Dr. Paul Joseph Yang is a tireless worker for the gospel of Jesus Christ. He has a heart for the journey of the Hmong in America. His doctoral thesis focuses on a theology of liberation for the Hmong that helps the community find hope, strength and resource through their shared history of Exodus from Laos to the camps in Thailand and after years in the camps, migration to America. Today the children of the Exodus, the 1.5 generation are raising families, seeking a spiritual path and finding their way forward while their children, the second generation are coming of age and achieving amazing success in the new culture. Rev. Yang provides resources for these families in bridging the culture; navigating the relations between elders, parents and children all of whom are struggling to retain important and essential cultural values while also adapting to new mores, gender roles, and the cultural values of this society that can be in stark contrast to traditional understandings. Skilled in navigating these issues, Pastor Yang restores family respect, dignity, unity and self understanding while upholding the value of education, love of neighbor and respect for all. I have worked with Dr. Yang for many years and witnessed his intelligent, competent, faithful diligence on behalf of the Hmong community and transforming hope we have in the good news of Jesus Christ.
