Ps Barney’s transition to Global Alliance
After prayerful deliberation and a united leadership consensus, our Senior Pastors would like to announce the transition of our esteemed SPO Staff, Rev Barney Lau, to his next crucial station in the Global Alliance (GA) Movement led by Rev Edmund Chan. This is with the full endorsement of the Church Board and the Council of Elders as well as our Leadership Mentor, the Senior Pastors and Ps Barney himself.
This will take effect from 1 April 2021.
Ps Matthew Lo will step up to serve as East Centre Overseer.
Ps Barney’s transition into the IDMC Global Alliance (GA) is:
• One of spiritual and strategic deployment for a global work
• One of personal development and growth for the man
• One of succession planning for the local church
We are deeply thankful for his ministry over these past 12 years, being an integral part of the SPO team. We celebrate how God is leading him to a new season of ministry in GA where he can serve in a broader platform for Kingdom impact and contribution.
We are also thankful for God’s call on Ps Matthew’s life — leading our next generations ministry in its early years, pioneering with Ps Barney at East, and currently overseeing our worship services. Ps Matt brings with him a huge passion for missions and we look forward to a new season for our East family — building a generational church to win the world for Christ!
