Pastor Howard Chang

Rev. Howard Chang has served as a pastor at Davis Chinese Christian Church since 2014. He returned to the Davis area, where he met his wife at a campus fellowship, after graduating in the early 1990’s.

Looking back, he didn’t know what to do with his life as an undergraduate at U.C. Davis. As a studious student, he continued working toward his degree in engineering. At the same time, he experienced God working through his church and campus fellowship to heal years of pain and hurt. Among other things, he was bullied and teased from the stigma of living with a chronic autoimmune skin condition, psoriasis, that covered his skin from head to toe from childhood. Coming to college he was a shy teenager with low confidence and high social anxiety.

That inner healing led to the desire to be an agent of healing for others. A key verse for him in his emotional and spiritual journey came from 2 Corinthians 1:3-4: Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. With this calling he set out to become a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Pastor Howard completed his Master of Divinity from Western Seminary, San Jose and his Doctor of Ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena. He has served as a pastor in Chinese churches for twenty years in the Bay Area and Southern California. His ministry interests are in teaching, mentoring, counseling, and leading teams.

He and his wife, Lori, have been married for almost twenty-five years and have three older children—one in her early twenties and two teenagers. In his spare time, he enjoys advocating for the patient voice, volunteering for the National Psoriasis Foundation, health blogging, and watching sports.
