Q: Tell a bit about your background: where you were born and raised, where you went to school and what you studied.

A: I was born in East Malaysia and after finishing high school went on to study theology. I did D.Min. at Lutheran Theological Seminary, Hong Kong.

Q: Please share a brief version of how you met Jesus and how God called you into full-time ministry.

A: I was born a Catholic but accepted Christ in an Anglican Church. However I grew up spiritually in an AG church. In 1986 I received my full time call during a private prayer time. I physically felt the Lord walking into my room and touched my head as he called and consecrated me.

Q: Tell us about some (or all) of the places you served and how your ministry path led you to work with international churches.

A: In 1987, I was doing church planting in Zambia & Zimbabwe and subsequently pioneering language churches among Indonesians and Filipinos in Malaysia & Singapore. It was in 1998 that I was invited to ICA, Hong Kong as Associate Pastor.

Q: What do you feel are the biggest challenges facing international churches today?

A: I believe that we must present our message in such a way that people understand and see that we are people of the Word.

Q: How do think the international church has evolved or changed over the past 30-40 years and what have been the driving factors behind those changes?

A: ICA started with reaching Internationals English speaking and eventually went on to minister to Internationals that are non-English speaking in the 80s. After 2000, the church saw an increase of overseas Hong Kongers (local English speaking) attending. At the same time we moved into ministering locals non-English speaking as well. Looking back, the Lord was transforming ICA to be more Glocal (act locally, impact globally), where we are a church for all people and from all places. To be more inclusive rather than exclusive.

Q: What do you feel are the biggest challenges facing international churches today?

A: We lack resources, experience as well as theology to define and describe how we do church.

Q: What do think are the biggest opportunities for international churches today?

A: Inclusive, influence, and freshness.

Q: How do you believe that organizations like the Fellowship of European International Churches and the Global International Church Network can help the international church movement today?

A: Exchange ideas, provide training, sending of workers and exposure to IC in the other continents.
