Minister

Heewoo D. Han

Hong Kong is the fifth country of residence for Heewoo.  He was born in S. Korea, raised in the U.S., but has also lived in Honduras and London.

After receiving his B.A. in Bible/Theology from Wheaton College (IL), Heewoo went to Honduras as a missionary.  Although he loved the sun and the people, he came back to complete his M.Div. at Yale Divinity School.  He then headed to England to work at All Souls Church, Langham Place before joining Shatin Anglican Church.

He loves playing tennis and going on beautiful walks around Hong Kong countryside when it’s not too hot, but his passion lies in studying and preaching the word of God and seeing people grow in Him.

 

Director of Discipleship

Niels van de Kasteele

niels-pictureNiels arrived in Hong Kong in July 2016. He is originally from the Netherlands (hence the
difficult surname) and moved to the UK in 2002, shortly after becoming a Christian.

In London he worked for London Underground, but as he got more and more involved in church decided to train for ministry, through doing an apprenticeship and an M.Th. at Oak Hill College. Before coming to Shatin he served at City Evangelical Church in Leeds, UK. He loves to see people studying the Bible together so that they grow in maturity and reach out to others.

Niels is married to Eun-Jung from South Korea. They met while hiking which is still something they love to do, though their three young daughters tend to make this infrequent.

 

Youth and Outreach Worker

Rhys Owens

Rhys grew up and studied in Wales, UK where he learnt to speak fluent Welsh and English from a young age.  

He started work as a lifeguard in the leisure industry before going to London City Mission for a year to see what inner city mission was like. Rhys then went to try overseas mission in Zambia, Africa where he studied at Bible college and worked with different aid projects.
On returning to the UK Rhys did ministry training at his church in Wales and then trained as a Youth Worker at All Souls, Langham Place.  For the last two years he has been working again with London City Mission, reaching the marginalized with the gospel whilst studying Urban Mission.
Rhys likes swimming, rugby, supporting Liverpool Football Club, making and eating bread and trying to play the guitar.

 

Children’s Worker

Keturah Owens 

Keturah grew up in Yorkshire in the North of England and said she would never move to a big city.  However before moving to Hong Kong she spent eight years in London studying art, working for an NGO and then training as a children’s worker at All Souls Langham Place. After training Keturah worked with a small church in a poor London district coordinating their children and families program whilst studying Urban Mission at London City Mission. She has also been involved with children’s ministry on short term mission trips to Paraguay, the Dominican Republic and Mexico.

Keturah loves the creative challenge of teaching God’s word to children and seeing even the smallest learning big truths about God, wherever that means she has to move. She also enjoys painting, swimming, pancakes and exploring with Rhys.

 

Ministry Associates

Pauline Chew

Pauline is a print designer by training, and joined an advertising agency shortly after graduating from design school. However after 3 years of promoting stuff which she wouldn’t have bought for herself, she left the industry but continued to work as a freelance designer from home, which enabled her to take care of the household and her 2 daughters who came along soon after. Although she has been serving in church for over 20 years in various ministries, joining the church as staff has always been wishful thinking, so she is thankful for this opportunity to receive formal study and training in her new role as Ministry Associate.

Pauline is from the sunny island of Singapore.

 

Ariel Pinero

Ariel comes from the Philippines and is serving in Hong Kong for the first time.  He worked at Calvary Chapel Bible College, Dumaguete for almost 3 years after graduating from it.  He’s passionate about sharing the gospel and leading worship.  He loves singing, playing the guitar or the keyboard and composing Christians songs.  Ask him to play one for you when you meet him!

He’s married to Immalyn who has the same heart of reaching the lost.
