FCBC Experience: Attended FCBCLA since childhood. Member for 28 years. Service: Deacon Candidate (2 yrs.), Men’s Ministry (4 yrs.) Adult English-speaking Sunday School teacher (4 yrs.), High School Sunday School Superintendent (8 yrs.), High School Sunday School Teacher (12 yrs.), various other counseling/teaching.
Why are you considering joining the Executive Council? Since last year, I sensed the need to be more open to God’s calling and trusting Him to provide. I did not seek to join Executive Council. However, upon confirmation from others and answered prayer, I’m open to the opportunity to serve the church. I feel FCBC is at a crossroads in the way that we do ministry and am optimistic about how the Lord will use FCBC to impact our communities for Christ.
During law school, I clerked in various state and local agencies and served as a member of the Southern California Chinese Lawyers Association Board of Governors. During my time at FCBCLA, I have served in various ministries including youth camp, Hi-Koi, high school Sunday School, audio-visual team, ushering team, and on several Amor mission teams. I am considering joining the Executive Council because I hope to offer the vocational and legal training that God has blessed me with to serve Him in our church.
I prepare and review corporate federal and multi-state tax returns, financial statements, real estate/corporate contracts, audits, and account variances. In 1983, Deacon Cheuk Choi witnessed to me, and I have been coming to FCBC 37+ years. I have served as Trustee (9/2016-8/2019), Business Board member (9/2012-8/2015), interpreter (20+ yrs.) and pre-school Sunday School teacher (22+ yrs.). Outside of church, I volunteered at the Good News Club. With my experience as trustee and Business Board member, I am familiar with managing church property and reviewing financial statements which will bring value as a member of the Executive Council.
I held positions as choir member, Maintenance Director, CSAF President, Sunday School teacher, Building Committee Chairman, Restructure Committee Chairman, Deacon, and Executive Council member. Prior to my retirement in 2019, I was a practicing licensed mechanical engineer and owned a mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering firm in Southern California for over 20 years. I hold a Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from USC. It is my desire to see our church maximize our ministry impact through empowered leadership structures.Read More

I am a retired electrical engineer after 36 years in the aerospace defense industry. I graduated from USC with bachelor’s, master’s, and engineering degrees in electrical engineering.
I love God and His people at FCBCLA, all age groups and all languages, and desire FCBCLA to accomplish His will for God's Kingdom.Read More
