Rev Dr Daniel Chae,
Daniel is Executive Director of Amnos Ministries and Principal of Amnos Church Planting School. He was a Council member of the UK Evangelical Alliance, and is now a member of One People Commission of the EA and a Research Associate of the London School of Theology. He is married to Helen and has three grown-up daughters.
He has a combination of theological, pastoral and missionary experience. He was Managing Director of MV DOULOS (2004-2009), a floating Christian community of 350 volunteers from 50 nations. Earlier he served on MV LOGOS (1979-84) and on MV DOULOS (1987-88). On board those two ships he visited about 90 countries sharing the gospel, and in some countries planted churches which are still growing and are establishing new churches.
He was the Founding Pastor of Eastbury Church (1997-2004), a predominantly British congregation, on the outskirts of London. After obtaining a BA in Business Management in Korea, he received a BA(Hon.) and a PhD from London School of Theology. His PhD thesis on Romans, Paul as Apostle to the Gentiles, was published by Paternoster in 1997. He has also written a few books in Korean, and a number of academic and devotional articles. He has given special lectures at a number of universities and colleges around the world, and has spoken at international Christian conferences.
As a native Korean, he is keen to pay back the debt of the gospel to the UK Church, which blessed the Korean Church by sending, among others, both Rev Robert Thomas, the first missionary ever to arrive in Korea in 1866, and Rev John Ross who first translated the New Testament into Korean in 1887.
