Dr. Huibing He (pronounced "Hway-bing Huh") encountered Christianity when the church was "reopened" in China in 1980. She pursued her artistic education as well as her theological education in China in order to share her faith. Subsequently she came to the United States, where she received her doctorate in pastoral care at
Columbia Theological Seminary.
Dr. He is currently pastor of the
Smithtown United Methodist Church
in Smithtown, New York.
Dr. He has embraced the challenge of a dual vocation as both artist and pastor. Her work has been exhibited in Nanjing, China, in Hong Kong, in Austria, and in the United States. Her most recent exhibition was a retrospective of 57 works entitled "Revolution and Rebirth" at the Institute of Sacred Music, Yale University, in 2007-2008.
Dr. He's career objective is to cultivate a core of Chinese pastors in the ministry of pastoral care and Christian arts.
