After being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor, Dave Jiang started asking some hard questions: "Why Me?" "Was the universe just random, or was there reason and purpose behind it?" "What happens at death?" In the midst of five brain surgeries, radiation treatment and miraculous recovery after 28 days unconscious in a coma, he became motivated to search for something beyond human invention, control and understanding. Disregarding any and all preconceived notions and beliefs from the cultural and religious establishment, his search for empirical and historical evidence for an extraterrestrial deity led him to seek out Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, Moslems, as well as scientists and intellectuals. Researching modern and historically verifiable ancient texts while undergoing myriad medical procedures and enduring increasing pain and impairments, something made itself apparent, leading to viable answers and meditations about "Blind Faith," divine sovereignty, the nature of suffering, eternal joy and punishment, and divine calling. Despite never graduating high school, Dave Jiang (barely) completed a Bachelor's Degree from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL after cramming a four-year degree into 6 years. After being employed in corporate America by IBM for 2 years, he spent the next 12 years on full-time campus staff with Campus Crusade for Christ. He is currently engaged in an independent ministry working among professional and civic organizations, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, art galleries, campuses, churches, and the occasional evangelistic stand-up comedy gig in bars and nightclubs. Interacting primarily among those disenchanted by the traditional church, he seeks to bring the abundant, pleasurable and joyful life promised by Jesus to those outside the religious establishment. Financed entirely through investments from organizations and individuals, and from holdings in the securities markets, God has granted him the freedom to pursue whatever ministry opportunities he sees God presenting and calling him to.
