Knox Welcomes Rev Dr Richard Chung
January 1, 2018
In late Fall the Board appointed an ad hoc team to search for a temporary minister for Knox to cover the period January to July 2018. This was necessary to allow our Joint Assessment Team sufficient time to search for a candidate who would lead us into the future.
The Board on the unanimous advice of the ad hoc team are very pleased to announce that the Reverend Dr. Richard Chung will be joining Knox as our temporary minister as of January 1, 2018.
Reverend Richard has 20 years of service in the ministry and most recently served at St. Paul’s United in Kelowna for 12 years. He comes to us with strong and encouraging recommendations from several sources.
Richard brings a firm belief that art and music are the channels that will help the church reach out to our multicultural neighbours as we strive, with Jesus as our compass, to bring the message of love and hope to a wider community. His educational background and experience firmly support this.
Richard and his wife Sue currently reside in Kelowna. In the near term Richard will rent accommodation in Vancouver. We hope to welcome Richard later in December as we begin our plans for the New Year.
We look forward to the faith, experience and support that Richard will bring to our Knox family.
