Hello & welcome to my website!
I am Alex S. Leung—English Pastor of Bay Area Chinese Bible Church in Alameda, CA; and a graduate of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (M.Div Christian Ministry, 2011) & Ryerson University (B.A. Geographic Analysis, 2006).
Originally from Toronto (Canada), I now live in the San Francisco Bay Area with the love of my life, Vivian, and our 2 daughters, MJ & AJ.
In case you haven’t heard: I am passionate about the gospel, the local church, 49ers football, coffee, and country music!
I confess that I am a Reformed evangelical with a desperate dependence on the Holy Spirit. I am passionately committed to God’s calling on my life to pastor in the local church.
Gospel. Community. Mission.
I desire the local church to be a community that lives out the mission of God—by declaring and demonstrating the gospel of Jesus Christ.
My vision for ministry: to see disciples of Jesus Christ become devoted members of the local church, who are being shaped by the cross and have hearts burning for the Word of Christ. In other words: connecting the gospel to people, people to community, and community to mission.
Thanks for reading! More about me here.
Grace to you,
Alex S. Leung
What is six steps?
"Six steps" is more than a name, it’s a value. It’s a way of life. Six steps should be the heartbeat of a generation passionate for God's fame, and the unending memory of His name.
Ultimately, six steps is a vision: it’s about “worship with poles.”
Worship with poles? What do poles have to do with worship?
For the answer we must return to earlier times. The historical roots is found in 2 Samuel 6:13-15.
In Old Testament days, the Ark of the Lord was the most precious possession of the people of God. The Ark was the embodiment of His very presence… His glory among His people. It’s a long, sad story, but the Ark was captured by the enemies of God (the dreaded Philistines). Upon discovering that God’s glory is not something to be taken lightly, the Philistines returned the Ark to the Israelites. In time, came to rest at a guy named Abinadab’s house.
Finally David sought to return the Ark to its rightful place, Jerusalem. The journey was a perilous one because the people of God had forgotten about the ways of God, attempting to transport the Ark on a wooden cart. After disastrous consequences, the Ark was again put on poles, like God had instructed in the first place. Once the Ark was again carried properly, the journey to Jerusalem resumed safely.
David and his men were so grateful, so happy that they were alive in the presence of such glory, they took six steps, built an altar and offered a sacrifice of praise to God. They were humbled and amazed in the presence of a Holy God.
Thus: six steps, worship.
