In 1979, Pastor Jian Zhu became a Christian at the Changsha House Church in China. He was called to serve in 1983 while he
was still a college student in China. In 1989 he was ordained as Preacher at the New Mexico Crestview Chinese Baptist Church.
Later in 1991, Pastor Zhu initiated and co-founded the earliest Mainland Chinese church in America, and have served as its
Pastor until today. His main ministry focus has been spiritual formation, church pasturing, as well as Kingdom networking.
Throughout his 40 years of faith journey, Pastor Zhu owes deep debt of his spiritual development to the 2000 years of historical
Christian tradition*. Between 1979 and 1986 Pastor Zhu participated in the forming and services of the first campus ministry in
Hubei Province in China. During that time, he was mentored by the then nationally well-known house church leaders of Lan
Zhiyi, and Gideon Xu. In 1986, Pastor Zhu came to America to study at the University of New Mexico, and had been for a long
while closely trained and mentored by the national house church leader Benjamin Huang. Pastor Zhu had also been deeply
influenced by internationally known Christian leader Stephen Kaung (Richmond, Virginia).
During his long, personal journey of theological exploration, Pastor Zhu has dedicated his focal devotional studies to the core
teachings of those internationally known Chinese Christian leaders, such as Philip Teng, Thomas Wang, Stephen Tong, and
Jonathan Chao. He has also had many years of meditated studies on a variety of iconic teachings of those well-received
Chinese Christian leaders of the current time. Gradually Pastor Zhu has formed his unique and integrated framework of
theological thinking and ministry application, clarified as “Scripture, Spirit, and Saints”, the three major Christian traditions in
one. This framework has helped himself and others in anttempt to discern some of the chronological symptoms of church
cultures among the North American Chinese community churches. In his early ministry apprenticeship, Pastor Zhu was
mentored by the wel-known Chinese church leader of Edward Su.
In 1983, Pastor Zhu received a clear vision of Kingdom networking while he was still in Wuhan college campus. Since then,
Pastor Zhu has been involved in the strategic planning, or co-founding in the initiation, or being invited to the joint service of
the following ministries, such as the Overseas Chinese School of Servanthood**, Life Quarterly Magazine, North America
Mainland Chinese Mission (currently the Chinese Pastors’ Fellowship), the Better Homaland Concert***, Excelsis,
International Chinese Enterpreneur Association****, Forum on Christian Faith of the Chinese Intellectuals**, Lincoln
Christian University China Institute, America China Civic Exchange***, BILD and Antioch Chinese Program, Niagara Falls
Retreat***, School of Chinese House Church Pastors Leadership Training, etc. Pastor Zhu has published several small
booklets, such as Pastoral Ministry (Overseas Campus, 2000), and Devotion Practise (Chinese Pastors Fellowship, 2018). He
has also produced over 100 Episodes of “God’s Fingerprints” and “Knowing God’s Will” as YouTube ministry teaching.
Pastor Zhu’s wife Rebecca Chan, is also an ordained pastor at the local church. Their son Samuel Zhu, after graduated from
Duke University, received his calling to serve as camups minister. He has now joined InterVarsity ministry and founded an
Asian chapter at the North Carolina State University, as its minister.
*This is a very broad framework of description regarding Christian tradition. An attempt is made here to explain the “2000
years of historical Christian tradition” narrative, by using Richard Foster’s combined categories of both “the Contemplative
Tradition” and “the Evangelical Tradition”. (Richard Foster, Streams of Living Water: Celebrating the Great Traditions of
Christian Faith , HarperSanFrancisco, 1998)
