Steven J. Chin is the Senior Pastor at the Boston Chinese Evangelical Church, the largest Asian church in New England with over 1200 adults meeting in six worship services using English, Cantonese, and Mandarin.
He was born in Boston and grew up in Cambridge where his father operated a laundry. Steven did not grow up with any Christian influence, but, in early adolescence, he became a Christian in a process that began with some neighbors inviting him to attend a Baptist church.
Steven went on to college at New York University where he earned a BE in Industrial Engineering. It was during college that he came to dedicate his life to the Lord and began to attend a Chinese church in New York’s Chinatown. He also received his MS in Industrial Engineering at Polytechnic University and his Master in Public Administration at New York University.

After working as a Senior Health Planner for the Mass. Dept. of Public Health, he switched careers to serve in church ministry. Steven received his training from Dallas Theological Seminary, earning his MA in Biblical Studies and later his Master of Theology. He has served on the staff of the Boston Chinese Evangelical Church since 1977 beginning as Assistant to the Pastor. He was ordained and installed by the church as Associate Pastor in 1984 and became Senior Pastor in 2000.
Steven has been married to Nancy since 1976 and has two adult children, Stefanie and Matthew. He enjoys playing basketball and following the Celtics, Patriots, and the Red Sox.
