pastors

Edward Lee, Lead Pastor

edward.lee@encountercc.ca

After experiencing the realness of God at 16, Eddy wanted his friends and family to know God beyond the institutionalized church. Having been mentored throughout his life by a community of believers, Eddy deeply values the importance of discipleship and being an active and contributing member of a faith-praxis community.

 

Eddy has served as a pastor in Canada, Korea and the United States. Most recently he served as Moderator of the English Presbytery of the Korean Presbyterian Church Abroad (2018-2019). He believes that God has used each of these ministry contexts to stretch him, prune him and shape him into a better servant of God. He is married to his wife, Hyehwa, and has two children, April (daughter) and Eden (son). 

Education: BSc, McMaster University; M.Div, Regent College; Education & Reception Certificate, Knox College; Th.M in Missiology, Fuller Theological Seminary

Rachel Chong, Executive Pastor

rachel.chong@enountercc.ca

Born and raised in Scarborough, she became increasingly aware of God’s relentless pursuit of her during her formative years in university. She was ardently opposed to pursuing student ministry, but God had other plans for her and she ended up serving as a youth pastor soon after she finished her undergraduate studies. Though she entered ministry kicking and screaming, it was there that she began to fall in love with the God who restores and affirms our identities. She now passionately seeks to equip young people with a heart for God’s Kingdom.
 

For a number of years, Rachel lived communally with other believers in Toronto - simply for the love of knowing Jesus and doing life together. Some of her favourite pastimes include MMA, cafe hopping, and preparing really big dinners. She is happily married to Dennis and you can usually find them exploring their neighborhood together. 

Education: BA, University of Waterloo; M.Div, Tyndale University College & Seminary
