Karen Saechao

Vice-Chair


 

Karen was born and raised in Sacramento, CA. She found Jesus as her first love at age 17 and her life was never the same again. She is a graduate from Azusa Pacific University holding a Master of Arts in Management, Organizational Development and Change. She also cooks plenty, travels often, and takes quite a bit of photos. She wants to utilize her skills to do what God has called her to do – to bring healthy change and speak life into the vulnerable. With a heart for the Mienh, Karen aspires to bring hope to her community and share the same joy that she receives from Christ alone. Karen currently lives in Seattle, WA with her awesome housemates and serves the homeless population in Seattle.

Why do you serve the MCYA audience?

I serve MCYA because it help changed my life and I know it can do the same for others.

Michael Chao

Ministry Director


 

Michael is employed as a Fraud Analyst for JHA that works for 1000+ Banks/Credit Unions to prevent/stop fraud on credit/debit cards. He studied Religion & Philosophy at Northwest University, minored in Youth Ministry and Biblical Studies. He should have double majored on one of his minors, but he wanted to graduate that bad. He received his MBA from University of Phoenix (not planned) because while working there as a Financial Aid guy, he learned that tuitions for employees were free! The Great Commission commands Christians to reach the nations and to baptize them. It’s the second part that he has developed a burden for: discipling. People are becoming Christians, but very few are living with Jesus as their Lord. Michael lives in Sacramento, CA with his wife Fawm and wants to start a family.

Why do you serve the MCYA audience?

Growing up as the first child, his dad expected a lot from him. It was mandatory that he learned to speak, read, and write in Mienh (Roman Script) and that he understood the culture. Well, he’s also an American… US born. MCYA’s audience are the next generation of the Mienh community. Seems like a fit.
