THE REVEREND JONATHAN WONG

PRIEST

team_johnathan
Jonathan’s passion is to help people understand the lavish, undeserved love that God has for each one of us. This gospel (“good news”) orientation is at the heart of all that he does as the pastor of the English-speaking congregation of the Church of the Good Shepherd.

He received his tertiary education in the United States of America and in Canada, but was born and raised in Singapore. His ordained ministry with the Diocese of Singapore began in 1998, and since then he has been intimately involved with youth work and church planting both locally and abroad for most of his ministry life, and as a result has a heart to help train and develop young leaders towards gospel-centered church ministry.

Jonathan and his wife Karen have been married for 25 years, and have been blessed with three children Rachel, Elisabeth and Daniel, as well as a black Border Collie-Labrador mix named Shadow. Jonathan is an avid football fan, loves to play golf, and trains for triathlons.

PASTOR AGNES LIM

PARISH WORKER

Agnes is a strong believer in King Solomon’s advice to “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22: 6) This is especially pertinent seeing as how she is constantly running with the children from the Shepherd’s Kidz, Boys’ Brigade and Girls’ Brigade ministries. The simple faith and bursts of energy from these young people inspire her to be creative and relevant.

Raised in a large family and a tightly-knit church, Agnes sees God’s family as the biggest household of all. She has a passion to bridge the gap between the various generations of Christians beyond borders and cultures. Nothing thrills her more than helping the younger generations to learn about God, His people, and His faithfulness.

Off work, Agnes enjoys spending time with her family and friends both locally and overseas.

JENNY SEOW

ADMINISTRATOR

team_agnes
Jenny has been the Church Administrator for the Church of the Good Shepherd (English) congregation since 2004. Having served as a missionary for seven years in Europe in the 1990s, She has a strong desire for people to experience a personal revelation of God’s love, and sees her administrative role as a gateway to touch individuals in the church, to help them see they are precious to God.

Having devoted seven years in her younger days to serve the Lord as a missionary in Europe, Jenny is grateful to have lived a life without regrets. She testifies to a life given by God, and is a firm believer that ‘God is debtor to no man’ (Hebrews 6:10).

Jenny and her husband Emmanuel, whom she met during her missionary stint in Belgium, have settled into Singapore as home since 1997 and have a precious son, Manuel. In her free time, Jenny loves listening to music, reading, and also less boring activities like shopping.
