David & Hoong
David and Hoong (affectionately known as Happy) are senior pastors of Church on Higher Ground. They heard the Lord's call on their lives in the seventies, during their student days in Scotland. Since then they have served Him faithfully, actively involved in building two local churches in Malaysia and in Perth before starting Church on Higher Ground in 2002.
Pastor David has the privilege of working both as a minister and as a consultant in IT and corporate strategic planning most of his life. His passion is to be a witness for Christ in everyday life right where God has placed him. Happy has served in the ministry for over 30 years while raising three boys. Happy and David have been married since 1974. Their family now includes three beautiful daughters-in-law, and seven grandchildren. The whole family is serving together at CHG.
As from January 2013 God has placed in the heart of Pastor David to leave his profession and dedicate his time working as a team with Happy in the ministry.
