Rocky Chan is the Pastor of Missions at the Oversea Chinese Mission church, located in the heart of Chinatown in Manhattan, New York. As a teenager growing up in church, Rocky avoided short term missions at all costs. But the Lord is good and funny and, in the 21 years he’s been a pastor, Rocky’s gone on a total of 30+ STMs. He’s convinced a believer’s spiritual growth is held back unless he/she participates in missions. Rocky and his wife Minna enjoy talking about God, laughing at memes, and good sarcasm. Even though they’re both New Yorkers, they lived in Boston when the Red Sox won the ’04 series.
