Before Andrew was baptised, his name was Kelvin. Now in his mid 30’s, he is happily married to a godly wife whom he met in 2008.
Though born again in 1997, he started his committed walk with Christ as a disciple in 2000. Back then, he worshiped in Hope Singapore Church where he discovered his mission to testify of His grace as a ‘tentmaker’ in Vietnam.
In 2007, he received a revelation from God that took his walk of faith to another level. It was the vision of the Church in the 21st century engaging and influencing the marketplace; taking the kingdom of God into the heart of the city. Consequently, that vision led him to City Harvest Church in Singapore.
At CHC, Andrew actualized his mission when he received a job offer that required him to be based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. In 2011, he and his wife relocated and resided in Vietnam for four years.
Interestingly, it was in Vietnam that the Holy Spirit brought them through a process of unlearning, relearning and learning of the Church, the Kingdom of God and the heart of the Father. That journey deepened his relationship with the Holy Spirit and resulted in him and his wife being used them as ‘seeds’ to plant an organic church community that was based on the gospel of the Kingdom.
Now sent back to Singapore, Andrew believes he and his wife have return in a defining time of Singapore’s history towards fulfilling her destiny as the Antioch of Asia. And in a time as such Singapore needs to be reclaimed as the ‘beachhead’ for the gospel of the kingdom to be preached here and to the region.
Today, Andrew and his wife are now repeating this process of being ‘seeds’ to be planted for an organic church community to grow in Singapore. It is his vision to see the kingdom of God (with Christ as King) being re-established in Singapore, Vietnam and Asia.
