On Thursday evening, July 20, 2017 ABSW received this word pertaining to Professor Emeritus, Dr. James Chuck.

Our Hospice nurse transitioned James into a calm restful state by 4:00 PM today. He passed away quietly at 4:44 PM. The family had a precious week with him in Santa Cruz, the children were all present when he passed. We are so grateful for his life, and lift up praises and thanks to our God!!

Becky, Paul, Carol, John and the whole Chuck family

Dr. Chuck was a long time Professor of Theology and Church Ministry at ABSW as well as long time pastor of First Chinese Baptist Church of San Francisco.  Even after his retirement from ABSW in ca. 2005-6 Dr. Chuck continued to serve on the Pacific Coast Baptist Association (PCBA) board, hold theological workshops, and speak at public events.  He will be missed.
