Missions and the Chinese American Church
John Chow from the Chinese Mission Convention (CMC) and Isabel Lee of the Chinese Bible Church of Maryland share about the contributions of the Chinese Church to the Great Commission. They also share about the CMC Mission Alliance–a unique way for churches to grow in their mission’s engagement.
John is a trophy of God’s grace. His parents were sent by God to Indonesia from their home church in China. John was born in Indonesia. Later God called his father to pastor a Chinese church in Japan for two years before moving to the United States. John served in the Federal government for over 35 years in various management and leadership positions. Over the last 10 years, he has been serving on the National Executive Team for the annual Chinese Mission Convention mobilizing Chinese churches in the United States to join God’s mission in the world. John and Lorrie live in Washington DC area and have three married children and two grandchildren.
Isabel has been the Minister of Women’s Ministry since 2009. Since November of 2018, she also took on the role of Minister of Global Outreach Mobilization at CBCM. She graduated from Washington Bible College and Columbia International in Bible and Missions and has been in ministry since 1980. Her goal in ministry is Colossians 1:28 “We proclaim Him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ.” She serves women in the areas of discipleship, mentoring, encouragement, counseling and prayer through Bible studies, seminars and retreats. She strongly believes when women are strong spiritually and emotionally, they are positive influences to those around them. She desires to see many come to the saving knowledge of Christ, discipled and faithfully follow Him and serve Him. She prays, encourages and mentors the younger generation and trust that God will thrust them forth to the nations to reach the unreached.
