Rev. Ting Yik Leung
Pastor Leung was born in Hong Kong in 1962. After high school graduation, he was led by a classmate to receive Christ in an evangelistic meeting. He then started his Christian journey at Sha Tin Baptist Church near his residence and was baptized as a member in 1980. In 1981, he left Hong Kong and came to US for college education and received a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Education from West Virginia University (Glenville) and the University of Texas (Austin). He majored in special education and had teaching experience in fourth grade as well as a Trainable Mentally Retarded Center. After receiving the Lord’s calling, he entered San Francisco’s Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary in 1985. During the three years of study, he helped establish a Chinese Baptist Church at San Francisco’s Nineteenth Avenue and was ordained there after seminary graduation. Soon, he returned to Hong Kong to serve in his mother church. Since 1988, he led this church to develop from a small church of around 100 people to a total of nearly 5,000 people gathered in six separate campuses. There are more than 40 pastors now and most of them are nurtured through the church’s equipping system, implemented by Pastor Leung. Rev Leung earned his Doctor of Ministry degree at Golden Gate Seminary in 1993. After over 25 years of service in Hong Kong, Pastor Leung and his family decided to move back to South San Jose. After many prayers, thoughts, and discussions with family members, Pastor Leung decided to accept Pastor Chiu’s invitation for new challenges and intent to join Crosspoint to continue his service for the Lord.

The eldest daughter, Zaneta, is a hair stylist and works at Cupertino. The youngest daughter, Kay, studies at BIOLA University in Southern California.

Rev. Timothy Chan
Director of Education Services at Pleasanton Campus
My favorite food is糯米雞 (Sticky rice wrapped in lotus leaf). In order to work off its high calories, I like to do intense exercises such as listening to different pastors’ sermons, “Car Talk” radio show, and reading “Car & Driver” magazine….Oh! I also like swimming, hiking and fixing things at home, too! I am married to Sue. We met in Tennessee, and she is a wonderful wife and a dear partner in life and ministry.
I have been serving at Crosspoint since November 2005. As you can tell, I really enjoy every bit of the ministry experiences at Crosspoint because Crosspoint is a place where people can experience a personal encounter with Jesus, a home where people can discover God’s purposes in their lives, and also a base where people can impact the world with the love of God. It is my great pleasure and privilege to be able to serve God and you at Crosspoint. I love Crosspoint, and I sincerely hope that if you get a chance to check it out, you will love it too!”
Rev. Matthew Chiu
English Lead Pastor
I attended San Jose State University and graduated with a degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis on Health and Fitness Specialist. Shortly after graduation I attended a Christian conference that challenged us to do something worthwhile with our lives. It was at that moment that God called me into ministry as I saw serving God in full-time ministry as the only thing truly worthwhile. I attended Western Seminary and received my Masters of Divinity and joined the pastorate soon after.
I am passionate about seeing peoples’ lives being transformed by the power of the gospel. I particularly love training and discipling people to become influential leaders for the gospel in their spheres of influence (home, work, school…). I enjoy having deep and intentional conversations with people about life, family, and faith.
In my free time I love hanging out with friends, playing basketball, supporting my Golden State Warriors, and catching the latest movies that come out.
Rev. Jacky Cheng
Pleasanton Campus Pastor & East Regional Coordinator
I grew up in Hong Kong and immigrated to Bay Area with family in 1991. God called me at an evangelistic meeting, and then I was baptized and began walking with Jesus at 1993. By the grace of God I had many opportunities to serve at church through different ministries – fellowship, discipleship and church planting. At Crosspoint, I experienced the joy of serving God and the transformation of Holy Spirit. In 2008, God called me to preach His words to the end of the world and gave me confidence through Christ to God-ward. Then I attended Overseas Theological Seminary to equip myself as a full time minister. In 2011, I served at Crosspoint as Small Group Pastor.
My passions are making disciples, building church and bible teaching. My favorite quote is ‘Let my heart be broken with the things that break the heart of God.’
I enjoy cooking food for my wife and two daughters and also traveling with them to explore the world. In my free time, I like biking, running and swimming.
Rev. Justin Pan
West Regional Coordinator
Pastor Alan Chow
Peninsula Campus Pastor
Alan was raised up in a Buddhist family; however it was God’s grace that he attended Christian junior high school where he began reading and studying the Bible. Though Alan acknowledged Christ as a Savior during his high school year in Hong Kong, yet he did not accept Christ into his heart until he emigrated into the United States. Under the guidance of a pastor at San Bruno, Alan came to have a deeper understanding that he is sinner because he had rejected God’s righteousness, plans and purpose in his life.
In 2009, while Alan was preparing for Sunday School for the last chapter of the Gospel of John, he was deeply touched by the love of Jesus to feed His lambs. From then on Alan has a strong sense of growing compulsion to preach and to teach the Word, and to minister to the people of God. After receiving the affirmation from some spiritual elders and pastors and most importantly from his wife, Alan enrolled at Christian Witness Theological Seminary in 2014 to prepare himself as a full time church minister. Alan obtained his Master of Divinity in 2016.
