Joshua came to the US in 1976, just in time for the US Bicentennial. God, through a miracle, brought Rev Stephen Chow's family to plant five Chinese churches in the US, so Joshua served with his family from his teenage years.
Joshua graduated from University of Maryland in 1986 with the B.S degree in Computer Science. Following many promptings, Joshua felt the calling to further study God's word and enrolled at Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS) in 2012. He graduated with MBTS in 2020, soon after his retirement.
It has long been his desire to lead his wife and three sons to serve our Lord as Joshua in the Old Testament did.
