Meet Pastor Klein Tan
I aspire to live – not a good life but a great one. Worldly pursuits, though interesting are but fleeting. As a Counselling Therapist, I’ve witnessed the frailty of man – and I, too, am not spared from it. I’ve discovered that human dignity is of matchless worth. As a Christ follower, it’s about living up to God’s calling.
My principle? Start well and finish well.
Hence, investing my time in the lives of people – seeing conflicts resolved, marriages restored (I had the pleasure of witnessing a divorced couple remarry after two years of counselling them), getting youth out of trouble and then empowering them to take charge of their lives – is gratifying.
I want to be used of God to positively impact the lives of anyone who crosses my path. This is my privilege. This is the great life I aspire to. This, for me is, is life’s greatest investment.
My wife, Margaret, is a blessing! She has a heart of servanthood and supports me with her love and her giftings – she’s objective, faithful, hospitable and discerning. A great helpmeet in my calling as a pastor. We’ve three children – Gracelyn, our eldest who is 19, Amadeus who’s 17 and Keane is 11 this year. Our hope is to see all three of them fulfill God’s call in their lives. May they each encounter God for themselves and establish their own godly family. Gracelyn and Amadeus serve in youth ministry whereas Keane who is in Sunday school, occasionally helps babysit the toddlers in our midst. He is a compassionate boy. Once, he walked a blind man back to his house on his way home from school. What a joy is it to serve God as a family!
