打成一片,才有機會與學生一起學習,如何在瞬息萬變的新世界裡作主門徒。教會若放任自己逐漸老化,恐怕十年之內將在明日社會中完全邊緣化。

3. 門訓的異象是教會

好的門訓方法很多,為華人新世代量身打造的門訓系統卻付之闕如。很多人開始認識到在團契生活中進行門徒訓練對於牧養新世代的必要性,並開始訓練輔導團隊。

我相信,“門訓”與“教會”之間具有不可分割的關係。合神心意的門訓理念,不能只重視聖經的權威、基督的十架、信心的順服,還必須有與歷世歷代的眾聖徒一起建造基督的身體、一同建立那個永恆真教會的屬靈異象。

如經上所記:

“…祂所賜的有使徒,有先知,有傳福音的,有牧師和教師,為要成全聖徒,各盡其職,建立基督的身體,直等到我們眾人在真道上同歸於一,認識神的兒子,得以長大成人,滿有基督長成的身量。”(以弗所書4:12)

我認為,新世代的門徒訓練,必須整合教牧領導、社群再造、生命重整,與行動倫理,挑戰地方教會與信徒個人從永恆教會的異象出發,認識神對現今世代的旨意與自身存在的使命。

4. 裝備牧養新世代的工人

--教會急需的工作項目--

1) 研發向本科生傳福音的有效模式,特別是從未接觸過教會的族群;

2) 研發適合教會牧養新世代學生團契的門訓材料;

3) 研發針對85/90/95後情緒與心理問題的輔導訓練;

4) 澄清校園與教會的關係、提出有效合作模式。

但祂對我說:“我的恩典夠你用的,因為我的能力在軟弱的人身上顯為完全。”(哥林多後書12:9)

從2010年開始,我在基督使者協會配搭事奉,拜訪了美國十六個州、還有英國、香港與台灣的校園事工,透過與宣教前線的同工交流,我越發感覺裝備新一代校園事奉者的迫切性。

神呼召我們家走了一條不尋常的道路。我們沒有從教會或機構接受工資,始終獨立募款,接受來自家人與個人的奉獻支持。我們一家人陪伴我在費城西敏神學院攻讀新約釋經博士班,期間老二典兒、老三勉兒陸續誕生,愛妻樂恩為家庭格外勞苦,我們在恩典中蹣跚前行,身心都承受極大壓力。神暴露我們的軟弱,與靈命上的破口,在艱難的事奉中試驗我們的信心,我們只能承認自己一無所能,只願神憐憫施恩、成全祂自己的旨意。

我們格外感謝神,感動基督使者協會的周大衛牧師以及使者董事們給予我許多支持,讓我為新世代校園宣教的培訓事工做好準備,在使者的平台上發展許多實驗性計畫:

- 研發為青年職場群族量身的聖經輔導研習會(2012-)

- 85/90後專家會議,發表了使者85/90後培訓事工白皮書(2013)

- 籌畫拍攝北美新世代校園事工的紀錄片(2013-)

- 巴爾的摩華人差傳大會首辦專為留學生量身的宣教聚會(2013)

- 培訓新進使者校園同工,投入以本科生為主的校園事奉崗位(2013-)

- 在各校園主辦一系列的新世代校園事工研習會、門訓研習會、與向新世代傳福音的佈道會(2014-)

- 籌畫向本科生傳福音的“尋光之旅”學生福音營(2015-)

- 與地方教會合作開始向95後高中生外展的實驗性學生社團(2015-)

- 與其他校園機構合作、一起建立北美校園事奉者的聯絡網絡(2015-)

Tsun-En & Grace’s Family & Ministry Updates (October, 2016)

“They are your servants and your people, whom you have redeemed by your great power and by your strong hand. O Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of your servant, and to the prayer of your servants who delight to fear your name, and give success to your servant today,” ~Nehemiah 1:10-11a

1. Tsun-En & Grace’s Family Updates

- So far we have not called a prayer group for our mission. It’s our desire to constantly and systematically pray for our friends, supporters, and donors. Building the habit is harder than it looks. May the LORD help us start strong and persist in this.

- Jed and Zach started the Chinese school in this September. We are comforted that the kids all love their schools. We still need to help kids develop better discipline in the use of time.

- Our family are as busy as usual and strive to become more involved in the town-life of Glenside. Tsun-En keeps the habit of praying with some fellows at New Life Glenside Presbyterian Church (PCA), and we are still looking for a co-leader to host a future disciple group in our house. However, we decide to visit other community groups first while we are seeking partners.

