Assemblies of God Theological Seminary
Hedy Hung
Multitasking for ministry

As Hedy Hung leans back and closes her eyes for a brief break, she feels the warm Caribbean sun on her face. This is the perfect vacation for Hung, a student at Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in Springfield, Mo. But when Hung opens her eyes, the sun’s radiance is replaced by the light of fluorescent tubes, mixed with the blue-green glow from her computer screen. Surrounding her are stacks of books and papers that read like a who’s who of theologians and Bible scholars. She takes a deep breath, smiles and submerges herself in her studies.

“One day, I will take that vacation,” says Hung, 49, who balances her studies with being a mother of a teenager, a church planter and diligent scholar.

With so many titles there is little margin for error in time management.

“My life’s journey is constantly relying on my connection with God,” says Hung, who plans to make her life’s work educating Asians. AGTS, she adds, has prepared her for such a future. “I want to be involved in Christian education in Asia and to see more Asian theologians and biblical language teachers trained. I desire to see all of Asia reached for the kingdom of God.”

Since attending AGTS she has seen what it takes to be a good instructor. So much so, that when she goes into teaching full time she plans to emulate her AGTS professors’ methodologies and techniques so that one day she too can invest in her students and “prepare them for Christian work.”
