Bruce Chang immigrated to the United States from Taiwan when he was twelve years old. At the age of 17, he converted from Buddhism and was baptized then subsequently served a mission in Arcadia, California, speaking Chinese. A lifelong learner, Bruce is the first college graduate in his family, his formal education culminating with a PhD in Organizational Leadership. For the past 25 years he has been working in the seminary and institute program, served as a counselor in a young single adult stake, and was a counselor in the California Arcadia Mission presidency. He and his wife, Kaziah, are the parents of three children. As someone who appreciates a good joke, Bruce believes the adage that laughter is nature’s unlimited supply of medicine and that eating with chopsticks makes anything feel like Chinese food.
