Greetings from Taiwan! It is a privilege to be called to serve the Lord in China Reformed Theological Seminary (CRTS). I am called to be a God’s servant, a pastor, a scholar, a husband, and a father to two lovely children. My current main responsibility in CRTS is to teach Old Testament and Hermeneutics. One of my passions is to train future pastors and leaders how to preach and teach the Bible from a redemptive-historical perspective. Using a biblical-theological approach and a covenantal framework, they will learn to read the Bible in a Christ-centered way. Every passage will organically point to Jesus Christ and the Gospel.
Taiwan is a lovely place! However, my goal is not only to serve the churches in Taiwan, but also to adopt Taiwan as a strategic platform to help the seminary extend its theological education ministry in other regions. Thus, I was also appointed as the Dean of Overseas Learning to oversee all extension programs worldwide. It is my joy to bring the Reformed faith to other parts of the region, especially in East Asia.
Besides, my ministry has gone beyond theological education. With less than 3% of Christians in Taiwan, my wife, Eunice and I know that there are still a lot more ground to cover—seeking more opportunities to share the Gospel and planting more churches. Therefore, recently I have taken up an advisory role in a church planting project at XinZhuang Reformed Presbyterian Church (XRPC), in New Taipei City. It is a great joy that I can preach regularly and participate in the evangelistic activities at this church.
Meanwhile, my lovely wife, Eunice, has been my faithful helper to manage our household and home school the children. Nevertheless, she is also passionate about doing biblical counseling. As a matter of fact, Taiwan is a great place for my wife to serve and contribute her expertise since she has earned a M.A. in Biblical Counseling at Westminster Theological Seminary as well.
For many years to come, we hope that God will use our family not only to be a vessel to teach God’s word and to proclaim the Gospel, but also to be a channel of blessings to bring the riches of God’s grace and spiritual transformation to many people in Asia.
