  5. 5. FOLLOW IN HIS STEPS5 WELCOME! Messages from the Chairpersons “It is truly my honor to be able to serve you all this year! As I am serving in this ministry, I’m learning to be humble and to work as a family in Christ. I believe that God brought you to this conference for His reason! Be ready to receive what He wants you to experience through the conference. I pray that this conference will not a routine for you, but a life changing experience between you and God! Let’s enjoy these 4 days together!” In His Love, Jimmy Luk 2017 Excutive Committee Chairperson “Welcome to West Coast Chinese Christian Conference 2017! I thank God for bringing you all here safetly from various parts of this vast country and also from our neighboring country. We, the Planning Committee members, are so excited to welcome you. Even before you arrived, we have been praying for you, that the Holy Spirit will have a special blessing prepared for you and that He will open your mind to understand what God is trying to tell you. 2017 brought a series of devastating natural disasters, from powerful hurricanes to raging wildfires. While we are amazed by a total solar eclipse, the worst mass shooting on the other hand has brought us to tears. Our confusing world desperately needs Jesus to come and make it new. t’s our prayer that through this weekend you will be equipped to exercise care in passing down what you have learned from our LORD Jesus, the three key elements of authentic discipleship: self-denial, carrying one’s cross, and following in the footsteps of the Master. May the good Lord bless this conference and make it fruitful. Through which, our Christian faith becomes a “living faith”. “ Maisie Chan 2017 Planning Committee Chairperson WCCCC Handbook 2017-HC-v6.indd 5 12/27/17 1:45 PM

  8. 8. FOLLOW IN HIS STEPS8 ABOUT WCCCC OUR HISTORY WCCCC began in 1969 when a group of foreign-born Chinese Christian students gathered for fellowship over the Christmas break. This winter retreat continued up through 1971. In 1972, the winter retreat planning committee placed their efforts in the planning of the North American Congress of Chinese Evangelicals (NACOCE). After the NACOCE meeting, this winter retreat began its transformation into a full-fledged “Winter Conference”. From this beginning, WCCCC has grown into a regional conference ministering to students and young adults, both foreign and American born, from over 100 different groups and churches. OUR VISION WCCCC’s vision is to co-work with West Coast Chinese churches to bring about a grass roots revival. OUR MISSION The primary mission of WCCCC is to plan, organize, and deliver an annual conference for West Coast Chinese Christians that will: • Stimulate conferees to grow in their walk with God; • Equip conferees with the knowledge and skills to fulfill their spiritual calling; • Enrich conferees with a knowledge and understanding of current and past events and movements relevant to Chinese Christians; • Promote conferees’ awareness of their social responsibilities. West Coast Chinese Christian Conference is an evangelical fellowship of Chinese Christians committed to challenging and equipping God’s people to serve on campuses or in the workplace, at the local church or on the mission field. Through a network of resources, training and encouragement, WCCCC aims to serve the West Coast Chinese Christian community. WCCCC Handbook 2017-HC-v6.indd 8 12/27/17 1:45 PM
  9. 9. FOLLOW IN HIS STEPS9 OUR DISTINCTIVENESS A Community Within Diversity Conferees come from throughout the West Coast representing diverse backgrounds. Through group Bible studies, cabin sharing and other activities, fellowship is fostered to promote a genuine community. A Wealth of Perspectives Conferees are challenged and stimulated through interaction with our numerous speakers on a broad range of topics regarding spiritual growth, Christian service and contemporary issues. An Opportunity for Training Conferees are offered practical workshops to build leadership and evangelism skills, as well as in-conference opportunities to lead Bible study and to practice spiritual discipline. Committee members develop important strategic and tactical skills that provide a valuable foundation for future ministries. OUR BELIEFS Although we come from various church denominations, the leadership of West Coast Chinese Christian Conference holds to the following statements of faith: • We believe that the Bible is uniquely inspired by God, and in its trustworthiness and authority. • We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ and in His true humanity when He lived among us. • We acknowledge the necessity of Jesus’ substitutionary death on the cross for the redemption of the world. • We hold that salvation is by faith and through God’s grace alone. • We believe in the historic fact of the resurrection. • We acknowledge the presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the work of regeneration. • We fully expect the personal return of Jesus Christ in the future.

