Giving to Tyndale

Sam Chan [MDiv 1982] began the Richmond Hill Christian Community Church plant just over 30 years ago. Its 4,000 strong congregation believed it was time for a new vision. As senior pastor, Sam is excited about this new vision that will see the church moving towards global ministry. He states that “a lot of people are interested in missions. Instead of asking them just to serve in the church we are excited to move out into the local and global community.”

This move towards global ministry also involves Sam’s alma mater. “One of the global things that I like to do is to ask my people to support Tyndale… you are basically affecting the international scene.” He believes that Tyndale is an important part of a global outreach because of the training it provides. Sam believes strongly in training leaders. “In the coming times, leadership is extremely important… [Tyndale] is a university that trains godly leaders.”
