I am a husband, father, pastor, technology geek, and writer based in Boston, MA. I am a pastor at Boston Chinese Evangelical Church. My responsibilities include overseeing our English speaking ministries across our two campuses, as well as serving on the Board of Elders. This is my personal blog where I focus on “practical thoughts and thoughtful practices.” I do not actively blog or write as most of the content I produce finds a release through my preaching.
But when called upon, I have had the opportunity to share insights and reflections about leadership, preaching, strategy, race & ethnicity, and anything else related to life and ministry (which can include almost everything).
Preaching & Actual Sermons
On the topic of preaching, you can also find my sermons from various venues I’ve preached over the years. You can listen or download sermons, all free of charge. (Not that they’re worth paying for anyway…)
Nowadays, you can find my more recent sermons online at my church’s website.
“Who Are You?” (the Stalker Version)
I was raised in LA where I attended UCLA. While in college I met Karen, my future wife. We have three sons, all attending (or grew up attending) public schools in our great city of Medford. We have one daughter who is no longer with us.
We moved to the Boston area in 2001 because I joined the staff at my current church.
I love reading, efficiency, strategy, innovation, technology, and logic. My hobbies include reading, gaming, learning Krav Maga, and spending time with my family. If you’d like a bit more info, you can view an abridged CV here.
Chinese Heritage Church Ministry
I also write about issues around Chinese heritage churches. I even came up with that somewhat clunky description to describe the type of church I serve in. That is, a Chinese heritage church is a church with a Chinese heritage by folks who were ethnically Chinese and spoke some Chinese dialects. But as the Chinese diaspora plants roots in various countries, a Chinese heritage church may likely develop and evolve. Will Chinese heritage churches stay predominantly ethnically Chinese? Will there be a gradual trend towards multi-ethnicity? Given that Chinese heritage churches are already so multi-cultural and multi-lingual, only God knows the future.
How Can I Contact You?
You can contact me via e-mail. But please know that these days, I check email infrequently. And I’m constantly catching up. You can also reach me through my church.
