North America ’s (ACNA) Committee on Mission and teaches church planting at Gordon Conwell Seminary in Massachusetts.
A significant number of new churches and missions have been planted

single Northeast Ohio Congregation, three Networks have been birthed.
Now, with the partnership of the Midwest Network, there are four
Networks in one region. The region, called The Heart of North America,

Network moniker) and the Midwest. Doc also helps provide oversight for

with orthodox Anglicans in Ohio and ultimately accepted a call as
pastor of an emerging church in northeast Ohio. This congregation,

congregation of over 400. Silas also serves as the Network Leader and
principal missionary of the Asian Initiative (AI), a targeted ministry
designed to respond to immigration from Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Korea
and the Philippines to North America.
Under Silas’ leadership, AI seeks to respond to the challenges
presented by a rich cultural diversity present across the US and Canada
and to address the tensions and opportunities associated with such
cross-cultural mission. Launched in December 2007, AI has become a
visible and mission-oriented community, providing a significant witness
of the love of Christ to Asians while planting congregations within
Asian communities in North America.
In addition to the strong presence of Richmond
Emmanuel Church in the Vancouver area, AI is planting a daughter church
of Richmond in Toronto – Toronto Emmanuel Church. This emerging work
will ultimately makes its home as part of a major development project
that includes two life lease apartment buildings for seniors, a
community center and a 300 seat church. This creative plan places
Toronto Emmanuel in the center of the Asian community which offers a
multitude of ministry opportunities.
Silas holds a Bachelor’s Degree from the Music Department at the
Chinese University of Hong Kong and received his Masters in Divinity
from Nashotah House Episcopal Seminary, Wisconsin in 1987. He was
ordained to the priesthood by the Rt. Rev. Peter Kwong, Bishop of the
Diocese of Hong Kong in 1988. Silas is currently participating in a
Doctor of Ministry program at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena,
California and expects to complete the degree in May 2011. He and his
wife Michelle have two sons, Ignatius and Athanasius.
