In 1994, he began seminary in Zurich, Switzerland before transferring to Princeton Theological Seminary in the US where he received his M.Div. Steve was ordained in 1998 as an American Baptist minister.Prior to coming to Hong Kong, Pastor Steve served international churches in London, England (four years) and Bonn, Germany (seven years). Pastor Steve loves most sports, and was rumored to have been part of a Mah Jong club at the tender age of 12.

Brenda Loong is our Associate Pastor and she joined Community Church upon completion of her seminary training from Regent College in Vancouver. She spent most of her formative years in Singapore and then went on to study for several years in both Australia and the UK. Brenda has experience in the corporate world and so one of her areas of passion is the integration of faith and work. She also loves journeying with her community through all of life and she has a heart for cultivating authenticity in the ways we relate to one another in the body of Christ.

Grace Ghattas our Youth Director, came from Australia in January 2014 and began attending CCHK shortly afterwards. After a successful and enriching education, Grace worked in the areas of sports and recreation, sales and marketing, training and development and management. Growing up, Grace was regularly at church volunteering and enthusiastically involved in the community.  Significant life-changing experiences led to continued trust in God and she faithfully released the corporate world to accept the role as Youth Director and Outreach Co-Ordinator, incorporating the importance of service for others.  She is fluent in Egyptian Arabic, enjoys learning about new cultures and will play any sport fearlessly and competitively!  To chill, she immerses herself in HK beautiful trails, the arts and the gastronomic indulgences of this amazing city!

Anita Tatlow our Worship Director, is originally from the UK and prior to moving to Hong Kong lived for five years in Sweden, working in international worship ministry in churches across Europe. She and her husband Ben met when they were both studying music at Nottingham University, and both subsequently worked in London (teaching and marketing respectively) before waking up to God’s calling on their lives in music ministry. As well as working at Community Church, Anita is a vocal artist and composer – recording primarily as Salt of the Sound and Narrow Skies. Salt Of The Sound is the award-winning musical collaboration of Anita & Ben whose aim is to create songs that encourage spiritual reflection both in church environments and in times of personal quiet, while also exploring musical styles and expressions that bring a freshness to the Christian and ambient music scenes.

Anita also loves to sew, explore new places, and get back to nature whenever possible, where she feels most inspired to write.
