Gary CHAN
M. Theo & Min (UK)
Chairperson 2014/15

Gary grew up in a Christian family in the Presbyterian tradition. Back then God was simply the “big guy” that he would run to (frequently) only in times of trouble. His adventure with God really got started in his early 20s when he made his decision to follow Christ at an altar call in a Methodist church where he was the only respondent. He subsequently spent the next seven years learning to love God passionately in a large independent church where he was involved in the worship ministry. Gary helped to start the Sunday Service at the Free Community Church and actively serves today in the church leadership, worship ministry and missions. He graduated in 2011 with a Masters in Theology & Ministry from King's College, London.

Jaime LOW

Jaime was born into a typical Buddhist/Taoist family, and did not have a good impression of Christianity due to encounters with over zealous Christians.  Her relationship with god began not with a dramatic experience, but with a slow exploration through books and seeing the presence of god in friends around her.  She now continues her journey of faith in FCC, and hopes to live out an authentic life where her thoughts and actions are aligned with her understanding of being a follower of Christ.

John CHEONG


John has always set his sights on the heavens. Through his deep fascination for astrophysics and cosmology that inspired him to complete his Bachelor studies, he has frequently encountered his Christian faith through the telescope of skepticism and thought. He joins his fellows at FCC in the journey of discovery of a faith relevant to the times and a love of God steadfast through the ages.

Chong Lip KOH


Chong Lip grew up in a predominantly Buddhist background, until he encountered Jesus in the classrooms back in his secondary schools. He converted at 15, wanting to experience the abundant life that Jesus promises to all, to even a misfit like himself. In his first year at Church of Singapore(Marine Parade), he got baptised and served faithfully as a Sunday school teacher. Today, Chong Lip oversees the video ministry and co-leads YOUnique cell group. He hopes that through his time on the Board of FCC, he will be able to represent the diverse voices of the congregation.

Soo Kuang ANG


Soo Kuang believes he holds the most awesome image of God - a squeaky clean porcelain toiletbowl. "Because God takes in all of our s***, and flushes it away." He developed and nurtured his relationship with God through the people he met and has come to love at the Free Community Church, and hopes to make it a space where "every person can experience God in their own special way".

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Yan Mei PHOON


Yan Mei had grew up in a ordinary Chinese family. She had come to know God through secondary school, accepted Christ at 14. She had attended a independent church for 7 years, the church had help her be grounded in her christian faith but she had questions if God can love us for who we are. She set out to explore the possibility of being different and loved by God in FCC. She believes that God loves everyone the way they are and leads them back in his timing. Yan Mei served in worship team as keyboardist and AV. She had co-lead PLUSH cellgroup for 3 years.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Zihao WONG

Zihao grew up in a typical Buddhist/Taoist family, and did most of his schooling in Christian-based institutions. He believes that his Christian faith and journey has taught him to question conventions and to push for multiple and deeper ways to understand the complexities of our worlds where relationships are formed with one another, and where our actions do matter to others who share the same spaces in the city as us. He has been serving in the FCC community as a worship leader, music and project director for various church and community outreach events, and recently, part of the project team for the renovation programme to move to our new space in One Commonwealth. He believes that these projects help to give “voices to the voiceless”, and seeks to be involved in more of such platforms in future.

 

 

 

Irene LEE

Irene started attending church with her siblings since she was five years old, and was baptised when she was ten. Fiercely independent, she believes that a loving and forgiving God had kept her out of harm's way even when she had every opportunity to be bad growing up. 'I could have been in and out of jail were it not for fellow Christians whom the Lord had used to guide me through the challenges I had back then'. She continued attending church faithfully and had even gone to remote parts of Thailand and Sri Lanka as part of the Christian outreach missions in her late teens and early twenties. Her experiences there cemented her faith.
Irene attributes her success in life and who she is to a benevolent and gracious Lord and is humbled by the conviction and example of her ever-present companion Jesus. She prays that by serving in the worship team and now, as part of the board, she can encourage others to return to our creator and experience the unconditional love that was, is and is to come.
