About My Family

My wife and I came to America from Indonesia. We were raised in a Southern Baptist church. We were baptized at the same time on July 11, 1981, at our home church, Baitani Baptist Church. Through Sunday School and youth fellowship, we grew and served God together. Finally God called us to surrender our lives to HIM. I followed the Lord and went to seminary and graduated in 1987.

We have two grown children and one grandson. Praise the Lord! We all live in California and are serving God together as a family and solid missions team at Rancho Evangelical Church.

About My Church Plant

Rancho Evangelical Church was planted to see lives changed and people saved. The Rancho Cucamonga area is very diverse. There are many Southeast Asians living in Southern California. Our passion is to see people saved and churches planted, particularly among Southeast Asian peoples.

We know that many families are hurting and do our best to serve families and teenagers. We have seen the gospel preached through youth events and family seminars. It is our desire to grow a healthy church to multiply the gospel throughout Southern California.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at namb.net/send-me.


For churches as they prepare to send out missionaries and chaplains to push back lostness in North America. For receptive hearts among the people in communities where these missionaries and chaplains will serve. For churches and individuals to partner with missionaries and chaplains and to give of their time and talents. For the Father to send more workers into His harvest to join these missionaries.


Connect as a Sending Church or a Supporting Church with a missionary’s work. Commit to long-term missions support with your missionary partner. Be involved in supporting missionaries and their families. Pray for missionaries.
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant. Visit sendnetwork.com/PlanterFunding for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
