Vision

In this category there will be posts that relate to the future direction of our church (i.e. future church plants, future missions initiatives, future goals, and all the good future stuff)

UK Missions Project 2018

  This coming December, during the Christmas holiday, a small team of fluent Mandarin speakers in HMCC-HK and I will be heading out to the United Kingdom to participate in God’s mission. I have been invited as a guest speaker for the youth program at a family camp for Chinese people, who either immigrated to the UK or are expatriated in the UK due to college or temporary employment. After this family camp, we will stick...

Reflections on China Trip – 2018 October

For four days, I went to China with three other people to help teach on the topic of discipleship with our ALIVE Curriculum. It was an incredible trip filled with lots of praises and “God-moments.” I had some time to reflect on the things that God was doing in China and some convictions that God stirred up in my heart. Here are three things that God reminded me of (again): Multiply the Influence. As we were...

HMCC-HK’s BOLD Vision

    George Washington Carver once said, “Where there is no vision, there is no hope.” As Christ-followers, our greatest hope is found in Jesus. Once we learn to place our trust in Jesus for everything, we will find the freedom to love and serve Him out of gratitude. It is only then, we will start to gain a greater heart for Jesus’s mission and a clearer vision of God’s Kingdom. At HMCC-HK, we are...

2018 HMCC-HK Leadership Summit

  Photo Credit: Adventure Works Africa   By God’s grace, we have passed the 2-year mark as a church plant; and we will be celebrating our 3rd anniversary this coming September. What we have seen God do in our church in the last 2.5 years is nothing short of a miracle. We have seen many people place their faith in Jesus Christ for the first time, as well as many rededication of lives to Christ and His mission....

TEDx Talk at PolyU

Photo Credit: PolyU TEDx Talk Facebook Page   I’m grateful for the privilege and honor to share my story at PolyU’s 2018 TEDx Talk. As a communicator and preacher, I am always trying to find ways to share timeless truths to help others live out their destiny, as well as to make an impact on society. One big issue that has affected my life is racism, which comes in all different forms. At 5 years...

Why We Do What We Do

  Last Friday, we had an open mic for people to share their testimonies and brag about Jesus. It was probably one of the best set of testimonies that I’ve heard in a long time. People shared vulnerably and openly about their weaknesses and their situations, but the best part of it was that each person made much of Jesus. I love hearing stories of transformation, which are directly connected with the Gospel story. Also...

We Are Reaching Another Campus

Photo Credit: The University of Hong Kong   From the beginning of HMCC-HK’s journey, our purpose has always been about life transformation and the glory of God. It is hard to believe that we are slowly approaching the end of the two-year mark of our church plant. So far it has been a whirlwind experience, to say the least, but through it all, God has been faithful and good. Over the last two years, we...

#youmatter Movement

  Throughout history, whenever a need arises, the people who take action are the ones who transform the world. Instead of idly standing by, they decide to do something. Their actions, often times, stem from a conviction or a burden. They count the cost and take steps of faith in order to make a difference. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of...

The Hearts of Men

  Coming back from my recent trip to Cambodia, I was reminded once again about the evils of human slavery. As I looked at the issue, I couldn’t help but to conclude that everything starts from the heart. Since we live in a broken world, we try so hard to “fix” ourselves from the pain and hurt in our lives. This is where many of us turn to various things to numb our pain; but...

World Shakers. History Makers.

        I remember when our kids were younger and they all went to the same school. It was so much easier driving them to one location; but now, they all go to different schools. I miss those younger years when we were all together in one car. Everyday, as we got closer to school, I had one of them pray on behalf of all of us. Of course, we rotated the person...

HMCC-HK Call-Out Meeting

  Design by HMCC-AA Publications Team       It has been almost four weeks since the official announcement of starting HMCC of Hong Kong in 2015. There has been a great response. I’m encouraged and excited to see the 2020 Vision become a reality. I am looking forward to this call-out meeting because I believe God is stirring some of us to respond in faith and to be a part of this future church...

A Big God. A Big Announcement

        Here is the text of the video:   Hi church, I hope all of you are doing well. It’s hard to believe that everything got started right here in Ann Arbor back in 1996. God has been transforming lives and transforming the world since then. From that point on we have seen churches planted in Chicago, Austin, Jakarta, and Singapore. The reason why I wanted to take this time to share...

Global Band Missions Project 2013

  Photo by HMCC-AA Docs Team       I am excited to go to Cambodia and Hong Kong with some of our HMCC worship leaders in late December. Music is a universal language that everyone understands. This is why when worship happens in Spirit and in Truth (Jn 4:24), Jesus is exalted and great things transpire. After my trip to Asia in March 2013, I came away with several observations:   1) The Cambodian...

HMCC-AA 2013-2014 Theme

  Design by HMCC-AA Publications Team       Every September, as we start a new season of ministry, I would lay out the theme for the year. The purpose behind this is to help us, as a church to focus on what God is calling us to do for that particular year. It becomes our compass as we try to move towards the direction that God has revealed to us. In some seasons, the...
