Episode #30: The Intentional Life | Dr. Thien Doan

Pastor, Church Planter, Ministry Consultant, and Professional Life Coach Thien Doan join Jordan and Isaiah on the thirtieth episode of the Dream On Podcast. We discuss subjects just as mentorship, evangelism, church planting and productivity.

Born in Vietnam, Thien immigrated to the US at one year old right after the Vietnam War. Thien and his family were among the very first families to get to leave the country. His family was the first v immigrants to land in the state of Washington.

Growing up in LA, Thien found himself surrounded by his brothers that were going down the wrong path. Knowing there had to be a better way, he began to go to church. His father was more upset with Thien going to church than his brothers selling drugs and going to jail. Being raised in a Buddist and Catholic house, he did not receive acceptance from his family in the path he began to take with The Lord.

Thien felt led to pursue a future in ministry after helping counsel his brothers friends as they would have parties at their house. Later on college, he would feel led to be a missionary to an unreached people group. Later would find out the Lord was leading him to a church planting ministry.

He has been a pastor now for twenty years. He serves as Lead Pastor at City Lights Church in Orange County, California.

We are thankful for Thein’s time and look forward to what God has in store for his future.
