Today we live in a very complex and challenging world with its varying standards of behavior, often pulling us in different directions. But our Bible-based teaching is aimed at providing the foundation for eternity-based solutions and life direction amidst this complexity.
We, the pastoral staff, believe in equipping our church members to meet these challenges by knowing, sharing, loving and practicing God’s Word.
Thus, we stand firmly on these convictions:
The God of the Bible is Our Lord and Master.
He is the supreme Lord and Master over all authorities and we belong to Him. We have been bought with a high price and we honor Him with our service and love.
The Church of Jesus Christ is One of Life and Transformation.
As we surrender our rights to Christ and seek His presence in our lives, the power of the Holy Spirit transforms us to be more Christ-like.
The Vision and Ministry of CGBC is to Proclaim Him and the Cross through Discipleship.
Though our church members are of different demographics, our vision– and its resulting ministry– is to develop and equip future disciple-leaders “who passionately replicate the character, ministry, and mission of Jesus Christ” to impact the world by:
• sharing the Gospel
• strengthening , encouraging and mentoring one another
• knowing His Word intimately
He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. Colossians 1:28

I was born and raised in Singapore. My wife Joyce is Malaysian, and we met while serving together on a mission trip in North Thailand. Together, God has called us from our ministry in Singapore to North America, both in Canada and the States working in the Chinese Church since 1996. God has given us three wonderful children, Deborah, Desiree, and Dillon.
When God called me to full-time ministry, He gave me a verse from Ezra 7:10 which has become the pattern for my life and ministry. From this Old Testament equivalent of disciple making, God has infused in my heart a passion to be more focused on this mission. My passion is to see men and women of God follow Him by being grounded in the truth, living it out in a loving manner and bearing witness for the Lord, thereby bringing others to know and follow Him as well.

Hello! Good to be back to my hometown where I embraced the life-changing gospel message in my youth. While in college, besides working towards my degree in Human Resource Management, I also learned about the importance of discipleship by being mentored and mentoring others. Upon graduation, I sensed the Lord’s leading to pursue sports ministry on the college campuses such as San Jose State University (Go Spartans!) and UCLA(8-clap!), as well as mission overseas. While interning at CGBC, I met my future wife, Julie. Together now, we have two children, Caitlin and Tyler. For those interested, I graduated from Talbot Seminary (M.Div) and Dallas Theological Seminary (D.Min). If you want to shoot hoops, talk about baseball, or grab some coffee and chat about making an eternal difference in the lives of others, let me know. Thanks!
