San Jose, CA, February 08, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Friendship Agape Church is pleased to announce Kenneth Tong and Irene Tong as leaders of the Youth Program.
“Friendship Agape welcomes Kenneth and Irene to our youth program,” announced Jonathan Lo, Steering Committee Chairperson at Friendship Agape Church. “We are blessed to have this husband and wife team to train and equip our youth as disciples of Jesus Christ. FAC also looks forward to serving the youth in our community as they prepare for college and beyond.”
Spiritual Mentors to Understand the Heart of God
Irene and Kenneth vividly remember when they were youths. After graduating and working for several years, Kenneth (UC Berkeley, BA Molecular & Cellular Biology) and Irene (UC Berkeley, BA Psychology) are uniquely equipped to mentor today’s youths.
Looking back to when she was a youth, Irene shared her passion, “I wish I had known that Christian life was more than do’s and don’ts - on that note, I also wish that I had known the Bible more comprehensively to really understand the heart of God.” Kenneth’s longing, “I wish I had a spiritual mentor whom I could relate more with so to be able to talk more about life and to properly understand what it means to be a follower of God.”
Kenneth and Irene are excited about sharing what they have learned while serving youths for the past five years. As part of the InterHigh ministry, their vision is to equip local Christian youth and raise them to become Biblically-minded Christ-followers, so that as they enter college and beyond, they will be armed with the ability to defend their faith and be able to make a positive impact in the lives of the people around them. As the youth are trained and equipped, the hope is that they will, in turn, become servants and a blessing to their home churches.
