Elder Daniel Luan
Senior Pastor

Elder Daniel Luan is the Senior Pastor of Rutgers Community Christian Church. He was brought up in a Christian home and consecrated his life to the Lord at age 15. Early in his college years, however, his faith was severely challenged, yet by carefully studying Scripture he was convinced that the Gospels’ claim about Jesus is true. Later, he served as the president of the Christian Fellowship of National Taiwan University. While attending graduate school in Taipei, he was given opportunities to preach regularly in a local church. He later arrived in the US to pursue doctoral studies in Operations Research at Yale University and met his wife Yowmei there. They came to RCCC in 1981 and served at various ministries. Daniel was ordained as an elder in 1991. After working for Bell Labs and AT&T Labs for twenty-five years he took early retirement and served full-time in the church, appointed as Co-moderator in 2008. His ministry responsibility also involved leading the Caring and the Worship departments. During this period, he studied part-time at Westminster Theological Seminary, earning an MAR in 2014, and has since completed all course requirements toward a ThM in the Old Testament. In 2019, he answered the call to serve as Senior Pastor at RCCC.

Pastor Daniel and Yowmei have three children: Luke and daughter-in-law Shannon; Grace and son-in-law Mark with two granddaughters; and Gloria. He enjoys reading, travelling, classical music, and spending time with family.

Rev. Wilson Chang

Pastor Wilson is pastor of the English ministry. He grew up in Hong Kong and attended college in Taiwan. After completing his B.A. in Anthropology, he continued his studies at Columbia University in New York City, where he completed an M.A. and an Ed.M. Preparing to become a research fellow in an academic institute, Pastor Wilson was surprised to find God had a different plan for him. He worked as a Junior High School teacher in the NYC education system for close to a decade where God shaped him in preparation for his calling into full time ministry. He entered the M.Div. program at Taiwan’s China Evangelical Seminary in 1997 and completed a D.Min. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Boston in 2007.

He served for seven years as the Membership Pastor at RCCC before pastoring the English Congregation from 2007 to the present. He and his wife, Judy, have three children and one dog. He enjoys teaching, preaching, reading, hiking, art, exotic foods, and a fine cup of coffee.

He also practiced counseling at Beverly Hospital in Beverly, MA through the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education (ACPE). In 2006, James began serving as Assistant Director of University Ministries at Citylife Presbyterian Church in Boston, before transitioning to Pastoral Fellow in 2010.
