OUR DEACONS

Brother Allen Lee

Brother Allen Lee was born in Melaka, Malaysia. He was introduced to the gospel of Christ through his secondary school friend and completed the Bible Correspondence Course (BCC) in 1977. He soon obeyed the gospel and was baptized in Melaka later that year.

Brother Allen left Melaka for Penang to complete his tertiary studies and thereafter settled down in Kuala Lumpur. Since he became a Christian in 1977, he had assembled with the brethren in Melaka, Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Section 17 and later at Subang Jaya before placing his membership at the Kota Kemuning church. Much of his Bible training came through studying from faithful brethren and from bible lesson preparation.

Brother Allen is married to sister Annie Lim Lee Yoke. They are blessed with a son and recently, a granddaughter (Hannah). Their son, Kevin and daughter-in-law, Vivian are both faithfully serving the Lord’s church in Kota Kemuning. Brother Allen currently serves as a deacon at the Kota Kemuning Church of Christ and regularly teaches there.

Brother Allen holds a degree in Building Housing and Planning from Universiti Sains Malaysia and a Bachelor of Jurisprudence from Universiti Malaya. He is also an Associate of the Australian Insurance Institute. He started his career in the insurance industry in 1987 and is currently handling branch operations in RHB Insurance at their head office in Kuala Lumpur. Lord willing, he will be retiring in a few years time.

Brother Allen spends his free time reading and occasionally tends his mini fruit plantation at home.

“My earnest hope is for the church to remain faithful and continue to evangelise under the good leadership of our faithful elders.”

Brother Sam Tan

Brother Samuel Tan (Sam) is a deacon in the Kota Kemuning church, having served in this capacity since 2012. Brother Sam has also previously led the Membership Affairs and the Benevolence ministries in this congregation.

Born in 1975, bro Sam grew up in a Christian family, attending the Klang church of Christ. Attending Sunday School as a child, and studying the Word in the church at Klang, he was baptised in August 1989, during a gospel meeting held by Demar Elam.

Brother Sam has been married to his wife, Sister Magdalene Chew for 17 years. They have been blessed with three children, sis Kimberly (age 16), Kaitlyn (age 14) and Caleb (age 10).

Having graduated with a Law degree from the United Kingdom, brother Sam has been working in the Human Resources sector since 1997. He is currently Vice President of Human Resources at Bank of America Malaysia Berhad. During his spare time, brother Sam is an avid gardener, previously enjoying badminton as well.

His hope and message for the church at Kota Kemuning is:

The church of Christ has brought meaning, purpose and fulfilment to me and my family. It is a place when you can be with like minded people who will regard and treat you as family. May more people experience this and walk closer to God each day.
