Pastor Lee Hock Chin
Rev. Lee Hock Chin is the Pastor of Cornerstone Church, Singapore. He was saved while attending an evangelistic Bible Study on the campus of National University of Singapore. He was touched by the love and mercy of God for wretched sinners. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but hath everlasting life” (John 3:16). Two thousand years ago, Jesus came into this world, and He died on the cross so that all who trusted in Him should have their sins forgiven.
Mark 8:36 in particular lodged in his heart: “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” The inward struggle between selfish desire for riches and Jesus would not go away until September 1986, when he was finally born again and he committed himself to follow Jesus. What tremendous joy it was on that happy day!
After graduating from NUS with a Bachelor’s degree, he worked in the Asian real estate sector for almost 20 years before the Lord called him in 2008. James 4:14 reminded him about the shortness of his remaining life, which he wished to devote full-time to preach the Gospel of Christ.
In 2008, he studied under Dr. Michael Barrett in Geneva Reformed Seminary, South Carolina, USA, and graduated with a Master of Divinity in 2011. His pastoral ministry began in Life Bible-Presbyterian Church (LBPC) focused on Adults — singles, married couples, and parents. He taught Church History courses at the Emmanuel Reformed Bible College (Singapore) and the Evangel Reformed Seminary (Kuala Lumpur), and led mission trips to Cambodia, Indonesia and Myanmar. In August 2020, he stepped down from LBPC as he felt burdened to serve in churches without pastors. He then preached at local and foreign churches: Ebenezer BPC (Melbourne), Evangel BPC (KL), New Life BPC, and Cornerstone Church, etc.
In God’s perfect timing, Rev Lee was unanimously elected as Pastor by the congregation of Cornerstone Church on 26 March 2023.
Pastor Lee is married to Wendy, and the Lord has blessed them with two sons, Marc and John. John is married to Paloma.
