GivingTuesday | Early Giving Begins Today!
We have invested in Asian American Women Ministers through our program, PastoraLab, in the last three years. The program is comprised of:
(1) Five cohorts with a total of 44 women ministers in 2024
(2) An all-cohort retreat
(3) When Women Preach Podcast (over 5,000 downloads).
Two cohorts (LA and Orange County) meet monthly in-person, and three cohorts are hybrid. All are facilitated by seasoned Asian American pastors/scholars.
This GivingTuesday, on Tuesday, November 28th, our goal is to fundraise $20,000, which may potentially SUBSIDIZE up to 12 new participants & ISAAC’s overhead cost in 2024. Each participant costs $5,000 annually for a two-year program that equips Asian American women ministers with organizational leadership skills, mutual learning, and empowerment through mentorship to advance their pastoral leadership. Early Giving begins TODAY!
By 2024, we aim to add one additional NYC/NJ hybrid cohort, for a total of 5 nationwide cohorts:
1) NYC/NJ Cohort
2) LA Cohort
3) Orange County Cohort
4) Bay/PNW Cohort
5) NE/SE Cohort
We hope you will consider joining our mission to advance equity at the pulpit, and continue to equip Asian American faith leaders!
