Darryl is a 2.5 generation Chinese-American. His mother’s family emigrated to the US as refugees during the Vietnam War. His father was born and raised in a predominantly Hispanic neighborhood in Highland Park, CA. Darryl’s Chinese uncle lost his grocery store during the Rodney King Riots between the Korean and African American communities.
Growing up around immigrant-family owned small businesses, and now running one himself, Darryl has a profound respect and appreciation for the effort and will it takes for underserved neighborhoods to create homes, start families and build communities. Darryl is excited to see Rev 7:9 come to fruition with the church being the catalyst and foundation for bringing together homes, families and communities.
