HPPC has a long-standing relationship with China that began in the 1920s. Former HPPC senior pastor, Rev. Dr. Clayton Bell, was born in China where his father, Lemuel Nelson Bell, served as a Presbyterian medical missionary at Love and Mercy Hospital in the Jiangsu Province for over 25 years. The hospital expanded under Bell’s leadership and became the largest of the Southern Presbyterian overseas medical missions.
As a missions-driven church and in partnership with ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians, we are continually seeking the Holy Spirit’s guidance for new church plants both here at HPPC and in the community. In 2010, we felt called to minister to the Chinese community of Dallas by sharing the love of Christ and more about our Western culture. In partnership with Rev. Ben Wang (born in Beijing, China and Chinese pastor from Los Angeles), the Chinese Mandarin church was born in April 2011.
After continued growth in numbers and under the leadership of Rev. Wang, the church plant has a Sunday worship service, Saturday Fellowship and weekly small groups to study and discuss the Bible. Please continue to pray for Rev. Wang and the Chinese Mandarin Church Plant; that by being rooted and established in love, may have power to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ (Ephesians 3:17-18).
