What is your ministry?
I am in charge of Christian education at my local church. I design and supervise Bible studies and teaching. I also preach occasionally in both English and Chinese. I am also part of the pastoral team. I am currently pursuing a Masters of Theology., and I intend to become a Ph.D. student after I complete my MTh. I also teach in my Bible college as an adjunct faculty.
What do you hope to gain from participating?
I hope to become a disciple and a disciple-making disciple in the biblical sense. I also hope to have someone motivating and helping me to become a pastor-scholar as I am pursuing my Master of Theology and eventually my Ph.D. studies. I hope to gain some “cheer-leaders” in my life who understand what I am pursuing, able to advise me, and motivate me forward to complete my studies, as I often find myself lonely in the pursue of my theological education.
What is your leadership role?
I am part of the pastoral team consisting of 8 leaders who supervise the small group leaders and some of us also lead personal small groups. As a church staff, I am also part of the 14 core who meet with the top 5 members (i.e. senior pastor, deputy pastors, and elders) regularly. I preach occasionally in weekend services. Occasionally I am asked to teach a Bible study or a seminar at our affiliated churches which my church has planted or adopted.
