The present study established a relationship between the presence of intergenerational ministry (IGM) in Vietnamese-American churches and level of commitment to second-generation leadership development (SGLD). The author identified three Vietnamese-American churches that may be classified as high IGM and three Vietnamese-American churches that may be classified as low IGM. The author also created two scales: one to measure commitment to SGLD among first-generation Vietnamese church leaders and one to measure commitment to SGLD among second-generation Vietnamese church leaders. The commitment to SGLD was higher among the high IGM churches in both generations than it was in the low IGM churches. The dissertation offers reflections and recommendations.
