Richard & Lilian Tng
Senior Pastors – Pastoral Team
Together with his wife Lilian, Richard is the Senior Pastor of RWC and a credentialed Minister of Australian Christian Churches (ACC) in Australia. He became a Christian at the age of 17 and has never looked back ever since. Richard was actively involved in church even before he went into full-time ministry. Despite his busy work schedule, Richard was a head of youth and young adult ministries, connect groups and also mission teams. He was also a church elder and an associate pastor. Richard then became a full-time pastor in 2007 when RWC was formed.
Besides co-pastoring the church with Richard, Lilian is the founder of GEM Ministry in Australia & Philippines and GEM New Start Centre in Singapore with a mission of reaching out to girls in crisis. Her passion is to see women being set free from their failures, setbacks and despairs in life; emerging beautifully in side out; and living a life of God’s given destiny.
Lilian travels frequently to the Asia-Pacific giving speeches at conferences and workshops. She is also an author of 4 books encouraging people in the journey of faith. Together they have strong pastoral hearts and great empathy for those who are in hurts and in need. Richard and Lilian have four grown-up children, all serving in churches and market place. They value a strong and healthy marriage and family. Both Richard and Lilian enjoy travelling and discovering new places. They love just sitting at a café sipping a cup of coffee and relaxing in God’s beautiful creation.
Terence & Foong Peng Ong
Terence and Foong Peng are both from Singapore. They moved to Sydney in obedience to God’s calling. The couple have been married for over 20 years. They have two girls going to university and a son in high school. Their passion is to connect with people and to be a platform for God to bless those who they come into contact.

As migrants from Singapore, eating is one of their favourite pastimes – especially eating spicy Singaporean and Malaysian street food. They also prioritize spending time with family and friends. An annual escapade is to the scenic Blue Mountains and they make it a point to organise the outings twice a year – one in autumn and the other spring, gathering family and friends together for a fun-filled day out.

Chelsea grew up in the Church and having attended Sunday school herself as a child, she knows how important it is to cultivate a love for Jesus in young hearts. The memories and lessons you learn as a child stay with you long into adulthood.
Being a Speech Pathologist, Chelsea works with children and their families on a daily basis. This has only increased her passion for children’s ministry and it has allowed her to use the gifts given by God in different areas of her life. Chelsea finds working with children extremely rewarding because you get to be a positive influence on their young lives and you are able see them grow into who God has designed them to be. She desires to see children passionate about God and this all begins with experiencing God’s love for themselves and building solid foundations.
In her spare time, Chelsea enjoys spending time with her friends and family and trying out new recipes!
Head of Rockidz
Grace was brought up in a traditional Anglican family in Zimbabwe, Africa. She left her country in search for a better life for her son and herself. Making a tough decision in leaving her son in Zimbabwe for 8 months (he was only 10 years old then), she came alone to explore this country and to search for opportunities. All this time she kept to her faith knowing nothing else but who her God is.
Grace chanced upon RWC in 2014 and has never regretted. Her love for prayer and children has led her into the Rockidz and Intercessory Ministries. It brings her joy to see the children grow in their faith and her own faith is also stretched as she knows that God is working and fulfilling His word in Acts 2:17.
In the secular world, Grace is a registered nurse specialising in the treatment of wounds. Her passion has seen her obtaining a Grad Cert in Wound Management and a Masters in the same subject.Her favourite past times are watching movies, cooking and shopping. Whenever her busy schedule permits, she enjoys sitting on the couch and letting days go by.
