Pastor Mike has been CBC’s Senior Pastor since 1 July 2018. He was the first CBC member to enter full-time ministry, serve in overseas missions and become a seminary professor.
He first served among the grassroots community at CBC, then among the Chinese businessmen and professionals in Cebu City, Philippines, and later, among the Chinese intellectuals in Philadelphia, USA. He also has a rich teaching and research experience, with publications published under his name in English and Mandarin. He was Associate Professor (Old Testament) at Singapore Bible College and is currently serving as an adjunct lecturer at several seminaries, both locally and abroad.
Pastor Mike holds degrees in BTh (Singapore Bible College), MA in Religion and PhD in Hermeneutics (Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, USA). During his free time, Pastor Mike enjoys traveling, fishing, hiking, and watching movies.
He and his wife Mae Ellen have two adult sons.
Preacher Karol graduated from the Singapore Bible College in 2015 with a Master of Divinity in Biblical Studies degree. She grew up in a Christian home and has enjoyed active service in church ministries since her youth days.
She had served in full time ministry for 6 years in an independent church before joining Changi Bethany Church in 2021. She is responsible for pastoral care in the English Service, as well as the Equipping, Pastoral Care Group and Worship ministries.
She has way too many interests, but trekking, drumming, erhu-ing and reading should come out tops.
