Chaplain Angela Li

Associate Director

Angela Li currently serves as associate director of Adventist Chaplaincy Ministries for the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists. Her area of responsibility covers the west region of the United States – California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and Hawaii.  She is a commissioned Seventh-day Adventist minister and an endorsed Adventist health care Chaplain. She also serves as a part-time pastoral staff at the Mission Road SDA Church.

Dr. Li is board certified with Association of Professional Chaplains and has received her MBA degree from University of Redlands, Master’s in Clinical Ministry degree from Loma Linda University, and PhD degree in Practical Theology from Claremont School of Theology.

She worked as a hospice chaplain before joining the Chaplains Department at the Loma Linda University Medical Center. After working as a full-time health care Chaplain for six years, Dr. Li joined the faculty at the Loma Linda University School of Religion. Besides teaching, she was serving as the program director for the MS Chaplaincy program. During her service there, she led the upgrade of the program from 72 to 108 quarter units, which then meets the requirement for board certification and endorsement.

Together with her husband, Ken Li, DDS, they have two children, away at college. Dr. Li sees God’s love, grace, and compassion as a healing agent and basis of spiritual growth for all. Her passion and research interests include pastoral development/formation, spiritual care/chaplaincy subjects, spirituality, Asian American theology, and spiritual development of youth. Her favorite scriptural passage is, “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8)
