Rev. Stephen Mma
I was born and raised in Taiwan. I learned about the salvation of Jesus Christ since I was in the grade school and I received Jesus Christ as my personal savior at age of 15. But I was not very serious about the relationship with the Lord until the junior year in college. During the last year of my college life, I rededicated my life to Jesus Christ and wanted to serve Jesus full time.After finished my citizen's duty to my home country, I went on to teach biology in a junior high school in northern Taiwan. In 1974, I came to the United States to pursue my graduate degrees in California and Iowa, however, I realized that the degrees did not satisfy me afterward. I was wondering around to find out what is the purpose of my life during those years, not knowing that God has everything planned for me.When I was still a graduate student, I met my wife, Paochen, a wonderful girl and we got married in 1981 and then God blessed us with two precious daughters, Stephanie and Phyllis. I have tried different jobs during those first couple years after I finished graduate school, finally, God led me to a two-year training program and prepared me to work in the eye clinic as a technician. In 1993, I figured that God did not forget my rededication and counted me as worthy to be a fulltime minister in the ministry, so God began to let me know that it was about time to put down my job and serve Him. By the Fall of 1993, I started my seminary training at Bethel Seminary, and finished it with a Master of Divinity degree in 1997.After I graduated from seminary, I began to serve in the Twin City Chinese Christian Church as a full time interim minister, the church I have been a member for more than 23 years. In February 2001, I was ordained by T4C as a full time Pastor to serve Him and His church till now.
