Elder John Tang, Chair of Church (email@example.com) （Leave of Absence)
Elder John Tang was born in China, but raised in Taiwan. He had never heard about the gospel until coming to graduate school in NYC. Upon graduation, Elder John became a post-doc at Harvard. His colleague recommended him to Biogen, a biotech founded by her advisor, Walter Gilbert (1980 Nobel Laureate). Therefore, he got a chance to work with many distinguished scientists, which was the start of his biotech career.
In Boston, Elder John went to listen to Pastor Morley Lee’s sermon on Sundays. He was too proud and busy in biotech research with no time to think about the real meaning of life. Pastor Shu Wang shared monthly gospel messages along with an altar call. There were times Elder John was so moved, but nevertheless missed the opportunity. Therefore, salvation had been a difficult journey for him. It is this reason that today he has a burden to spread the gospel.
From early 1990, Elder John has managed the Biotech Development at Schering-Plough/Merck, Bayer, R & D Systems and eBioscience, responsible for R & D and Manufacturing of Protein Pharmaceuticals. It was a period of fast growth and Golden Days of Bio-Pharmaceuticals. His career was also making a great progress. From the worldly point of view, it allowed Elder John to possess material needs. However, he still felt empty and had no peace inside. Praise the Lord, when humbly seeking the Lord, Elder John realized his own selfishness, pride and greed, pursuing a life without meaning. He confessed his sins and accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. Elder John was baptized at CCCNJ on Mother’s Day of 1999.
Praise the Lord, Elder John left the Lord several times, but the Lord has never forsaken him. He molded and changed him because of His grace and faithfulness. Thank the Lord, Elder John now returned to serve at Harvest Church Council after a sabbatical year in 2019. Previously, he served at Church Council for consecutive 8 years (2011-2018), and the last 6 years as an Elder and Chairman. Since 2018, Elder John has also served at Executive Board as well as By-Law and Caring Departments of EFC General Assembly. Thank the Lord for His love and mercy, his two children and five grandchildren were all raised in the Christian church. The families of his two grown children have served at the church. Thank the Lord for leading him to different places to witness Him. Elder John is willing to be a humble servant following the Lord, trusting that he can do all things through God who strengthens him.
