Meet our Pastors
Rev. Ting Yik Leung
Pastor Leung was born in Hong Kong in 1962 and became a Christian after high school. After baptism in 1980 at Shatin Baptist Church, Hong Kong, he came to the US for college education. He received all his degrees in the US: BA in Special Education(Glenville State, West Virginia, 1983), MEd in Learning Disability and Rehabilitation Counseling(University of Texas, Austin, 1985) , MDiv and DMin(Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary, CA, 1988 and 1993). Pastor Leung returned to Hong Kong in 1988 and served 27 years at his mother church, helping the church to grow from around 100 people to 5000 weekly attendees. Pastor Leung and family moved back to the Bay Area in 2014. Pastor Leung’s wife Helen, married in January 1991, grew up in the Bay Area and currently works as a semiconductor test engineer in a Silicon Valley company. The eldest daughter, Zaneta, is a hair stylist while Kay, the younger one, studies at BIOLA University in Southern California. Reading is a wishful leisure activity for Pastor Leung if he can find some spare time to do so; while gardening, cooking, home improvement and car repairs have become “involuntary” hobbies.

Rev. Timothy Chan
Director of Education Services at Pleasanton Campus
My favorite food is糯米雞 (Sticky rice wrapped in lotus leaf). In order to work off its high calories, I like to do intense exercises such as listening to different pastors’ sermons, “Car Talk” radio show, and reading “Car & Driver” magazine….Oh! I also like swimming, hiking and fixing things at home, too! I am married to Sue. We met in Tennessee, and she is a wonderful wife and a dear partner in life and ministry.
I have been serving at Crosspoint since November 2005. As you can tell, I really enjoy every bit of the ministry experiences at Crosspoint because Crosspoint is a place where people can experience a personal encounter with Jesus, a home where people can discover God’s purposes in their lives, and also a base where people can impact the world with the love of God. It is my great pleasure and privilege to be able to serve God and you at Crosspoint. I love Crosspoint, and I sincerely hope that if you get a chance to check it out, you will love it too!”
Rev. Matthew Chiu
English Lead Pastor
I attended San Jose State University and graduated with a degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis on Health and Fitness Specialist. Shortly after graduation I attended a Christian conference that challenged us to do something worthwhile with our lives. It was at that moment that God called me into ministry as I saw serving God in full-time ministry as the only thing truly worthwhile. I attended Western Seminary and received my Masters of Divinity and joined the pastorate soon after.
I am passionate about seeing peoples’ lives being transformed by the power of the gospel. I particularly love training and discipling people to become influential leaders for the gospel in their spheres of influence (home, work, school…). I enjoy having deep and intentional conversations with people about life, family, and faith.
In my free time I love hanging out with friends, playing basketball, supporting my Golden State Warriors, and catching the latest movies that come out.
Rev. Jacky Cheng
Pleasanton Campus Pastor & East Regional Coordinator
I grew up in Hong Kong and immigrated to Bay Area with family in 1991. God called me at an evangelistic meeting, and then I was baptized and began walking with Jesus at 1993. By the grace of God I had many opportunities to serve at church through different ministries – fellowship, discipleship and church planting. At Crosspoint, I experienced the joy of serving God and the transformation of Holy Spirit. In 2008, God called me to preach His words to the end of the world and gave me confidence through Christ to God-ward. Then I attended Overseas Theological Seminary to equip myself as a full time minister. In 2011, I served at Crosspoint as Small Group Pastor.
My passions are making disciples, building church and bible teaching. My favorite quote is ‘Let my heart be broken with the things that break the heart of God.’
I enjoy cooking food for my wife and two daughters and also traveling with them to explore the world. In my free time, I like biking, running and swimming.

Pastor Alan Chow
Peninsula Campus Pastor
Alan was raised up in a Buddhist family; however it was God’s grace that he attended Christian junior high school where he began reading and studying the Bible. Though Alan acknowledged Christ as a Savior during his high school year in Hong Kong, yet he did not accept Christ into his heart until he emigrated into the United States. Under the guidance of a pastor at San Bruno, Alan came to have a deeper understanding that he is sinner because he had rejected God’s righteousness, plans and purpose in his life.
In 2009, while Alan was preparing for Sunday School for the last chapter of the Gospel of John, he was deeply touched by the love of Jesus to feed His lambs. From then on Alan has a strong sense of growing compulsion to preach and to teach the Word, and to minister to the people of God. After receiving the affirmation from some spiritual elders and pastors and most importantly from his wife, Alan enrolled at Christian Witness Theological Seminary in 2014 to prepare himself as a full time church minister. Alan obtained his Master of Divinity in 2016.
