Jason Yu Chen

International Student Ministry Coordinator, 
North Avenue Presbyterian Church

Jason Chen is the Coordinator of International Student Ministry at NAPC. He was born and raised in Shanghai, China. In 2002 he came to Atlanta with his wife Jasmine for graduate study at Georgia Tech, where he encountered NAPC members ministering to the Chinese students at GT. Jason and Jasmine were amazed by the love and grace that flew from Jesus; they were baptized at NAPC in 2004 and have since called NAPC home. Jason, along with Jasmine, has been ministering to the Chinese students and scholars for over 10 years, through weekly Bible studies, Sunday school, special events celebrations that are tailored to the needs of the Chinese. After years studying in graduate schools and working in the corporate world, in 2011 Jason was called into full time studying at a local seminary. In 2012 Jason formed a new student fellowship at GT, which has multiplied many folds in the past three years.
