Zhang Family - Rock Chinese Church, Seattle
ABOUT US: Jacob Zhang was born in mainland China and grew up in a Christian family. Jacob’s father is a key underground house church leader in China. Jacob witnessed how his father and that generation was persecuted while remaining joyful and thankful to God. The impact of his father’s faith led him to continually serve the Almighty God. Jacob also experienced persecution. He was removed from high school because of his faith, and he still does not have a high school degree. Jacob came to Dallas Baptist University in 2008 with a special exception to be equipped for God’s kingdom work. He received his undergraduate degree in Christian studies in 2012 and his graduate degree in global leadership this year. Before this ministry, Jacob and his wife Joan served in Chinese Students Fellowship at DBU for seven years. When they traveled to Seattle, they saw this great need of Gospel among the Chinese students in the Bellevue area. They knew God was calling them to move there and start a Chinese church.
ABOUT THE CHURCH: Rock Chinese Church is a new church plant meeting on the east side of Seattle, focusing on the unreached Chinese population in Bellevue. Our desire is to build a healthy congregation that can impact both the greater Seattle area, as well as helping to support the underground church in China. Why Seattle? Many people asked the same question when the president of China visited Seattle as his first stop for his recent trip to America. There are 11,703 (11 percent) Chinese living in Bellevue (the key east -side city) according to the 2010 census. Many are highly educated people who moved here to work in high technology companies. Chinese people care deeply about their children’s education and choose the east side for the schools. Many work in restaurants and moving companies to provide for their families. Chinese students are studying in different colleges in Bellevue such as Bellevue College. They all have the same dream—a better life. Unfortunately, most of them have never thought about their life after. Most of them never heard the name of Jesus Christ. One of the prime reasons we have for starting our church is to see new people reached with the gospel and properly discipled into healthy, mature and self-replicating followers of Jesus.
