Chinese Community Ministry Coordinator
Pastor Richard grew up in Singapore and is currently living out his dream of serving in an overseas Chinese ministry. As a talented vocalist who received training at the Singapore Bible College’s School of Church Music, Richard enrolled at Singapore’s Trinity Theological College where he studied theology for four years. On graduation, he served in church ministry in his native Singapore for six years before immigrating to Canada with his family in 2003, where they joined the Knox United Church family.
Richard describes his home church’s diverse congregation as a “truly Canadian local church,” and says that he is “pleased that we’ve found a place of worship where the Church leaders willingly accept people of all cultures.”
Richard and his wife Brenda leads the Mandarin fellowship. Together with their two sons the Wang family are ambassadors to Knox United Church’s creed of inclusive membership.
