Aaron was born and raised in Hong Kong; he lived there until the year he came to the USA for college. While he was still in Hong Kong he came to know about the bible stories of Jesus through the Catholic school that he was attending and he believed that Jesus is God; however, he didn’t truly understand the way of salvation yet. He came to embrace God’s saving grace in Christ while he was in college. After conversion, he returned to Hong Kong for a short while. During that time he joined a mission group called “Youth With A Mission,” in which he met his wife Christina. Later he returned to the USA and soon he began contemplating going into ministry. After finishing his M.Div. program at Golden Gate Baptism Seminary he became the Cantonese pastor at the First Baptist Chinese Church in Sacramento. Later he moved to Hawaii and served at the Honolulu Chinese Alliance Church. In 2009 his family moved back to California. He served at two different churches before joining Grace Community Church.
“I pray that God will continue to use me to proclaim His salvation as the Epistle of Hebrews does and use me to bless His church. I covet your prayers so that I may accomplish what the Lord has me to do for His church. Hobby wise, I enjoy gardening and horticulture. I hope to have the opportunity to visit the Holy Land before too long.”
Nick was born and raised in San Jose, California. He attended church as a child, but it wasn’t until his sister led him to salvation in Jesus Christ that he began to understand his faith. During high school, he became very involved with the youth group at his church and felt the general call to ministry since then. He then relocated to Los Angeles to receive a BS in Business Administration from Cal Poly Pomona in 2008, and worked as a web developer for a year at Dreambox Creations. Nick answered his call to ministry and joined Chinese Grace Baptist Church in October 2009, where he currently leads the English congregation and ministries for English-speakers. He completed his Master of Divinity at BIOLA University’s Talbot School of Theology, and looks forward to seeing God work in and through his life.
“I seek to deepen my relationship with God and trust Him to lead my life. I’ve felt the calling to serve Him full-time since high school and nothing is more exciting to me than to see God working in my life and others’ lives. I enjoy reading God’s Word, photography, guitar, basketball, volleyball, and anything related to technology.”
