After escaping the Khmer Rouge and emigrating to the United States, Chiv In never planned to return to Cambodia. However, the Lord had other plans, and He has led Chiv to be instrumental in the founding of seven churches in Cambodia. Chiv and Emara make regular trips to Cambodia to disciple a growing number of disciples and to share the life-changing message of Jesus.
Teams from First Church accompany Chiv and Emara to meet with and encourage the young congregations. Read more about the origins of this ministry at First Church here. Click to learn more about Chiv’s ministry Heart for Cambodia.
Chiv also serves part-time on the staff at First Church and part-time as pastor of the Cambodian Fellowship of Carrollton.