  11. 11. FOLLOW IN HIS STEPS11 EVENING SPEAKER Rev. Mitchell Herring Rev. Mitchell Herring remembers that as a small child, his father would take him and his younger brother to visit their grandparents every Sunday morning. They would pass a church with a huge sign reading “Christ died for our sins.” Even then he often wondered what that meant. Later, while a student at Rutgers University, he read the Gospels for himself and was deeply moved by the purity and holiness of Christ and by His promise, “…and behold, I will be with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Believing the Bible’s declaration that it was his sin that separated him from the holy and eternal God, and that it was Christ who paid the price for his sin by His death on the cross, he came to Christ as his Savior and Lord in 1974. Pastor Herring came to know many Chinese friends at Rutgers and took his first Chinese course as an elective in fall of 1972. His great interest led him to continue in Chinese studies. After coming to Christ, he was introduced to and became involved with the Chinese Student Bible Study Group on the Rutgers Campus. Upon the conviction of the Lord’s call into full-time ministry, in 1982 he entered China Evangelical Seminary in Taipei, Taiwan as the only American student in a school of over 100 Chinese students.

After overcoming the odds to escape an abusive home, he fought through homelessness and loneli- ness to find the American dream and his French bride, Maite. Right in San Francisco’s most impoverished district, the Tenderloin, Roger witnessed a traumatic event happen to a young boy, which prompted him and his wife to pass out 50 sandwiches the very next day. This simple act to intervene turned into what is now City Impact’s Rescue Mission, K-8 school with roughly 100 students, a food bank, health and wellness center, adopt a building initiative, a thrift store and a school of ministry. Roger has led many in discovering the power of prayer, fasting, and serving hands-on in a community starved for hope.

  20. 20. FOLLOW IN HIS STEPS20 Jesus’ Intentions (Matthew 9:9-13) Good morning! Let’s thank God that we can wake up early and draw close to Him by reading His Word. The theme of this conference is “Follow in His Steps”. We will read Matthew 9:9-13 (ESV) and reflect on our current mindset of following Jesus. Please read the passage closely and slowly three times: Jesus Calls Matthew 9 As Jesus passed on from there, he saw a man called Matthew sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him, “Follow me.” And he rose and followed him. 10 And as Jesus reclined at table in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and were reclining with Jesus and his disciples. 11 And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” 12 But when he heard it, he said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. 13 Go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.” DAY 2 morning devotion 1 There was an obvious distinction between the Pharisees and those regarded as social outcasts (e.g. tax collectors and sin- ners). To be in one group or another basically sets the stage as to how society sees that person. Jesus’ intention was to heal the sick and the broken; He addressed each kind of sick and broken as He saw fit. He was also here to glorify God by expressing His love to all people. Despite their social differ- ences, the Pharisees and the social outcasts were all one and the same in Jesus’ eyes: sick and broken. WCCCC Handbook 2017-HC-v6.indd 20 12/27/17 1:45 PM
  21. 21. FOLLOW IN HIS STEPS21 Reflection and Prayer 1. It is an inevitable truth that we are all broken and lost in one form or another. Do you recognize it within yourself? 2. If society’s standards, or even your own standards, do not matter to Jesus, what is stopping you from accepting your brokenness and coming before Him? 3. Is it important to be a highly regarded person in the eyes of others so that you can be accepted? How can you live a life that lines up with the Word of God, not the social and cultural norm of the world? PRAYER Good morning Lord! I am so thankful that You have drawn me close to You and have called me to do Your will on earth. I am grateful for Your plan of salvation through Jesus, and the power You bestowed upon me from Your Holy Spirit. Please give to me a clear mind, a pure heart, and a touch of Your wisdom to do what is good and right in Your eyes today. May my life glorify You and be pleasing in Your sight. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen. WCCCC Handbook 2017-HC-v6.indd 21 12/27/17 1:45 PM

