John grew up in a Buddhist family. Though his whole family are Buddhists, he chose to be a free-thinker. He came to know Christ at the age of 17 when his teacher invited him to her church. Because he felt the Lord guiding him to somewhere, he started to visit some other churches on his own. Finally, the Lord touched him at the Church of Christ the King. He received Christ there, got baptised and started serving as a choir member.
In 2001, his family was struck by a crisis. His mum passed away, and his father left the family for another woman. After that, he never went back to church again. Initially, he was angry with God. However, after some time, he started to feel guilty and feared returning to God.
In 2006, John was tasked to support the communication systems for the National Day Parade. During that long period of National Day Parade preparation, God used the people around him to reach out to him. Eventually, John was touched by the mercy and grace of God that he went back to church and started serving in Changi Methodist Church. Since then, God has guided John and exposed him to various ministries in his church.
In 2010, John was blessed with a beautiful and understanding wife, Alethea Chiam. In 2011, God blessed him with a son and he named him Christian. In 2013, God blessed the family with another son, Noel. In 2015, God was gracious to him and gave him another son, Asher.
In 2015, John faced another trial. He suffered from piles and received 6 surgeries which resulted in him staying in the hospital for 17 days. He almost died. It was then he made up his mind to answer God’s calling to reach out to the youth. In January 2016, he left his job, his old life and went into full-time sports ministry with Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). Since then, each day has been an amazing adventure for him. He has seen and continues to see how God works His miracles in FCA.
He strongly believes that through sport God will build His church and unite His people. With that belief, he continues to serve in FCA looking forward for that day to come.
