About Our English Speaker

Rev. Andrew Lee, Ph.D.

Associate Director, Global Diaspora Institute

Dr. Lee has extensive experience serving in large Chinese churches and is the retired Sr. Pastor of the Chinese Christian Union Church in Chicago. He previously served in New York City as lead pastor of English Ministries and Interim Senior Pastor at Oversea Chinese Mission, Main Church.  


He was a recipient of the 2017-2018 John Stott Award for Pastoral Engagement from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

His academic experience includes being Director of Theological Education for the Northeastern Baptist School of Ministry and serving on the faculty of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He has taught as an Adjunct at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and New Brunswick Theological Seminary.


He has written for both the academic and church worlds. Most recently Dr. Lee was the guest co-editor of the spring 2024 ChinaSource issue on the Global Chinese Diaspora and authored a chapter in the forthcoming book, Pastoral Care to Diaspora.


About Our Youth Speaker

Rev. Brian Hsieh, ThM

Associate Pastor, Collin County Chinese Fellowship Church

Brian grew up in the Tampa Bay area in Florida. During his studies at the University of Florida, he had the opportunity to serve on campus and help in the youth and children ministries at a local church. It was during this time that the Lord gave him a passion for full-time ministry. Upon graduating, he moved to Dallas to attend seminary at DTS (ThM, 2011).


From 2010-2020, Brian served as a youth and then English pastor at Plano Chinese Alliance Church. He joined the staff at Collin County Chinese Fellowship church (CCCFC) in 2022.


Brian is married to Nelly, and together they have a daughter, Emery. Their hope and heart in serving in the Chinese church is that while language and culture may be the common ground that initially brings people together, it would be superseded by our new identity in Christ as believers.
