Pastor Eugene ChoCo-founder and Executive Director, One Day’s Wages
Eugene is the co-founder (along with his wife) and visionary of One Day’s Wages – “a new movement of people, stories, and actions to alleviate extreme global poverty.”
The strategy of ODW is to create a collaborative movement via integrating Human Relationships, Social Media/Technology, and the Power of Story. ODW promotes awareness, invites simple giving (one day’s wages), and supports sustainable relief through partnerships, especially with smaller organizations in developing regions. Since it launched in October 2009, ODW has been featured in the New York Times (twice), the Seattle Times, NPR, Mashable, and numerous other media outlets.
Eugene is also the founder and Lead Pastor of Quest Church – an urban, multicultural, and multi-generational in Seattle, Washington and also the founder and Executive Director of Q Cafe – an innovative non-profit community cafe & music venue.
Eugene and Minhee have been married for over 14 years and have three children. Together, they live happily ever after in Seattle, Washington.
