conversations: faith + life

Join us with Robert Ming on March 1st from 7:00-8:30 PM PST

Priority Living Speaker:

Robert Ming

Valedictorian of his class at Pepperdine Law School, successful law career (including clerking for Judge Ito during the OJ trial), and the founding of Quadrant Law Group. A two-time Mayor of Laguna Niguel California, author of two books, on the board of trustees for a private school, a leader at church, and a father of four great kids, Robert was living his dream life. But, life doesn’t always go as planned. The path to success isn’t always up and to the right.

Missing from the list above is a strenuous campaign for the Orange County Board of Supervisors. A two-year-long commitment with 400 volunteers and hundreds of thousands of dollars raised. A clear leader in the polls all the way until…he lost … a loss that led to a period of brokenness and surrender to God.

In the next chapter of his life, God brought Robert to a pivot point where He changed his life direction but didn’t tell him where he was to go next. Join us for Priority Living on Monday, March 1st, as Robert shares how God helped him to step forward in faith.

33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,
and all these things will be given to you as well.

what is priority living?

A monthly gathering at the Capital Club in downtown San Jose, (but currently virtual due to Covid19) featuring marketplace speakers, networking, and small group interactions to nourish and equip people for life and work.

why does priority living exist?

Silicon Valley is the cradle of technology, startups, VC funding, and innovation. While none of these are evils in themselves, money and notoriety often drive their success. As a result, money and success are gods in the Bay Area. Tech companies and businesses set the pace and culture in the Valley. Real estate is ridiculous. People hustle to scratch out a living. And distractions abound. 

Priority Living exists to help people reorder their lives putting GOD first, FAMILY second, WORK third, and CHURCH 4th. 


  1. TEACHING – Every month we bring in top notch communicators whose faith is mature and practical. We believe the priorities of life are clearly outlined in scripture. Through strong biblical teaching we believe we can reorder our lives to reflect the priorities of the Bible and in turn help others to do the same. 
  2. MENTORING/MODEL FAITH IN CHRIST – We are relational people. We need each other. No man or woman is an island. Isolation causes depression and anxiety. By mentoring and modeling our faith in Christ, we provide an environment of love, acceptance, and accountability. 
  3. IMMERSION/SERVICE – Sometimes we just need to jump right in. That’s the best way to learn and grow. As Jesus sent out his 12 disciples two by two to preach the gospel, heal the sick, and bring goodness into the world, we will do the same. We affirm the Great Commission, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded of you.”
