Nearly 200 members of the North American Pacific/Asian Disciples (NAPAD) community are making plans to meet in Seattle, Wash. for the 16th Biennial Convocation. The theme of the convocation is "Be Hope for the World" and will take place at Seattle University from Aug. 4-7. The theme is derived from Rom. 15:13 and Heb. 3:6.

Watkins will preach during opening night worship on Aug. 4; Tseng, president and executive director of the Institute for the Study of Asian American Christianity will speak at the evening plenary session Aug. 5; and Hertig will address the convocation Aug. 6.
