Our Pastors

Randy Chan


I was born in Singapore and attended Sunday School when I was 7 or 8. It was  there that I heard the gospel, and accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour of my life. I continued to attend church in Singapore and grew in my knowledge  of who Jesus is. However, my understanding of the Bible was moralistic in nature, with a limited understanding of what the gospel actually meant for my life.

As an international student here in Brisbane from 1998 – 2000, I attended the
English congregation at CCCB. I served in the international student ministry back
then, and grew in my knowledge of the Bible. At the end of 2000, I returned to
Singapore, and for the next 7 years, worked in public sector agencies, whilst  serving in various positions in the church I was attending. In 2005, I got married to my wonderful wife, Winnie, and in 2006, was blessed with our first child Isabelle. We moved back to Brisbane in 2007 and in 2009, was blessed with our second child, Christine. We’ve been attending SLE Church since the move back to Brisbane, and I have served in various ministries in SLE in a volunteer position, whilst working full time in secular organisations. Through the time sitting under God’s word in SLE Church, I have grown in understanding that the reach gospel goes beyond salvation, but extends to every aspect of my life. I had begun to feel a growing discontent between what I did in the secular world and God’s will and intent for the world.

In 2021, the SLE Church Council invited me to consider taking up the role of the
Executive Pastor. After a time of deliberation, I accepted the opportunity to step
into full time ministry work. It is my prayer that God will use SLE Church to fulfil
His purposes.
