With great thankfulness in my heart, I have an exciting announcement to make! I have just accepted a call to serve as Interim Assistant Pastor at Brooklyn Chinese Baptist Church (BCBC) in Brooklyn, NY. I will be driving up and moving into my apartment on Thursday and Friday, December 8-9. My primary responsibility there will be to pastor the English-speaking congregation, preaching weekly and leading the other weekly services (Bible study and prayer meeting). I will also have additional teaching, outreach, and administrative responsibilities. My first sermon as Assistant Pastor will be Sunday, the 11th.
I have visited BCBC several times over the last few years, even preaching there this past April. I have a number of connections in the church and with other ministries in NYC, so this is not a blind move. Nevertheless, moving to NYC will present some unique and interesting challenges. My apartment is small, but it’s a short walk to the Church. I will be moving to New York in the middle of winter, so that represents a whole set of challenges by itself.
I am excited to begin this new work! This opportunity is an answer to prayer. I invite you to pray with me as I begin this new phase of ministry. Pray that I would be sensitive to God’s word. Please pray that I would be diligent and obedient to God’s will. Please pray that I will adjust to the new environment, and that I will be quickly integrated into my new Church. And please pray for me and for the English congregation as I preach next week.
Over the next year, I will be sending regular email updates with prayer requests and information about the ministry. If you can commit to praying for me, or if you just want to receive regular updates, please email me to let me know. You can also subscribe by clicking the link below.
Thank you for your continued prayer support. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to you all!
