Open Pastor

 We are in the process of calling a pastor.  Pastor Paul Terhune recently retired after decades of faithful service.


  The Pastor is the spiritual leader of Hope Lutheran Church. He frequently conducts weekly chapel services, is a resource to teachers and students, and works closely with the principal to ensure that the community of Hope is sharing the Gospel.

Chinese Ministry


I am originally from China.  I have a three-year diploma in Business English, and I am studying for a Master of Arts in Theology through Concordia University, Irvine.  Right now, I am assigned to do my vicarage (internship for church ministry) at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Hacienda Heights, and Hope Lutheran Church, Glendora.  I received American Elementary Education through Shenzhen Concordia International School before I came to the U.S.  I also worked with American missionaries in China to do evangelizing works. I am planning to work with our Principal to enrich the School-Age-Daycare into an after-school program where students can choose various kinds of interesting subjects and activities, such as Bible class, Chinese language, tutoring, sports, art and music. This is a project we are envisioning to greatly benefit families in our community. 


Psalm 23: 3
