About My Family

I was born in an atheistic family in China. Through the faithful witness of a young college student, the gospel was presented to me while I was studying in college. In 2002, I trusted Christ as my personal Savior. God indeed saved my life and changed my desires. To prepare myself to preach, I attended a Christian college and graduated from with a degree in the Bible.

While attending college I met my wonderful wife, Yuqin Guo (Grace ). She was led to Christ by her aunt's friend. She also grew up in a lost home. After graduation and marriage, Grace and I had the opportunity to serve the Lord in various ministries. The Lord has blessed us with two beautiful daughters. Priscilla is 7 years old, and Lydia is 4 years old. It has been a real blessing to raise our children in a Christian home.

About My Church Plant

At least 300,000 Chinese students and scholars are currently studying in the United States, and the number continues to grow. Nearly 200,000 Chinese nationals live in Metro Washington, D.C., alone. Most students and scholars return to their homeland without ever making a Christian friend or hearing the gospel. These future office workers, professors and white-collar workers are impacting China’s culture and its future.

As a gospel-driven church, our desire is to share the good news of Christ with them and prepare them to be Christian leaders and witnesses. We want to send transformed Christian leaders back to China who are prepared and committed to being ambassadors of the gospel for their own people and culture—to teach and plant house churches in China.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions in North America are in desperate need of hope. Ultimately, the only hope that’s going to last - in this life and the next - is the hope of the gospel. North American missionaries build relationships and share this hope in their communities and beyond.
