Owen was born and raised in the “Old County.” No, not China, but “Old Sacramento in California.” Owen completed his BA in Strategic Business Management and a Master’s degree from Multnomah Biblical Seminary.
In 1991, on a mission’s project to Macau, Owen’s heart began to be aligned with the heart of God for the lost. Owen decided that he would invest his entire life to the things that last eternally and make an impact on the Kingdom of God. On this same mission trip, God blesses him with having Grace as his wife. Owen and Grace have been married since 1993 and have two daughters, Faith and Hope.
Owen is currently the English Pastor at CCIC- Cupertino and a Santa Clara Police Chaplain.
Grace was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to US when she was 6 years old. She accepted Christ at 7 years old. She has a BA in Communications from Mills College, heading towards TV Broadcasting. But after going on her first mission trip to Macau, Grace wanted to serve God full-time. Equipped with a Masters in Pastoral Studies and minor in Women’s Ministry, Grace has been discipling the next generations of Christ followers in both youth and young adult ministries. Grace is married to Owen since 1993, who is the English pastor at CCIC-Cupertino. Grace is the Young Adults minister. They have two daughters, Faith & Hope. Grace is a foodie, enjoys being part of local & global compassion projects and indulging in Korean dramas.
