ABOUT PASTOR ROY YEH (關於葉耿齊牧師):

Roy Yeh grew up in Taiwan. Having been admitted to the prestigious International Business Department of National Taiwan University, he still felt no satisfaction.  He wanted to know the true meaning of life, but he could not find the answer through books and philosophy. During his senior year, Roy was invited to a church Bible study group. As a skeptic, he asked many questions to challenge the teaching, but the truth of the Bible slowly transformed his heart to accept and desire it. After experiencing the love of God powerfully he submitted himself to God, he was baptized, and he dedicated his life for God’s purposes in 1999.

In 2003, after much prayer, Roy and his wife, Li Meiying, immigrated to the U.S. and settled in the unfamiliar Houston, Texas. One year later, the two moved to Fort Worth for Roy to attend Southwestern Theological Seminary. Despite having no income, God provided for Roy to complete his M. Div. degree. Through his seminary experience, Pastor Roy’s appreciation for the power and beauty of God’s Word grew, and since 2009, he’s been passionately helping others to experience God and to mature in their faith.

Pastor Yeh and his wife have two sons: Isaiah and Jeremiah, whom they wish will serve God. Pastor Yeh loves walking, meditation, baseball, coffee, reading, and kissing his sons. He believes that ministering and living life everyday is God’s grace.

葉耿齊牧師在台北長大。學業一路順利的他,大學考入台灣大學的國際企業學系,但他的心靈裡總是有一股不滿足感,他問自己:”人生的意義在那裡?難道就為了賺錢,求一個安穩和順遂嗎?” 他考察哲學和歷史,閱讀书籍,希望能找出一個答案,但一再一再,他感到失望、迷惑。

大學四年級時,同學邀請他到教會。當時他對基督信仰相當不屑,在小組查經時常常故作禮貌狀地問一些刁難的問題。但沒想到聖經裡耶穌簡單而深遂的話語漸漸溶化了他,他開始期待小組的團契和神話語的教導,他開始試著自己跟神禱告。深層的平安和深遂的意義感臨到了他,生活中的一再經歷讓他沒法否認這宇宙中有一位愛他的天父; 他滿是興奮地接受了洗禮,並決定一生要奉獻給神使用,那一天是1999年的12月19日。

葉牧師在團契中認識了李美瑩姐妹,也就是現在的師母。在沒有任何親友、資源、後盾的情況下,憑著單單的禱告,他們倆人移民到人生地不熟的德州休士頓,那一天是2003年的12月26日。一年后,葉牧師進入德州福和市的西南浸信會神學院就讀。靠着信心,在沒有任何收入的期間,神透過各樣的資源和幫助,使他能夠完成道學碩士的學業。他的眼界在神學院中被開啟,看到了神的話語的能力與精妙,研讀和教導自此就一直是他的熱情所在。葉牧師畢業後,於2009年参于事奉,他期望帶領人来經歷神,在得勝時謙卑,在受苦時有盼望,讓這個教會彰顯出愛神、愛人的生命見證。

葉牧師、師母育有二子Isaiah和Jeremiah。他們期望上帝將來使用他們宣揚上帝,祝福人們。葉牧師喜愛散步、默想、棒球、咖啡、閱讀及親吻兒子。服事是恩典,活著的每一天也是恩典。
