This collection contains the proceedings of the first conference, held in San Francisco, May 1955,
the second conference, 1958, and "The Chinese in the United States and the Chinese Christian
churches" by Horace R. Cayton and Anne O. Lively, a survey conducted prior to the first
conference to provide information and points of discussion. C.C. Hung discusses the beginnings
and purpose of the conference (see File Folder 2), "We all have a sustained interest in our ministry.
We all need to share our problems and experiences. There are many things that we cannot do as a
single church or a single denomination, but in unity and cooperation we can achive our goal. We
should not be discouraged if we cannot find a solution for all our many problems, but at the very
least we will have a better understanding of the existence of the problems and face them more
realistically." Papers and discussions included evangelism, worship styles, leadership, differences
between China born and American born Chinese, the teaching and use of both Chinese and
English, social service needs in the community, and stewardship and financial issues.
