Pastor Claudia Chong


Pastor Claudia is happily married to Pastor Jeff. Fervent for the gospel, she describes Jesus as the greatest deal one could ever get, and that motivates her to share the good news to all God has placed around her. Leading the Axis Adults congregation, Pastor Claudia’s desire is to see Christian adults living out their faith in their homes and at the marketplace and making an eternal difference in the lives of others.

Claudia loves good food and the company of good friends and family. She also enjoys exploring new places not just overseas, but within Singapore too. Follow her on Facebook and Instagram.

Pastor Christie Ong


Christie is the pastor of the Filipino congregation. Raised in a Christian family, she received Christ during her teenage years.

A former accountant and freelance financial analyst, Christie joined the church in March 1992, subsequently serving as a core team member, mentor, small group leader, and eventually a pastor.

Today, Christie preaches, teaches, pioneers and manages various ministries to support church growth. Her desire is to see a church that fervently preaches Jesus and the gospel of salvation, leading to the establishment of strong biblical Filipino communities in Singapore and all over the world.

Give Christie a good book and introduce her to some great jazz tunes, and she’ll be a happy woman. Follow Christie on Facebook and Instagram.

Pastor Jasmine Poon

Pastor Shirley Melinda


Despite her familiarity with Christianity as a result of growing up in Christian schools in Indonesia, Shirley realised in 1995 that what she needed was a personal relationship with Christ, not a religion. Upon graduation, she received the conviction from God to serve as a full-time staff in this church.

Shirley is the Worship Pastor. Blessed with a strong set of pipes, she is leading thousands to praise and worship God during combined services. Previously she was the Youth Pastor who discipled hundreds of youths to follow Jesus.

Shirley draws her inspiration from films, travelling and experiencing different cultures. Chocolate therapy never fails to perk her up when she is feeling down. Follow Shirley on Facebook and Instagram.

Pastor Daniel Tan


Daniel first visited Hope Singapore in 1996 and gave his life to Christ in the same year. A graduate from the Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, UK, the enterprising engineer started his own IT company with a few partners in 2001.

He started his church ministry involvement by leading a group of adults in 2000. In 2002, together with his wife Rachel and toddler son Matthias, Daniel left Singapore to pastor our daughter church in Johannesburg. Three years later, he returned to Singapore to serve as a leader in the Family group. In 2010, Daniel obeyed the call from God to become a full-time church staff. Currently, he is the Pastor of Office Operations. He also leads the family life ministry of the church and is dedicated to equipping all to build strong marriages and families.

The story of Queen Esther, who was called for “such a time as this”, has always inspired Daniel. He aspires to see more people living their lives to the fullest and doing their part to fulfil the Great Commission.

Daniel enjoys cycling, good food, and scouting for good bargains. Follow him on Facebook and Instagram.
