Daniel & Yatang Cohee
Organization: Taiwan Church Planting Partners
Daniel is from Alabama. After graduating from Covenant College, he spent several years in short term missions both in Romania and also in East Asia. He later earned his M.Div. from Westminster Seminary and has served as a pastoral intern in several churches in the PCA and OPC.
In 2008, Daniel moved to Taiwan to study Mandarin and work with Joel Linton at a Taipei church plant, New Hope Church. This church particularized in 2008 and is now part of the Reformed Presbyterian Church in Taiwan denomination.
In the summer of 2009, Daniel moved back to Alabama to raise support for long term missions as well as take his ordination exams in the Evangel Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in America. He was ordained on September 13, 2009 as a pastor-missionary to Taiwan. After raising support, Daniel moved to Taiwan in early 2010. In addition to studying Mandarin and possibly Taiwanese, Daniel pastors New Hope Church, takes part in evangelism and discipleship, trains pastoral interns, and has begun laying the groundwork for future church planting and church-planter training. Daniel works with New Hope Church, the Reformed Presbyterian Church in Taiwan, and students from the Reformed Theological Seminary in Taipei.
In September of 2012, Danial and Yatang got married in Taipei. Yatang is originally from Kaohsiung in south Taiwan. Before meeting Daniel, Yatang was a mandarin language teacher at the Taipei Language Institute.
