Before Andrew was baptised, his name was Kelvin. He was saved in 1997. Although acknowledging Christ as Saviour, he did not surrender his life to Him as Lord.
It was only in 2000 that he started his committed walk with Christ as a disciple and experienced the transformation power and love of God, the Father.
Subsequently, he obeyed God to leave his job as a club DJ and promiscuous lifestyle to enrol himself into a bible seminary that was part of Hope Singapore Church. It was there he grew deeper in love with God and His word.
At Hope, Andrew discovered his mission to plant the gospel in Vietnam. Later on in 2008, he moved to City Harvest Church where he actualized his mission.
In 2011, a job offer that required him to be based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam was presented to him. Needless to say, he accepted it. And resided in the city for 4 years.
It was in Vietnam that he rediscovered the biblical meaning of the “Kingdom of God” through a community of believers that was founded accidentally. The community grew organically and was missional in reaching the lost with the power and love of God.
Through this community, he encountered and experience Jesus in a manner that helped redefined what “Kingdom” truly meant. And that “church” was not about a building, but about His people – relationships.
In 2015, he was sent back to Singapore and he believes his new mission is to plant the Gospel of His kingdom in Singapore as what/how he rediscovered and experienced in Vietnam.
Today, he continues to serve as a ‘tent-maker’ and frequently travels to Vietnam to spend time with the brothers and sisters from that community.
