An Intersectional Learning Space
Since 2006, the Innovative Space for Asian American Christianity has provided research and resources for scholars and church leaders who engage Asian American Christians. Today, ISAAC continues to raise culturally-rooted spiritual leaders led by a team of scholars, pastors, and civic leaders.
We create a third space of learning where leaders in the academy, church, and community can collaboratively advance the development of Asian American faith leaders. Based on mutual learning & empowerment, we provide mentorship, hosting webinars on tangible leadership skills that advance institutions and communities, publishing journals & resource books, and telling our collective stories through our podcast.
