Roy was born and raised in Vancouver. He is currently a student pursuing the BBA program at SFU Beedie School of Business. Roy’s spiritual journey began in 2008 at Vancouver Chinese Evangelical Free Church (VCEFC) and eventually joined LLC’s family the following year. At our annual Journey Retreat and Winter Conference, he developed an intrinsic bond with God that prompted him to receive baptism during the Easter of 2016. Roy had served on a local missions trip in Vancouver called Youth With A Mission (YWAM) to deepen his understanding of the brokenness in our city.
Realizing he has a passion and heart for administrative duties, he received a calling to serve our church and to further His kingdom by taking on the position of EM Administrative Assistant in 2019.
Jesus. We believe the church belongs to Him. He is our Great High Priest (Hebrews 10:21) and our Cornerstone (Ephesians 2:20) on which the church is built upon. All leaders are ultimately called by Him and from whom all leaders seek their guidance and counsel.
The ECC is the leadership team specifically serving the English Ministries at Lord’s Love Church. The team is comprised of men and women who have a heart, vision, and passion to guide the operational and spiritual aspects of the English Ministries. Our ECC group is made up of a department head, pastor, supervising deacon, and general members. Each member carries a specific role pertaining to assist in the planning and overseeing of certain areas within the English Ministries (Worship, Fellowship, Outreach, Discipleship, Service, Spiritual Disciplines, and Youth).

Our hope is that any ministry or event we hold would fall into growing our church in one of the areas listed above. As a group, we are striving to be servants in helping our church grow in three areas:
The Deacon Board is made of men and women who provide their vision and oversight over the spiritual and operational side of the church. Deacons (translated as “servants”) are selected during our voting process at our Annual General Meeting. The different roles within the Deacon Board are Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, and Deacon Board Members. Along with our pastoral staff, the board meetings serve to pray and plan for the overall church direction and administer ministries that fall in line with the vision. Each Deacon oversees a specific department, which includes: Worship, Fellowship, Evangelism, Missions, Christian Education, Caring, Children, Facilities and English.
