CRUSH Servant Leadership

CRUSH is a servant leadership program purposed to raise young future servant leaders from multi-ethnic and international heritages in the community. It connects young people groups to established community leaders, fellowship and workshop opportunities, various community services, music & art fest, retreat, and other events to equip and coach them as vital community servant leaders in the future.


About 7 months ago, we had the first CRUSH Luncheon with about 60 established community leaders and young future servant leaders. Everyone enjoyed the fellowship, hearing Mayor Hallman's message, young leaders' testimonials, and sharing heart and mind with other leaders.


The second CRUSH luncheon was aimed to strengthen the relationships formed in the first meeting and also set an plan for action for various activities to be conducted within this program. During the luncheon Mayor Hugh Hallman and Dr. Gary Kinnaman shared their heart and lessons they learnt working for the community. Pastor Sanghoon Yoo presented the future plan and the CRUSH program. In addition, we has stories of life experiences shared by two young women and their experience working in a multi-cultural environment.


The third CRUSH meeting was held on Saturday evening, March 12th, 2011. This meeting was geared to an informal gathering to build deeper bonds between eastablished commuity leaders and young servant leaders. About 80 community leaders and young future leaders gathered for a time of fun and fellowship, starting with dinner and followed by multi-cultural performances and DJ'ing. There was time for people to get together and learn from each others experience of working in multi-cultural setting.


On June 24 2011, TFC organized a dinner fellowship for the young people in the community to come together and brain-storm on ideas for how to mobilize people from the community to become servant leaders and serve others. To facilitate discussion, Open Space Technology format was used and this resulted in a great and stimulating exchange of ideas.
