Ethan Kung

I was born in Asia and introduced to the church at a young age. Being at church felt like home but I did not know any theology and what faith in God was. I moved to Canada during my teenage years and went through a lengthy period of difficult time trying to fully adapt to the new culture. I was not involved at church all throughout high school and college. I had a hard time trusting anyone and lived my life as a lone wolf. In those years I thought a lot about life, philosophy, and what it all meant. It was the darkest time of my life.

I still thought about God, but struggled with a lot of intellectual questions regarding Christianity. I started seeking out answers to those questions in graduate school when I became involved with the Reformed University Fellowship. After 2 years of wrestling and learning a lot about apologetic topics, I finally had enough confidence to give my life to Christ.

During the initial period of drawing closer to God, I began to open up myself and let others get close. I saw the genuineness of God’s people and was able to take a step to have faith in them. Being in community does wonders for one’s soul and gave me a sense of motivation in life to bring good to God’s kingdom together with my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.