Prayer item: Please pray for our prayer life as a family—not just personal devotions. We need to learn new skills how to teach our kids and ourselves to pray, and have a real relationship with Jesus.

2. Chinese Student Program of CMC 2016 (unrest prayer needed!)

- CMC 2016 in Baltimore now has over 1,300 registered, but the registration with CSP is still very slow, about 30 only. We are anxious to see over 144 undergraduate students to register with us. Our team has recruited enough staff/counselors/helpers. But now where is the sheep? Please join us by your prayers to mobilize Chinese-speaking, undergraduate, international students to live a disciple-life and devote their lives to Christ! You can see our program here:

https://trello.com/b/a3UaXlKa/cmc

- We are excited about the cross-collegial Worship Team of nine musicians just formed (two from Penn State, one from Stony Brook, two from U of Delaware, the captain from NC, counselor from Delaware, and the coach from COM).

- We are excited about the role-play-game (RPG) module designed for the use of CSP. The team has been meeting and working since this May. Please pray for each team member who volunteers their time and energy without any compensation. It will be a three-hour module for the students to experience cross-cultural communications with many unexpected challenges and fun!

Prayer item: We heard from many churches that their outreach to the undergraduate students have not been very successful in the past few years. That would impact our invitations to the churches to bring their undergraduate students to come. In fact, it is our desire to inspire those few undergraduate students who did come to faith and join church worship to be encouraged and challenged to reach their fellows in the campus. Please pray with us that the LORD will raise up many spiritual leaders from this younger generation of international students.

3. Campus Ministry Training

- AFC Online Campus Ministry Training have completed two lessons with 27 campus ministers and associate staff. We are thankful for their dedicated participation and the learning opportunity for ourselves to hear from them the frontiers’ perspectives and anecdotes.

- We had one unfortunate incident in the Souderton Club on 9/23. Someone broke the wall with a slamming door. This is in fact the second incidents since we had this high-schooler outreach program. The Souderton Mennonite Church is concerned but forgiving. We are trying to communicate more clearly with the students about their responsibilities of using the church facilities. Please pray that we would have the wisdom and loving heart to talk to the students, many of whom are unbelievers.

- AFC has started the internal discussion on how to systematically training our new Campus Missionaries before they are sent to the field. If the LORD wills, Tsun-En wishes to pioneer a more aggressive training project to achieve this goal.

- Please pray for Tsun-En’s preaching in the mission conference of Chinese Bible Church of Lancaster on Oct 9th, and evangelistic outreach with Pittsburgh Chinese Church Oakland on Oct 14-16th.

Prayer item: Please pray for the effectiveness of the online training program, and the presence of God in the preaching engagements.

4. Discipleship Training

-The Chinese churches in the North America, by and large, produce bible study group leaders and Sunday school teachers. But they have not grown life coaches, student mentors, and fellowship counselors to meet the needs of current trend of campus ministries in the North America. We are concerned and praying for more suitable training designed for this need.

- We will host a series of biblical counseling training at AFC: How People Change Conference (5/19-21), Help Others Change Conference (11/3-5). We are also planning on a special training of life coaches, student mentors, and fellowship counselors, likely in September, 2017, in the New England area.

- We continue the process of planning a How People Change Certificate Program in Taiwan by the fall of 2017. We are thankful for the sponsorship of Family Counseling Center and the help of Easter Gau, our trainer’s commitment.

Prayer item: Please pray for the design of the How People Change certificate program and our endeavor of training new trainers.

5. Progress of Studying

- Tsun-En just finished teaching the extension course for CESNA on Hermeneutical Principles on 9/29-10/2 at Richmond, VA. About 20 students participated. It’s a good opportunity for Tsun-En to sharpen his academics. Now there are 20 student exegetical papers in development.

- Tsun-En is starting an online course on Introduction to Biblical Theology in this Fall.

Prayer item: Please pray for Tsun-En to be able to continue his French and German studies during this very busy schedule.

6. Friend-raising & Fundraising

- We are currently raising fund to sponsor the post-editorial work of Tsun-En’s eight-lecture seminar on biblical counseling recorded in Taiwan this summer. The need is about USD2,500. If we finish this project, the material can be used to entry level training of biblical counseling, to be used both in Taiwan and US. Would appreciate your support and prayer.

