MISSION & VISION

MISSION & VISION


Jesus replied, “ ‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
— Matthew 22:37-39

bernard jin

Bernard, a Chinese-Canadian, is a graduate of the University of British Columbia where he obtained his doctorate in Dental Medicine as well as two undergraduate degrees – in Science and Education.  He currently owns/operates a dental practice in Coquitlam and serves as a co-chairman and instructor/mentor at a dental implant/surgical training institute.  He is known for making anxious patients feel more at ease by cracking jokes and making them laugh – the benefits of having a captive audience! :)  He and his wife, Karen, are the parents of two wonderful children – Nathan and Bethany.  

Bernard is passionate about strong families and marriages, mentoring/relationships, healing journeys (spirit/mind/body), and is constantly in awe of God’s goodness and faithfulness – especially amidst difficult seasons. He enjoys spending quality time with his family, photography, and cruising on his motorcycle.  He is a commissioned officer in the Canadian Armed Forces (Naval) and hopes to one day pick up ballroom dancing with Karen again (which is how they first met!).

He has been serving, supporting and leading the church’s music/worship ministry for the past several years and desperately wants to see the songs and expressions of the Church blossom and break forth in Vancouver.  Dale is also leading the Surrey/Langley Home Group with Janet. He feels called to tap into and bridge the connectedness and purpose of all things because our God is a God of purpose and intelligent design. Dale completed a Bachelor’s of Science degree at SFU’s Molecular Biology and Biochemistry program and has enrolled in a Masters of Divinity program at Carey Theological College. He currently works for Fraser Health as a Client Partner in its Leadership & Organization Development department.
