Dingli Chen


Dingli was born in Suzhou, China. He did not grow up in a Christian household and was only introduced to Christianity when he came to America for college. He gave his life to the Lord during his freshmen year at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). 

After graduating from RPI and having been called to ministry, Dingli chose to attend Northeastern Seminary in Rochester, New York where he received his Master of Divinity degree. He has gained experience in pastoring while serving as pastoral intern at RCCC and engaging in the college fellowship ministry. Dingli is also a part of the spiritual care team at Rochester General Hospital as a chaplain intern. 

During his free time, he enjoys working out, playing video games and taking care of his Bernese Mountain dog, Kiki.