- Because of the addition of our family health insurance plan, our fundraising duty has increased to $4,725 per month. We are very grateful to find sufficient deposits from our donors that are just enough to cover our new health insurance plan for September and October. We thank you our friends and donors for your dedicated supports to our mission and the needs of our family. We are preparing our Christmas family greeting cards for you all.

- We are committed to visit our friends in Taiwan and Hong Kong every summer as a family. That would cost us $7,000 in flight tickets each year. Would appreciate your support and prayer.

Prayer item: Please pray for our wise management of our finances and our increasing faith in serving the LORD, without concerns or worries because of fundraising.

May the LORD bless you and keep you.

Tsun-En & Grace’s Family & Ministry Updates (September, 2016)

“This at last is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” ~Genesis 2:23

1. Family Updates

Grace and I make every effort to involve in the community life of Glenside and be more nourished in New Life Glenside Presbyterian Church that we regularly attend. If the LORD wills, we will co-lead a community group in our house, as early as mid-October.

While Grace and I are working hard to stabilize our daily schedules filled with unfulfilled tasks, the LORD is leading us into a new kind, fresh & pleasant kind of intimacy and unity. While the stresses of lives are not taken away, we increasingly appreciate the wisdom of God who made us two into one through our marriage.

Starting in September, we are no longer with CHIP for the health insurance of Zachariah and Nehemiah. We are not covered by any insurance while we are in the process of joining AFC’s employees’ health insurance plan. We are anxious not to have injuries or illness in this interval of time.

Prayer item: Please pray for our family to stay focused on God’s grace and healthy physically.

2. Campus Ministry Training

We are very excited about the launch of AFC Online Campus Ministry Training. Twenty-seven people have registered, predominantly AFC’s full-time campus missionaries.

The Souderton Club has kicked off on 9/9 at Souderton Mennonite Church. Twenty-six high schoolers and eight counselors had showed up, half of them to be new faces. We are thankful that Rev. Tim Bentch, the Senior Pastor of the church, his wife and his daughter, visited us and gave a welcome speech.

Tsun-En is going to lead two evangelistic outreaches; one in Cornell University (9/16-18), the other in University of Pittsburgh (10/14-16).

Prayer item: Please pray for the effectiveness of the online training program, and Spirit-filled messages in the two outreaches.

3. Discipleship Training

A new How People Change certificate program is in the process of planning by Tsun-En, Easter Gau, and FCC. We wish to send Easter to Taiwan to train the trainers of this certificate program, and hopefully launch the program in Taiwan by the fall of 2017.

We are also planning on hosting two How People Change training conferences at AFC training center in May and November, 2016, for level I and level II training. Our specific goal is to equip the campus missionaries and student counselors reaching the Chinese international students.

Prayer item: Please pray for the design of the How People Change certificate program and our endeavor of training new trainers.

4. Chinese Student Program of CMC 2016

CMC 2016 in Baltimore as of now has had over 1,100 registered. We are looking forward to 3,000 registers this time. In the Chinese Student Program, we are expecting 160-200 Chinese international college students and counselors.

The Chinese Student Program will focus on cross-cultural, surrendering disciples, and gospel ecosystem. We pray that the LORD would raise younger Christian leaders from the so-called post-90/95 generations. Feeling unlikely? But that’s what we are confident to do.

Prayer item: Please pray for the process of recruiting counselors, staff team, and promotion.

5. Progress of Studying

Tsun-En will be teaching the extension course for CESNA on Hermeneutical Principles on 9/29-10/2 at Richmond, VA.

Tsun-En is developing a new curriculum on Introduction to Biblical Theology, which will be taught for a long-distance course in this Fall.

Prayer item: Please pray for Tsun-En to be able to continue his French and German studies during this very busy schedule.

6. Friend-raising & Fundraising

There are many new Chinese/Taiwanese seminarians coming to WTS this year. We are looking forward to knowing them and serving them.

We are committed to visit our friends in Taiwan every summer as a family. That would cost us $7,000 in flight tickets each year. However we deem it necessary as we perceive a clear calling to advance the biblical counseling training programs in Asia, and our children would need to use this opportunity to maintain their ties with our home country.

Prayer item: Please pray for our increased duty of raising $1,725 per month to cover AFC’s Health Insurance Plan, in addition to our current duty of raising $3,400 to cover Tsun-En's payroll and taxes.

May the LORD bless you and keep you.

Tsun-En & Grace’s Family & Ministry Updates (August, 2016)

“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name, you are mine."
Isaiah 43:1

1. Family Updates

It's very hot in Taiwan. But Grace, three super-active boys, and Tsun-En visited our family relatives and in-laws in Taiwan. We deem it very important for our littles to know and build relationships with them.

