Joining the Movement

  Graphics by Katie Chang       My journey started back in 2005 when I went to India. It was the first time where the realities of the sex slavery industry were brought to my attention. After hearing the stories of so many women and children who were enslaved, it broke my heart. Some of the girls were as young as 12 years old and they belonged to brothels in the heart of Mumbai’s...

Laying Down Your Life

  One of my passions is raising up godly men, who will set the example of being like Christ in all that they do, especially in the area of opposite-sex relationships. In a world where chivalry has been lost, I am trying to help men become the kind of husbands that the Apostle Paul describes in Ephesians 5:25-33. But it is not easy because it does not come naturally for us to be like Christ....

Fellowship of the Unashamed

  Recently at our college ministry, I shared the anonymous prayer called, “Fellowship of the Unashamed.” It is a good reminder of what it means to follow Christ and the decision that is required to live a radical life. The PROCESS of being a Christ-follower is a PASSIONATE lifelong PURSUIT. It is my prayer that we will raise up these types of Christ-followers in our generation!     I am part of the “Fellowship of...

#trending Series

  Picture by HMCC-AA Publications Team       This coming Sunday we are going to start a new 3-part series called, #trending. For those of you who are not very versed in social media, Twitter uses the hashtag (#) to track various words or topics that are trending. Anything that trends is something that is being talked about a lot in the Twitter world. In the same way, there are topics that are trending...

We Cry Out

  Picture by HMCC-AA Publications Team       We are in the middle of our Missions Week. Ever since HMCC got started back in 1996, we always had a vision that our church will participate in God’s mission regardless of the cost. It is too easy to make church about going to a service on Sunday and hanging out with people that we feel comfortable with, but Christ has called us to something greater....

Our Mission Series

  Designed by HMCC Publications Team       One of the hardest things about doing ministry on a university campus is the high turnover rate that we see every year. Students come and go. Sometimes students will graduate and stick around because of the church; but many will move on to different parts of the world. With every new academic year, the pressing need is to reiterate the vision and mission of our church....

Real Church

  Photo by HMCC-AA Publications Team       Church is a messy place. It is filled with messy people. This is why a church represents real life with real people. But God’s commitment to the Church, His Bride is phenomenal. This is why God is constantly purifying it and strengthening it. It is through the Church where the manifold wisdom of God is made known (Eph 3:10). It is also through the Church where...

Redeemable

  Photo by HMCC Publications Team       I’m excited to share our new series, “Redeemable” at our Access gathering for the college students. We have been trying to go through different books in the Bible for our series on Sunday. We just finished off our study on the Book of Hebrews. Now, in this new year we are studying the Book of 1 Corinthians for our Sunday sermon series. Usually for our college...

Run For Your Life

  This is a message that we need to hear so desperately in our generation. It is very rare to hear a message like this in a church on any given Sunday in the United States or in the world for that matter. Maybe this is the reason why the place of complacency and contemptous attitudes towards God is often found in the church. But this is nothing new. Even during the days of the...

Perspective Needed

  Over the thousands of hours of counseling in my ministry, there seems to be several themes that constantly come up. I have found myself helping people address the specific issues of purpose, pain,and perspective. Questions about God’s Goodness and Faithfulness always come up when people are in a spiritual desert or a spiritual valley. It is always hard to have the mindset and the thoughts of God when we are going through difficult times....
