Meet Pastor John & His Family
John was born in China and grew up in an atheist background. After graduation from college in 1998, he was diagnosed with a serious heart problem and could die in a few years. He began to think about the meaning of life and how to face death. His brother shared the Gospel with him, and by God’s grace, he became a Christian in 2000 after one year’s struggle. He began to serve in his local churches in 2008 through preaching and teaching. In 2017, he was called by God for full-time ministry, so he went to study at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, and got a Master of Divinity degree. He and his wife Addie have four children: Esther, Matthew, Lucy, and Tom. In 2021, his family moved to Spartanburg and served in the East Asian church.
