Pastor Morgan


 

Rev. Dr. Morgan Wong

Morgan’s Christian heritage can be traced back to his great grandfather when Scottish missionaries landed in China during the 19th century. He was born and raised in Hong Kong to a Christian home. It was until his high school years that he was born again. Upon his completion of middle school, Morgan came to Canada to further his education.

During his first year of college, he felt the Lord called him to full-time Christian ministry. He enrolled to Canadian Bible College (B.Th.) and University of Regina (B.A.). The Lord led him to pastor in Montreal Chinese Presbyterian Church where he started the English ministry and worship service while he attended McGill University and Presbyterian College (M.Div.) for ordination.

In 1996, God brought Morgan with his family to Vancouver Chinese Presbyterian Church as the senior minister. Besides pastoring the congregation, he led some members to the Holy Land and involved in a few short-term mission trips to Africa; Ghana, South Africa and Namibia. In 2011, Morgan graduated from Carey Theological College (D.Min.).

Rev. Jason Byassee

Jason Byassee teaches preaching at the Vancouver School of Theology in British Columbia, where he holds the Butler Chair in Homiletics and Biblical Hermeneutics. His primary vocation is to reinvigorate today’s church with the best of ancient and contemporary wisdom for creatively faithful living.

He is a contributing editor at Christian Century magazine, and has written widely on church and culture in such places as Sojourners, Christianity Today, and the Vancouver Sun. He is a native of North Carolina, where he pastored Boone United Methodist Church during a period of growth from 2011-2015.

His recent books have engaged questions of church revitalization in specific geographies (Northern Lights: Resurrecting Church in the North of England and with Ross Lockhart, Better Than Brunch: Missional Churches in Cascadia), reading the bible for preaching and life (Surprised by Jesus Again and Psalms 101-150), and technology and ministry (Following: Embodied Discipleship in a Digital Age, forthcoming with Andria Irwin).

He and his wife Jaylynn are ordained elders in the United Methodist Church, and have served in ministry together in BC at Tenth Church, a multi-site megachurch, and at First Baptist Church in Vancouver. He was recently a visiting fellow at St. John’s College at Durham University in the UK.

They have sons who are 18, 16, and 13. Things break in their house in Port Moody.
