Peninsula Bible Church welcomes new pastor Jeff Louie
We are pleased and excited to announce Jeff Louie will be joining PBC on August 1, 2018, as our Pastor of Equipping.
Jeff is currently an associate professor at Western Seminary in San Jose. He received a ThM and PhD from Dallas Theological Seminary. He has over 25 years of pastoral ministry including 19 years at Sunset Chinese Church in San Francisco. Jeff preached at PBC at the end of last summer. He also taught a class in the fall called “The Church’s Prophetic Voice ” (Session 1 and Session 2), and he recently spoke at our January men’s retreat. Jeff is passionate about finding a way to train lay people in a church setting.
In January 2017, our elders and pastors brainstormed and prayed about how we might grow in our equipping of people for ministry, which has been a long-held value at PBC. Through months of prayer, conversations, and careful discernment, we sensed that God was calling us to bring Jeff on staff as a pastor to lead us in this effort.
Jeff, as Pastor of Equipping, will focus on revamping the adult classes we offer to develop people for ministry, specifically through the PBC Institute of Bible and Culture. His vision for this effort is both to bless the PBC church community and the Christian church in the Bay Area at large. We are excited to see what God does in this work.
Between now and August 1, Jeff will be meeting to plan and prepare a new equipping program that will begin in fall of this year. Please pray for Jeff as he puts together this vision. Feel free to contact any of the elders with any questions.
