  • Mercer Island PC 3605 84th Avenue SE Mercer Island, WA, 98040 (map)

Youth / 2nd Generation

Theme: Identity in Christ as An Asian-American

This convocation will focus on the psychological journey of Asian Americans with immigrant parents, exploring the challenges and blessings of growing up in multiple worlds. The presenter will discuss the importance of forming a personal identity, examine traditional Asian values that interfere with one’s growth as a Christian, and propose considerations of reclaiming one’s family stories. Participants will be invited to engage in small group conversations to share personal experiences and further explore topics discussed.

Journeying across the ocean to the United States can be tumultuous, filled with hopes and worries. Even after arriving in the Land of Freedom, challenges can continue to arise. Dr. Huang will discuss the psychological and spiritual journey of Asian/Pacific Islander immigration. She will explore forms of cultural adaptation and changes in racial identity encountered by refugees/immigrants during enculturation. Impacts of racial prejudice and internalized racism will be examined. Dr. Huang will also address how these factors present challenges to immigrant families, their churches, and ministries.
