With a clear calling from God, Pastor Joshua and Delphine Cheung were sent to Hong Kong by Taipei Bread of Life Christian Church. Together, they founded 611 Bread of Life Christian Church (“611”) in May 2001, with a mission to preach the good news of Jesus. Over the past 19 years, God has led 611 to grow from a few to over 8,000, with a myriad of ministries, such as evangelistic conferences, couples camps, family camps, bible school, marketplace prayer meetings, New Year evangelistic booths, to name but a few. 611 has also organized different cultural events, including musicals, and South East Asia network conferences, while building centralized churches throughout the world. The Church continues to bring forth blessings to many families, communities and different nations.
In particular, the 611 Children’s Church has been established since the beginning of the church, with a strong passion for the nurturing and education of children. Significant resources have been invested into children’s lives and their growth. Children’s Church occupies an exclusive venue of approximately 11,620 square feet, with over 10 full-time teachers and dedicated co-workers, as well as around 70 volunteers, most of whom with a background in education. The focus has always been character shaping and personal growth. Children are given opportunities to go for short-term missionary trips abroad, serving different nations and organizations. They are cultivate as leaders of the new generation as well as excellent students with impeccable character and studies.
