Just got back home yesterday after the historic Connext conference – a leadership gathering of emering South Asian Christians. It was an amazing conference indeed – so many leaders, their vision and passion, diversity of ministries, stories etc. I am deeply humbled to see what God is doing with the next generation of Asian Indians all across the US & Canada.

Over two and half day we had some 150 leaders, 25 seminars, 21 exhibits, 5 worship sessions, 5 meals, 4 testimonies, 3 plenary talks, 3 musical concerts and 2 bible studies. There were lots of fellowship time, meal time discussions, networking and simply hanging out together. So many new friendship have been forged between musicians, seminary students, youth workers, counselors, church planters, pastors and leaders across denominational affliations and languages groups.

Everyone sensed God is doing a new thing in our time. There were much openness to collaborate and learn from each other. There is lots of excitement among next generation leaders. They show exceptional commitment to reach and disciple their generation. The NY organizing team showed remarkable commitment to voluneerism, teamwork, servanthood, excellance and stewardship.

If you were not able to make it, you have really missed something. But the conference proceedings will be uploaded soon on connext website. Pls visit – Most of the talks and seminars will also be published as a book later next year. And watch out for future connext conferences.
