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. Since then he has been 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-centred church ministry.

Jonathan and his wife Karen have been married for 31 years, and have been blessed with three children Rachel, Elisabeth and Daniel, as well as a black Border Collie-Labrador mix named Shadow.



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 is passionate about bridging 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.




Evangeline’s purpose in life is to know God through His Word by the power of the Holy Spirit and impart that knowledge to others so that their lives may be renewed and transformed. To that aim, she is in charge of Christian Education in the Church of the Good Shepherd and preaches on a regular basis. Being effectively bilingual, she also does translation and interpretation work.

Recently graduated from Trinity Theological College (2019), Evangeline is learning the ropes of pastoral ministry. Nevertheless, she recognises that God in His sovereignty has prepared in advance through her years as a psychologist in the government service. Truly, nothing is wasted in God’s economy.

Despite being an introvert, she is open to new experiences, so it is hard to pinpoint her hobbies. At the moment, she is interested in K-pop, cycling and Christian artwork.



Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.

This is the guiding principle that she tries to hold onto as she carries out pastoral work. So often family, friends, members and strangers come with different concerns, and this verse reminds her that a timely action or word can do much for a troubled soul.

Kar Foon graduated with an MCS from the Biblical Graduate School of Theology where she continues to participate in short courses and discussion groups regularly, so as to keep abreast with the concerns and pressures of our society.

Kar Foon is a former MOE Secondary school teacher. She is married to Alan and they have an adult daughter, Hannah.

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. She 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 serving 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).
