Mississauga, Ontario – Canadian Baptist Ministries (CBM) is pleased to announce the appointment of Joseph Lee as National Field Staff in The Golden Triangle region, effective April 1, 2021.

Joseph will serve alongside the Chinese Ministries Team, supporting ministry opportunities within the Golden Triangle region, and assisting in short and long-term ministry planning and budgeting.

As a graduate of Thailand Bethel Theological Institute (TBTI), Joseph has pastored several small churches in Myanmar since 1999, taught Bible courses at TBTI, and trained young Christians through youth training programs. He was also the Director of Maekong River Mission Fellowship in Thailand, helping local churches participate in mission through leading training sessions and organizing short-term mission trips to remote regions in the country.

His passion for serving God through mission work has led him to Malaysia Baptist Theological Seminary, where he is now studying to receive a doctorate in missiology. He is married to CBM National Field Staff Lilian Yang.

Says John Chan, CBM’s Director of International Partnerships, “We’re very excited to have Joseph join our CBM Chinese Ministries Team in the Golden Triangle region. Joseph is well-known in the region as a gifted teacher, seasoned pastor and a young leader with a great passion for Missions. His diverse ministry experiences as well as his commitment toward raising mission-awareness and mobilizing local churches for mission engagement in the Mekong delta makes him a valuable addition to the CBM family!”
