Pastor Pak joined ECC in Jan 2020. Born and raised in Hong Kong, Pastor Pak became a Christian at age 17. Seeking to pursue a career in sports science, he attended the University of Western Ontario in Canada, graduating with a B.A. in kinesiology and economics. During his university years, a retired missionary encouraged him to seek God and His kingdom. In response to this challenge, Pastor Pak dedicated himself to full time ministry. Upon graduating from university, he studied at Tyndale Seminary and graduated with a M.Div. in 1992. He also studied missiology in later years at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary.
Pastor Pak began his ministry as a youth pastor at North York Chinese Baptist Church in Toronto in 1992. After 12 years of fruitful ministry, the Lord led Pastor Pak to step out in faith and join an international organization to mobilize the Chinese churches in Canada for greater ministry involvement. He was later invited by another organization to instigate a diaspora Chinese ministry team and network. With a wider ministry mandate, it led to the sending of the Loh family to Hong Kong in 2011 to serve with the Hong Kong Baptist Theological Seminary. He has been enjoying teaching classes there since then. During these secondment years, Pastor Pak continued to expand the Chinese ministry team through mutual partnerships. He later also served at Cedar Fund and Yan Fook Church, particularly in the areas of global discipleship and missional nurturing. His passion is to see the church embrace her role in God’s eternal salvation plan. Through nurturing the church, engaging in integral missions, and reaching out to the least reached people groups, Pastor Pak desires to see the kingdom of God continue to expand while the nations come to know Him.
Pastor Pak and his wife, Jennifer have two sons, both attending university in Canada. As a family, they love tasting the diversity of food and activities in Hong Kong, enjoy exploring this amazing region and are sure to be found cheering on the Toronto Raptors wherever they are.
