HOC4 Official Statement Regarding Jonathan Chang
Over the past year and half, the church has investigated anddiscussed with Elder Jonathan Chang concerns regardingElder Chang's handling of the church's finances betweenthe years of 2001-2012, which appear to bring about someserious irregularities. The leaders of HOC4 have attemptedto resolve these issues, but with no success. Because thechurch was unable to resolve these issues, two members ofthe church filed a civil lawsuit against Jonathan Chang. Thechurch hoped that the truth would be resolved through thisprocess. This past week, the Justice Department of theUnited States filed an indictment in federal court againstJonathan and his wife, Grace Chang. Under the currentcircumstances, the church prays that the truth would stillcome out. This week the Board of Elders officiallysuspended Jonathan Chang from his "eldership" position of Home of Christ Church in West San Jose (HOC4) pending afinal decision by the Board of Elders and Deacons regardinghis eldership.
