Rev. Dr. David Vásquez-Levy speaking at The First Chinese Church of Christ in Hawaiʻi
January 20 @ 7:45 am - 12:00 pm
Rev. Dr. David Vásquez-Levy will attend The First Chinese Church of Christ in Hawaiʻi on Sunday, January 20, 2019 where he will be preaching at the first service and bringing greetings at the second service. The theme of his message will be “Spiritually Rooted Leadership for a World on the Move.”
All are welcome to hear a committed pastor, nationally recognized immigration leader, and sought-after speaker. His work on immigration has led him to serve as a consultant on various documentaries and contribute a faith perspective to the national conversation on immigration—including speaking at a congressional briefing and participating in two immigration consultations at the White House. Vásquez-Levy is the author of various publications that explore migration stories in sacred texts and in people’s lives. Vásquez-Levy currently serves as the president of Pacific School of Religion (PSR), a 153-year old interdenominational, progressive Christian seminary located in Berkeley, California with denominational partners that include the United Church of Christ. PSR is dedicated to training theologically and spiritually rooted leaders for social change. PSR has deep ties to Hawaiʻi and the Pacific Basin, including a Doctor of Ministry program focused on developing the theologies of the Pacific islands. President Vásquez-Levy, along with several leaders from communities across Hawaiʻi, are partnering to strengthen ministry in the Aloha state.