  24. 24. FOLLOW IN HIS STEPS24 耶穌的意向(馬太福音9:9-13) 早上好!讓我們來感謝上帝,使我們一早醒來,透過閱讀祂的話語來親近祂。 今年大會的主題是“跟隨祂的腳蹤行”。我們將會讀馬太福音9章9-13節,反思我 們目前跟隨主耶穌的心態。請仔細和慢慢地誦讀經文三遍: 馬太被召 9耶穌從那裡往前走,看見一個人,名叫馬太,坐在稅關上,就對他說:「你跟從我 來!」他就起來跟從了耶穌。10耶穌在屋裡坐席的時候,有好些稅吏和罪人來,與 耶穌和他的門徒一同坐席。11法利賽人看見,就對耶穌的門徒說:「你們的先生 為什麼和稅吏並罪人一同吃飯呢?」12耶穌聽見就說:「康健的人用不著醫生,有 病的人才用得著。13經上說:『我喜愛憐恤,不喜愛祭祀』,這句話的意思你們且 去揣摩;我來本不是召義人,乃是召罪人。」 DAY 2 morning devotion 1 在社會上,法利賽人和那些認為是被社會排斥的人(例如:稅吏和 罪人)之間存在着明顯的區別。人們怎樣看待一個人,就基於他所屬的群 體。耶穌定意要醫治有病及生命破碎的人;祂針對着不同人的需要去 根治他們的病和破碎。祂也透過向所有的人表達祂的愛來榮耀神。儘管人 們在社會上的地位懸殊,但法利賽人和被社會排斥的人在耶穌眼中 都是一樣的:有病和破碎。 WCCCC Handbook 2017-HC-v6.indd 24 12/27/17 1:45 PM
  25. 25. FOLLOW IN HIS STEPS25 默想和禱告 1. 事實上,在某程度來說,我們都是破碎和迷失的。你 有意識到嗎? 2. 無論是社會的標準,甚至是你自己的標準,對耶穌來 說都沒有關係。那麼,是甚麼阻礙你接受你自己的「 破碎」及去到祂面前呢? 3. 對你來說,在別人眼中成為高度被重視的人而感到 被人接納,是否重要呢?你怎樣去過一個與神話語相 符的生命,而不是過一個在社會和文化規範下的生 命? 禱告: 早安,天父爸爸!感謝袮用袮的話語把我拉近到袮面前, 並呼召我遵行袮的旨意。我感謝袮藉著耶穌給我的拯 救,以及袮從聖靈賜給我的能力。請給我一個清醒的頭 腦,一顆純潔的心,以及從袮而來的智慧,今天去做袮 眼中看為好的、美善的事。願我的生命榮耀袮,在袮眼前 蒙悅納。 奉主名求。阿們。 NOTES WCCCC Handbook 2017-HC-v6.indd 25 12/27/17 1:45 PM

FOLLOW IN HIS STEPS28 Matthew 16:13-28 “Take up your cross and follow Me” Learning Objective Conferees will understand that following Christ requires setting our minds, time, and priority completely to God and towards His redemp- tive plan of the Gospel. If we follow Jesus, we must be prepared to experience suffering and persecution just like Jesus did. Discussion Questions 1. Who revealed the identity of Jesus to Peter? Why would he reveal this to Peter? 2. What is the Rock the Church built upon? Why does that make the power of death not able to overpower the church? 3. Why doesn’t Peter want Jesus to go to His death? 4. According to Jesus, what is the basic requirement to be His diciple? 5. Between the cross and gaining the whole world, which one does the disciples prefer? Application Question 1. What crosses are you carrying today?

