Everyone in church knows him as “Uncle” George. He is a true-blue Singaporean and has retired from his engineering profession. Elder George loves cooking, especially for others, and emphasizes that he cooks to "not only fill your stomach, but to 'pamper'your taste-buds."
Though raised in a Christian home, Elder George did not personally encounter and receive Christ as the Lord of his life until he attended a men's seminar more than 30 years ago.
In the past, Elder George and his wife, Nieke, used to open up their homes to Indonesian students and brought many of these youths to know Christ.
Their heart is for church-planting and they now travel the region to do exactly that. They have 2 sons and 1 daughter, Gideon, Damien and Genevieve, and 4 grandchildren.