We had a joyful meeting with Dr. Vern and Dr. Diane Poythress, Tsun-En's academic mentor at WTS, during their mission trip in Taiwan. It's such a blessing that Tsun-En's professor also has a heart for this Island.

We seized every opportunity to follow up with our health checkups during Tsun-En's intensive ministry schedule. We must admit the fact that we are no longer young and must learn how to maintain our health for the sake of the Kingdom of God.

Prayer item: Please pray for the smooth completion of our visa renewal, health checkups, and wise use of time in Taiwan until September 1st.

2. Campus Ministry Training

We are very thankful that Melody Shao, an AFC campus minister at NC has joined Tsun-En in planning for AFC Online Campus Ministry Training with sober ideas.

Tsun-En has completed and uploaded four training videos unto AFC's virtual classroom. While the materials have become available, more editorial works may be required along the way.

There seem to be increasing demand for AFC's training ministries to develop synergy and integration. We need the LORD's guidance for spiritual discernment and coordination with other AFC leaders.

Prayer item: Please pray for the registration of AFC online campus ministry training in August and following interactive coaching sessions.

3. Discipleship Training

The three biblical counseling conferences in Taipei (7/21-23), Kaohsiung (7/28-29, 31), and Taichung (8/4-5, 7) seemed to be well-received beyond expectations. We were humbled in the Gospel messages we delivered.

The Family Counseling Center (FCC), an affiliation of China Reformed Theological Seminary (CRTS) is interested in exploring long-term partnership with AFC, to train the trainers of CCEF's How People Change Discipleship Program in Taiwan.

We are grateful that CRTS.TV agreed to edit the conference recordings to produce How People Change Training Videos. If the LORD wills, we will use it for biblical counseling training in US.

Prayer item: Please pray for our partnership with FCC and CRTS.TV would be fruitful and spiritually nourishing.

4. Chinese Student Program of CMC 2016

We expect over 150 college students to attend the Chinese Student Program of Chinese Mission Convention with us in Baltimore.

The Role-Play-Game (RPG) team has built up excellent team spirit, thanks to the leader brother Abraham Yeh and the help of his wife Joy Yu as well as the devoted coworkers.

We are excited about having Rev. Joshua Guo from Beijing, Minister Ray Peng from UMOT in Taiwan, and Elder Kris Wang to speak in our plenaries.

On the other hand, we are under more time pressure than before to recruit counselors and student leaders. We will work with them to develop interactive small group curriculum.

Prayer item: it's our deepest desire to see God raise up young spiritual leaders from among the China-background college students. Please join us in prayers.

5. Progress of Studying

Tsun-En is currently researching on the multiple themes of biblical theology (creation, Abrahamic Covenant, Mosaic Covenant, Kingdom of God, New Creation) in relation to the doctrine of Church.

Tsun-En will be teaching the extension course for CESNA on Hermeneutical Principles on 9/29-10/2.

Tsun-En is developing a new curriculum on Introduction to Biblical Theology, which will be taught for a long-distance course in this Fall.

Prayer item: Please pray for Tsun-En to be able to continue his French and German studies during this very busy schedule.

6. Friends & Fundraising

We attended the 13th Youth Mission Conference in July, the largest student mission movement in Asia, and met many senior campus ministers. We were told that nowadays Taiwan students desire to travel and study globally. We are wondering how God would unfold the plan of His global kingdom.

We were also surprised to see many Muslim laborers in Taipei Main Train Station. Chinese churches are facing an enormous opportunity to reach the Muslims. We hope to see more attention in missional discipleship in the CCCOWE on 8/22-26. May the LORD choose His servants to fulfill His tasks in a time as such.

We happily met many old and new friends in Taiwan. Your warm friendship have encouraged us in the path of faith. Please continue sharing with us your life updates that we may remember each other in prayers.

Prayer item: Please pray for our increased duty of raising $1,500 per month to cover AFC’s Health Insurance Plan, in addition to our current duty of raising $3,400 to cover Tsun-En's payroll and taxes.

We are looking forward to hearing from you. Please keep in contact via Facebook, We Chat, or email: tlu@afcinc.org.

May the LORD bless you and keep you.

