Praying Together for the future of our church

In 1979, BCEC moved into its new building at 249 Harrison Ave. and Pastor Fung became Senior Pastor, as Pastor Tan retired. Forty years later in 2019, our church is faced with many important decisions. We need to consider whether to sell 249 Harrison Ave. to allow the city to build a new school. We need to think about the future directions of our ministries in Chinatown and in Newton. We need to decide who should be the new Senior Pastor. In all these decisions that affect our future, we want to be united as a church to pray to the Lord to lead us and guide us. Here’s the link to the weekly prayer items.

Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me. (Ps 31:3, NIV)

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.
