Words from the Founding Chair
I have once climbed to the pinnacle of my career, but have also plunged into the depths of despair. When I came to Canada, God led me to Him. He changed my life, guiding me from the dark valley of disillusionment to the light of life. As I set foot on this new journey, I tasted so tangibly the sweetness of true, selfless love — brothers and sisters in Christ who were like angels, walking alongside of me in the most challenging time of my life. However, I also experienced at the same time discouragement and brokenness, urging me to reflect deeply on the path I was to take. By God’s grace and His infinite wisdom, He first broke me down, then re-built me up, plucked me out, then re-planted me. (Jer 1:10)
It was out of this time of soul searching that the idea of Solomon Fellowship started to take root and grow. I have been a businessman for over 30 years, and therefore a passion inside of me started to well up. I desired to live out my faith in this world of commerce, and to contribute to this society through my faith-based values. Regrettably, I have come to see a lot of misunderstandings and barriers between the church and marketplace, finding harmony between the two worlds seemed to be as elusive as ever. Therefore, I have come to realize that the goal of Solomon Christian Business Association is to be a bridge between the two realms, a platform where we can foster mutual communication, understanding, ushering the church into the society, and the society into the church. Our vision is to converge people in the marketplace, that we may share with them the wisdom of Christ; through mutual communication, that we may create business opportunities; igniting true love and compassion inside each and everyone of us, that we may contribute to the society, blessings the nations, ultimately, benefitting man and glorifying God.
In the past two years, our ministry has blossomed from “Solomon Fellowship” to “Solomon Breakfast Networking” and now “Solomon Bible Study.” These are three bridges and platforms, and by God’s grace, perhaps we could even develop all of this into a Christian Business Community Center. I sincerely invite all of you to join us and walk with us! May this little mustard seed continue to sprout and blossom, may our light converge like candles, one day becoming a brilliant beacon of light, becoming a true blessing to the church and society!
