The purpose of this study is to develop a strategy to raise and multiply godly leaders for the Vietnamese (ConvergeViet) Ministries in Converge Worldwide/Baptist General Conference-U.S. churches and then provide practical approaches for mobilizing, training, coaching, and releasing leaders toward their full potential.

Since the Vietnamese Christian population in the United States is less than 2 percent of total Vietnamese population in the United States of nearly two million, there is a great need to raise and multiply leaders in ConvergeViet churches in accordance with the command in Matthew 28:18-20.

The focus of this study is to equip ConvergeViet leaders or Christian workers in the United States with a better understanding of the need to raise and multiply godly leaders for ConvergeViet Ministries. This process includes contextually adapting coaching questions and modeling for long-term change, as well as developing guidelines for using this new model in ConvergeViet Ministries-U.S.

This study is divided into seven chapters. The first chapter provides a ministry profile of ConvergeViet churches in the United States, while the second investigates the need for leadership development among ConvergeViet churches. The third chapter gives theological perspectives for leadership development, and the fourth addresses theological perspectives for leadership multiplication. The fifth chapter develops strategies of raising and multiplying godly leaders for ConvergeViet Ministries-U.S., the sixth creates ownership of raising and multiplying leaders in ConvergeViet Ministries, and the final chapter describes the implementation of strategies for raising and multiplying leaders for ConvergeViet Ministries in the United States.

This study provides biblical foundation and principles of leadership as well as a practically reproducible model of leadership development for other recent immigrant churches in the United States.
