Mei Ching Chen
I grew up in a Christian family in Malaysia and moved to Adelaide in 1997 to study. Although I was brought up in a Christian home, my personal faith journey only began when I was 12. I made the decision to accept Jesus into my heart when my family miraculously survived a serious car accident which made me more aware of God. From that point on God became real to me. I knew he had protected and kept my family alive for a reason.
Coming from an Assemblies of God church background at home and moving countries, I found much love, care and concern at AACC. Even after marriage, my family and I continue to call AACC home and I enjoy watching my two children growing in their faith.
As the Church Administrator, my heart is to see not only the congregation supported, but also the pastoral staff, as they carry out the work the Lord has called them to do. Together with the Leadership Team of the church, we aspire to be accountable to the congregation, the wider community, our government and most of all, to God.
As an enthusiastic nature-lover and avid gardener, when I am not at church, I love visiting garden nurseries and parks with my family.
