Before coming to Tyndale Seminary in 1990, Dr. Lam was a lecturer in Church History and Theology for 12 years at China Graduate School of Theology, Hong Kong. During this period he was Visiting Professor at Fuller Theological Seminary, Regent College and Tyndale Seminary. He had also served on the pastoral staff at Princeton Chinese Church (Princeton, New Jersey), Chinese Rhenish Church (Hong Kong) and Chinese Presbyterian Church (Toronto). Dr. Lam teaches in the Chinese Ministry Program and Canadian Chinese School of Theology at Tyndale, and serves as teaching pastor in Mississauga Chinese Baptist Church.

In addition to various journal articles, he has written more than 20 books in the field of historical and exegetical theology. His publications include A Half Century of Chinese Theology, 1900-1949, an interpretation of Chinese Christianity during a period that lays the foundation of the worldwide Chinese Church today. His most recent book on contemporary Protestant theology (published 2017) is the forth volume in a series entitled Christian Theology in Development. This series covers the Patristic Church, the Medieval Church, the Reformation Church and the Modern Church. Dr. Lam is a frequent speaker in Chinese churches and conferences in North America.
