RICHARD HONG

Teaching Pastor

Richard was born in San Francisco and raised in the East Bay. He went down to UC Irvine for college and worked as a Civil Engineer. Over time, Rich sensed more and more, a call and conviction from God to return to the Bay Area to advance the Gospel in the hearts of his home area.​ In 2008, he enrolled at Westminster Seminary California in San Diego.

 

In 2013, Richard served as an Assistant Pastor at a church in Southern California. Shortly after, he served as a Church Planting Apprentice in Fremont. Now, he is a pastor of Risen Hayward. 

 

Richard is married to his amazing wife, Jen, who works as a Product designer. She loves to draw, travel, hang out, and play with Champ, their cockapoo.

 

In his free time, Richard likes to play and watch basketball and soccer, hang out with friends, and get some reading in with a cup of joe.
