FIRST JOB
My first job was picking up weeds for one cent a piece in my Grandma’s backyard. To this day, I have a disdain for the sight of weeds.

INSPIRATION
As a teenager, I had a lot of questions with regards to how Christianity could be true. I grew up in a Chinese American church in Los Angeles that had caring adults who were patient with my question-asking and never judged me for my questions. They stuck with me through my doubting teenage years and are with me to this day as an adult.

BIGGEST CHALLENGE
We all see the world with a unique lens. Sometimes in my pride, I believe that everyone sees the world the way I do. Or that my lens is the correct lens to view the world. God has been working in me to see the world through the lens of others and celebrate their uniqueness.

ROLE AT HULEN STREET
My job is to encourage our entire church, to walk every teenager through the teenage years and cultivate a real faith that lasts in adulthood. I also help develop social ministry and community on our digital platforms throughout the week.

Matt has served with Hulen Street Church since 2014.
