Pastor Dennis Liu
Pastor Dennis Liu oversees the English Congregation. Having grown up in a Christian family in NJ, he feels extremely blessed with a rich Christian heritage. It was during his high school years that he began to sense that the Lord was calling him into full-time ministry. At the time, he ignored the call out of selfishness simply because he wanted to make a lot of money and become successful in the world’s eyes.
Subsequently, he enrolled at Cornell University in the fall of 1996 with the intention of going on to medical school upon graduation. The Lord continued to work on his heart through his college years, and the calling of full-time ministry didn’t decrease but grew stronger.
During his junior year of college, he said to the Lord, “If this calling is truly from You then open up the doors, and I will walk through.” Lo and behold, the Lord arranged a divine appointment for him at a conference in Anaheim, CA where he met our Senior Pastor, Kenneth Kwan. The door opened up for him to come out to CA to minister after he graduated from college and to begin attending Fuller Theological Seminary. He knew this open door was from the Lord.
So in May 2000, he headed out to CA and began to intern at Vineyard of Harvest Church while pursuing a Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies at Fuller. Over time, the ministry grew, and he joined the staff of the church on a full-time basis as the minister to the English congregation.
In June 2005, he graduated from Fuller, and in 2007, he was ordained as a pastor. In 2011, he married Evangeline, who oversees the worship ministry of the congregation. They have two sons named Silas and Levi. They are excited about the future of this congregation and envision a church that plants many churches!
