Pastor for Neighborhood Outreach, Downtown
Email | 612-338-7653 x451
Ming-Jinn Tong was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Taiwanese parents in 1979. At the age of 5, the Lord opened Ming-Jinn's eyes to his need for a Savior—a Savior that he loves greatly, Jesus Christ. At the age of 11, Ming-Jinn heard the Lord's calling to full-time ministry.
After growing up in Southern California, that calling brought Ming-Jinn to complete his BA in International Ministries and Applied Linguistics at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. Before being called by the elder board to serve on the staff, Ming-Jinn had been a lay member of Bethlehem for four years while working at Desiring God. During that time, the Lord gave Ming-Jinn a deep desire to see the body of Bethlehem come together and love one another.
Ming-Jinn is married to Catherine and has three kids, Christian, Juliana, & Pearl. Catherine works part time as an art teacher at Hope Academy.