Tsun-En & Grace’s Family & Ministry Updates (July, 2016)

“Where there is no vision, the people perish; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom's instruction.”
Proverbs 29:18

1. Family Updates

We come back Taiwan! The first week we visited Dr. George Leslie Mackay’s cemetery (馬偕墓). He was the first missionary to Taiwan, married a local, established the first Taiwanese church, and buried in Taiwan. He reminded us doing ministry from an eternal perspective. No more can be said. It’s just so inspiring.

Our third son Nehemiah (2yrs) was born in US and never landed on Taiwan. Everything looks bizarre yet exciting to him. Strangely Zachariah (3.5 yrs) loved Taiwan’s milk products much more than American’s. Jedidiah (8yrs) with his bilingual capacity is unafraid of meeting new people. Travelling with three children is a constant challenge for us.

We are learning to exercise Chinese, picking up rituals, meeting subtle expectations, suffering heat, doing homework, and saving money at the same time. We are travelling back and forth between Taipei, Tanshui, Tainan, Taichung, and Kaohsiung. We will also visit Hong Kong for a few days.

Prayer item: Please pray for the smooth completion of our visa renewal, health check-ups, and many other administrative tasks with the government during our intensive schedule.

2. Campus Ministry Training

Praise the LORD that we were able to meet many church leaders from CBCGB and other local leaders in the Boston Young Adult Ministry Conference (6/25, CBCGB).

There are great demands in campus ministry, youn professional ministry, and returnees ministry in this area. We are planning the training with CBCGB in year 2017 for more strategic-planning conversations.

We have announced AFC Online Campus Ministry Training Program in AFC’s Campus Leaders Retreat in June. The training videos will begin uploaded in August with discussion questions and further reading recommendations.

Prayer item: Please pray for the successful preparation of the online training videos with good course materials.

3. Discipleship Training

We will host three biblical counseling conferences in Taipei (7/21-23), Taichung (7/28-29, 31), Kaohsiung (8/4-5, 7), and commend How People Change Discipleship Program (HPC) in Taiwan.

The Family Counseling Center (FCC), an affiliation of China Reformed Theological Seminary (CRTS) is interested in exploring long-term partnership with AFC, to train the trainers of HPC in Taiwan.

Prayer item: Please pray for the three seminars to be well-registered and make impact. Please pray for the executive meeting with FCC on Aug 23rd to bear good spiritual fruits.

4. Chinese Student Program of CMC 2016

We are still behind in the planning and coordinating of Chinese Student Program (CSP) of Chinese Mission Convention 2016 in Baltimore.

We really need the help of the Holy Spirit to call suitable counselors and student leaders to assist us in this event. The goal is to challenge China-background Chinese international college students to live out disciples’ lifestyle and be shaped as spiritual leaders.

Prayer item: Please pray for the solid collaboration and cooperation of 8 participating campus ministries to work together efficiently.

5. Progress of Studying

To teach is the fastest way to study. Tsun-En just finished teaching an extension course for Chinese Evangelical Seminary of North America (CESNA) on Doctrine of Predestination on 6/16-19. He will be teaching another extension course for CESNA on Hermeneutical Principles on 9/29-10/2.

Prayer item: Please pray for Tsun-En to be able to continue his French and German studies during this very busy schedule.

6. Friends & Fundraising

While we are still behind in our fundraising (about 20% to our stated goal of $88,000 a year), we are grateful that both China Grace Christian Church in Blue Bell, PA (CGCC), and University City Chinese Christian Church in West Philly, PA (UCCCC) approved our application of missionary support.

These two are the second institutional supports we receive since Tsun-En is officially installed as AFC’s self-fundraising full-time staff, in addition to First Ithaca Chinese Christian Church, Ithaca, NY (FICCC).

Prayer item: Please pray for increasing of monthly support to cover AFC’s Health Insurance Plan. In addition to $3,400 of payroll, we need to raise another $1,500 per month in order to join AFC’s Health Insurance Plan.

Tsun-en and Grace, it is near tragic to read "Inerrancy and Worldviews Project abandoned"---this could be a critically important project in our needy world. I will pray about this project. The Poythress family is dear to us. We hope to see Vern and Diane soon while they are teaching in Taipei. Also hope to connect with some of the events in Taiwan you mentioned on your site.

Tsun-en and Grace, it is near tragic to read "Inerrancy and Worldviews Project abandoned"---this could be a critically important project in our needy world. I will pray about this project. The Poythress family is dear to us. We hope to see Vern and Diane soon while they are teaching in Taipei. Also hope to connect with some of the events in Taiwan you mentioned on your site.
