Growing up in the urban setting of Baltimore, MD, Pastor Stephen Ro has a special love for the ministry in the city that brought him to New York in 1991. He gave his life to Jesus at the age of 13 and committed himself to God to be a pastor one day. After confirming a call to ministry, he entered Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia where he received an M. Div in 1991. His passion is to live and preach the gospel of grace and wants to extend God's Kingdom by church plant movement. He planted Living Faith Community Church in Queens, NY through Redeemer Church Planting Center in 2000. As a church planter, he has a desire to see the church planting movement go forward to transform the entire city of New York. Pastor Stephen Ro is an ordained minister of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) and a Board Member of Pastoral and Laity Ministries (PaLM), and US NewsnJoy. He participates in the PCA church planters assessment as an assessor and is a certified Coachnet coach for pastors and church planters. He loves to play tennis and softball while thinking about church planting. Pastor Stephen Ro and his wife Candice have three sons, Christian, Calvin, and Prosper.
He attended New York University and worked in the Asian American non-profit sector for five years before being called to full-time youth ministry. While attending Redeemer Presbyterian, Peter served on the Board of Directors for Hope for New York, a mercy and justice ministry. He has also served as an advisor to the Teen Eastern Chinese Bible Conference; Jesus Generation, whose mission is to see a generation sold out for Jesus; volunteer staff at NYU Intervarsity Asian American Christian Fellowship; youth pastoral committee for The Call NYC and also one of the first forming committees for the Coalition of Urban Youth Workers.
In 2005 he served as a liaison to the Billy Graham Crusades of Greater New York, working with community churches to reach local youth. He regularly preaches at churches, youth conferences and to himself in front of a mirror. Peter Ong is happily married to Jamie Ong on August 13th, 2005 on the "hottest day of the century." They love hiking, cooking and eating. They are now living out in Long Island with their son, Nicolas who came into their lives a bit preemie in 2008.
In addition to working in ministry, Peter has published reviews on graphic novels, and comics. His loves: Jesus, Youth (especially chubby ones), being married, Hymns, Dim Sum, mac's, ice cream, sushi, music, books and of course Halo 2. His dislikes: vegetarian hot dogs, cheese, soy milk (he gets bloated), romantic comedies (that seems redundant to me), and sweaty noses. He writes on his blog at www.peterong.wordpress.com.

Moses was born into a pastor's family. After numerous years of rebellion, particularly in his late teenage years and early college years, the saving grace of the Lord opened his eyes to embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ. Shortly after, he has committed his life to ministry. He desires to see unbelievers come to faith in the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and for those in the faith to grow in Him. He met his wife Jenny in college, at Stony Brook University's campus ministry called Korean Christian Fellowship. They got married in summer of 2011. Jenny received her Master's in Education in 2011 and is en route to becoming an Earth Science teacher. Moses is a student at Westminster Theological Seminary, and is expected to receive his Master's in Divinity at the end of 2013. He has been serving in the Youth Ministry of Manna Presbyterian Church from Januaury 2009 to December 2011. He looks forward to his calling as a Youth Director of Living Faith Community Church beginning Januaury of 2012.