  40. 40. FOLLOW IN HIS STEPS40 Luke 9:57-62 The Requirements of Following Jesus Good morning! Please take three minutes to reflect on what you have gone through yesterday. Did you allow God to begin working in you in order to do what is pleasing in His sight? This morning’s scripture reading is from Luke 9:57-62 (ESV). Please read the following pas- sage closely and slowly three times: The Cost of Discipleship 57 As they were going along the road, someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.” 58 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no- where to lay his head.” 59 To another he said, “Follow me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” 60 And Jesus said to him, “Leave the dead to bury their own dead. But as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” 61 Yet another said, “I will follow you, Lord, but let me first say farewell to those at my home.” 62 Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.” DAY 3 morning devotion 2 WCCCC Handbook 2017-HC-v6.indd 40 12/27/17 1:45 PM
  41. 41. FOLLOW IN HIS STEPS41 Reflection and Prayers This passage describes three different conversations with Jesus: 1. One person wants to follow Jesus, but Jesus replies by saying “... the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” (v57-58) 2. Jesus invites a person to follow Him, but the man needs to bury his father first. (v59-60) 3. One person offers himself to Jesus, but has other priorities he has to take care of first. (v61-62) Jesus gave up His honor and prestige in heaven to walk among His people, only to come to Earth despised and rejected. He humbled Himself while He was on Earth, but ended up being nailed onto the cross. If we follow Jesus, we will be despised and rejected as well. How are you preparing yourself to follow in His steps knowing full well that you will be rejected by the world? Sometimes when Jesus calls us, we give ourselves time to tie up any loose ends or to make sure the rest of our life is stable before we answer His call. Answering Jesus’ call is never about being on our time, but on His time. Write down the priorities you are placing above God’s calling. Prayer: Lord Jesus, Forgive me when I’ve put my own priorities in front of You. Many times I’ve treated You more like a servant or an equal rather than my Sovereign King and Lord. Forgive me and have mercy on me. Please help me to answer without any excuse when You call. Although I constantly waver on how to live a God-centered life, I ask for Your help and strength to be a disciple You can count on. In Your powerful Name I pray, Amen.

  42. 42. FOLLOW IN HIS STEPS42 跟隨耶穌的代價(路加福音9:57-62) 早上好!請花三分鐘時間反思昨天的經歷。你有沒有讓神開始在你裡頭作工,以 致你能行出祂所喜悅的事呢?今天早上的經文是選自路加福音9章57-62節。請 仔細閱讀以下經文,並慢慢讀三次: 跟從主的代價 57他們走路的時候,有一人對耶穌說:「你無論往哪裡去,我要跟從你。」58耶穌 說:「狐狸有洞,天空的飛鳥有窩,只是人子沒有枕頭的地方。」59又對一個人說: 「跟從我來!」那人說:「主,容我先回去埋葬我的父親。」60耶穌說:「任憑死人埋 葬他們的死人,你只管去傳揚神國的道。」61又有一人說:「主,我要跟從你,但容 我先去辭別我家裡的人。」62耶穌說:「手扶著犁向後看的,不配進神的國。」 DAY 3 morning devotion 2 WCCCC Handbook 2017-HC-v6.indd 42 12/27/17 1:45 PM
  43. 43. FOLLOW IN HIS STEPS43 NOTES 默想和禱告 以上經文描述了三段與耶穌不同的對話: 1. 一個人想跟隨耶穌,但耶穌回答說:“...人子沒有 枕頭的地方。”(v57-58) 2. 耶穌邀請一個人跟隨他,但是那人需要先埋葬他 的父親。(v59-60) 3. 一個人把自己獻給耶穌,但他還有其他的事項要 優先處理。(v61-62) 耶穌放棄了他在天上的榮耀和尊貴,走到祂的子民 中間,只是來到地上被藐視和被拒絕。祂謙卑自己來 到地上,但最後竟被釘在十字架上。如果我們要跟隨 耶穌,我們也會同樣地被藐視和被拒絕。當你很清楚 知道要跟隨主的腳蹤時,你會被世界所拒絕,你要怎 樣準備好自己呢? 有時,當耶穌呼召我們,我們常常給自己時間先完成 自己既定的目標,或在回應祂的呼召之前確保我們 的餘生已夠安穩。回應主耶穌的呼召絕不是要在我 們認為合適的時間,而是要在主呼召我們的時間。寫 下現在你看為比神的呼召更優先的事。 禱告: 主耶穌,當我把自己的事看為比袮的呼召更優先,請 袮原諒我。很多時候,我把袮當作一個僕人,或一個 與我平起平坐的人,而不是我的主、我的王。懇求袮 原諒我,憐憫我。當袮呼召我的時候,求袮幫助我,不 要以藉口來推搪我對袮的回應。雖然我一直不夠堅 持去過一個以神為中心的生活,但求袮幫助我,並賜 我力量成為一個袮可以託付的門徒。奉主耶穌袮大 有能力的名字而求。阿們。 WCCCC Handbook 2017-HC-v6.indd 43 12/27/17 1:45 PM

