Richard was born in China and immigrated to Australia more than 20 years ago. He found faith in his 30s and was called, trained and ordained as a Baptist pastor with an MDiv from University of Divinity (Whitley College). He has more than 10 years of experience in serving on the frontlines of ministry within a complex cross-cultural church context. Before becoming a pastor, he worked in different industries, including information system development, import and distribution business and residential property development.
Richard is passionate about making disciples of all nations in a multicultural context and building up missional groups to bring the impact of God’s Kingdom into their neighbourhood and society. After over five years of researching, writing and practising, he has developed an evangelical program specialised in helping people with Chinese background to find faith in Jesus Christ.
Richard and his wife Renee have two children, one adult and one teenager. He has many hobbies, such as reading, hiking, gardening and music. Currently, he is exploring a new one – cricket.
