DR. CHRISTINE JOY TAN 陳純慈博士
Dr. Christine Joy Tan with double Ph.D.’s in Education and in Bible is very qualified Educator and God’s humble servant. She will faithfully carry on the mandate God had entrusted to School founders, Mrs. Julia L. Tan, and Dr. and Mrs. Edwin and Helen Spahr.
God’s faithfulness and amazing provision for GRACE’s future is evidence in that – Dr. Christine Joy Tan is the granddaughter of Mrs. Julia Lee Tan, Founder of Grace Christian High School (now College). She is the eldest child of Rev. Dr. Paul Lee Tan and Mrs. Helen Go Tan and Dr. James L. Tan’s niece.
Although she grew up in the United States, Dr. Christine never wavered, since childhood to return back to GRACE (Philippines). She had the calling and conviction to come back to help at Grace Christian College, without claiming any specific position. (This despite other job offers from USA and the Philippines.).
Dr. Christine Joy Tan’s determination to prepare herself to better serve the School continues. Rev. Dr. Paul Lee Tan (Dr. Christine’s father) writes, “As parents, we can testify that Christine sincerely & humbly loves the Lord … ever since childhood. Totally devoted to serving God, she committed her life for full-time Christian ministry, as a young college student. Colossians 3:23-24 is her life verse. Her motivation, even from childhood, is to do her best in everything for Jesus Christ. For her accomplishments, she gives all glory & honor to God alone.” (From book: Experiencing God’s Grace: An 80-Year Journey).