  46. 46. FOLLOW IN HIS STEPS46 Learning Objective: Conferees will understand that true followers of Jesus requires a complete surrendering of their heart, soul, mind, and strength. The commitment to follow Jesus should be a highest priority, even above oneself. Discussion Questions: 1. Why did Jesus say that one cannot be his disciple unless he “hates his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, and even his own life”? 2. What did Jesus mean when He said that someone must “carry his own cross and come after Jesus”? 3. Why does Jesus emphasize that someone has to give up all his possessions in order to become a disciple of Jesus? 4. Why are there “Christians” who give up midway? Why are they not able to finish building their tower? Why were they unable to win the war? 5. What is the “saltiness” of a Christian? What happens when a Christian loses this “saltiness”? 6. Which aspects in your life have you not fully given to Jesus? Application Questions: 1. What drives you to become and continue to be a Christian? What can you do to love the Lord with all your heart, life, and strength? 2. What should you do to maintain your commitment in Jesus as the highest priority in your life? 3. Do you think you have “saltiness” in yourself? What can cause you to lose your “saltiness”? What can you do to increase/regain your “saltiness”?

We will meditate on one verse of scripture today from Luke 9:23 (ESV). 23 And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. Those who are use to reading this verse tend to overlook the magnitude of its meaning and let it fall into a Christian jargon. Don’t let your ingrained experience take away the impact and value of this verse. Let us reflect on the cost of following Jesus with a fresh mind.

How has your mindset changed in the past three days about your readiness in taking up your cross daily? 4. Write down at least one thing that you would do to follow Jesus after leaving the conference. Prayer: Dear God, Thank You for sending Your Son to earth in the form of a child. I am humbled by the sinless life in which Jesus led in human form; overcoming all temptations and sacrificing His life for my sins. Please continue to change and mold me so that I can have a heart like Jesus. Your Word tells me that, “For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it. What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self?” (Luke 9:24-25). Thank You for giving me strength so that I could focus on Your precious and matchless reward. Lord, please help me focus more on You and Your presence in my life and less on me. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen. NOTES WCCCC Handbook 2017-HC-v6.indd 57 12/27/17 1:45 PM

Therefore, all Christians must strive towards righteousness even if it causes them to suffer. Our suffering for His sake is minimal compared to the love that Christ showed us by bearing our sin on the cross. Discussion Questions: 1. How should Christians see themselves in this world? What should they do in response to this view? 2. How should Christians treat governmental authority in the world? Why should they do so? 3. How should Christians, who are servants, treat their master(s)? Why should they do so? 4. According to this passage, why is a person called to be a Christian? How do we follow in Christ’s steps? 5. What was Jesus’ response when He faced unjust opposition? Why would He do so? What did Jesus do that led to this suffering? 6. What do you need to do in order to follow the steps of Jesus?
