Rev. Jack Lum | Associate Pastor
Pastor Jack Lum grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. His family attended a local Chinese church so they could interact with their Chinese heritage. It was there he accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and Lord when he was six years old at a summer Bible club.He received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Missouri at Columbia and worked at the electric company in St. Louis for about five years. He briefly explored a career in counseling. God, however, led and called him to full-time church ministry. After receiving his Master of Divinity at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Illinois he ministered at Chinatown churches in Chicago and Boston. His primary responsibility at GGCC is shepherding the English speaking congregation as an Associate Pastor.Pastor Jack firmly believes that “Jesus Christ is better than any person or any thing this world has to offer”. So, he’s a strong advocate of teaching and preaching to magnify the glory of God the Father, caring for people to fully experience the beauty of Jesus Christ, and encouraging followers of Jesus to live by the power of the Holy Spirit.Pastor Jack enjoys watching and playing sports of all sorts, the outdoors, exploring city neighborhoods, music (pop, jazz, classical, country, rock, folk), eating at buffets, and good war movies and documentaries. He especially loves spending time with his wife, Mary, and children, Jack Jr. and Josephine.
