After miraculously escaping a tragic road traffic accident in 2008, he strongly sensed the LORD had saved him for a purpose beyond Medicine. In 2009 he hung up his stethoscope to fully commit himself to the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and raising emerging leaders worldwide—he hasn’t turned back since. For four years (2012-2016) he had the privilege of pastoring the Montreal Chinese Alliance Grace Church.
