For over 30 years, Rev. Chan has served as the Senior Pastor of Richmond Hill Christian Community Church (RHCCC), one of the largest churches in Toronto. He is widely known and highly regarded for his work in leading RHCCC from its roots as an ethnic Chinese church into a flourishing multicultural, multilingual, multigenerational missional church. Along with his call to church ministry, Rev. Chan is committed to equipping the next generation of pastors and leaders. He has taught courses at Tyndale on an adjunct basis since 1994. In this new chapter as coordinator of the Pastoral Ministry: New Generation Multicultural Church, he will combine his part-time work at Tyndale with continuing service to RHCCC. He will assume a mandate of providing leadership to this new program which equips Kingdom servants to serve multicultural and multigenerational churches in the new era.
