    The Baptist Union of Victoria (BUV) has three strategic priorities for our current season of ministry: to develop pioneering leaders, to connect better with younger generations and to embrace cultural diversity. This chapter begins to explore issues for BUV in addressing these priorities through training next generation immigrant leaders, especially Karen and Chin from Burma (Myanmar). The chapter is based on an overview of the Christian Research Association literature on immigration and youth cultures and implications for BUV training, alongside consideration of relevant BUV research, conversations and strategy development. It outlines possible future ministry development and further research and training needs.
