Swee Aun was born in Penang, grew up in Jerantut, Pahang, then to KL before coming to Singapore for his pre-university studies at National Junior College (NJC). He has built his career in IT (Information Technology) after graduating from NTU in Electrical Engineering.
In 1994, Swee Aun came to PP and was baptized later that year. Lai Fun, his spouse, was instrumental in prompting him to return to God after his wandering years. Since then, God’s word has worked in him and enabled him to grow in service to God’s kingdom. God’s goodness and blessings filled him with thankfulness, and he asked, “How shall I repay His goodness to me?”. The encouragement and guidance from his family and PP brethren has kept him going all these years.
Swee Aun is married to Lai Fun, his wonderful wife, supporter and blessing from God. She’s bright and cheerful, complementing his quiet self. Her faithful walk is an encouragement in their faith journey together. God has blessed them with two children and they are their pride and joy. Their son, John is currently equipping himself for full time ministry at Harding University. Their daughter, Christine is reading Law at the Singapore Management University (SMU).
Presently, he serves as an Elder at PPCOC after taking on the role of a Deacon from 2004 to 2017. He is also the Secretary of the PPCOC Board, Chairman of SIBI-Singapore and Indonesia Missions coordinator.
“My favourite verse in the Bible is Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” I trust in the LORD my God, the maker of heaven and earth. His grace and blessings continue to mould me for His good purpose and to be a blessing to others.” – Swee Aun
