Serving Prison Fellowship Singapore is a core team of professionals, committed to providing quality services and programmes. We work with churches, organisations and volunteers to bring Christ’s restorative power behind prison bars.
Andrew Tay, Executive Director
Andrew joined PFS in 2016 after hearing a clear call from God to serve Him full time. He has served as a volunteer in various church ministries and other welfare organizations for over 30 years. Through a series of “sifting processes” in his personal journey with God, Andrew felt that God has prepared him to take on his current role at PFS.
“Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” Luke 22:31-32

Doreen Kwa, Administrator
Doreen first joined PFS in 2013, heeding the desire to experience daily the hope of Christ so that she may in turn be used as His vessel to impact lives for His glory. In 2014, she left to answer the calling for overseas missionary work in Cambodia and in Perth.
Doreen returned to Singapore and PFS in January 2017, in obedience to God’s will for her to continue serving Him in local missions. By His grace, she hopes for her life to be a continual transformation into His likeness so that she may help others to experience God’s goodness in their own lives.
Bruce Lim, Lead, Through Care
Bruce’s passion for helping recovering addicts, ex-offenders, and youths at risk stems from his own experience of being an ex-addict, ex-offender and gang member. For the past nine years, he has been involved in pastoral care and has volunteered with PFS for six years. His areas of focus are in counselling and training.
Aside from his missions training at YWAM (Discipleship Training School, 2004) Bruce is a certified DISC consultant with the Leadership Institute of America in 2009. He holds a Advanced Certification in Theology with Oral Roberts University (CHBTC) and a diploma in Counselling Psychology with Lee Community College.
Jensen Lee, Co-ordinator, Through Care
Through the love of Christians who served faithfully in the prison ministry, Jensen’s journey of faith began when he was incarcerated. He now wants to love and help others who have gone through similar experiences. His conviction to work in PFS came from Luke 22:32b: “…and when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”
Jensen is currently involved in the prison ministry at the Woodlands Evangelical Free Church. He also serves in the core team as a worship leader, facilitator and a befriender to recently released ex-offenders. Jensen joined PFS as a full-time Through Care employee in 2013.
Leong Weng Kee, Co-ordinator (CIRCP), Through Care
Weng Kee joined PFS in July 2016 after serving as a volunteer since 2000 with a vision to minister to the poor and those in need. Currently, he is co-ordinating the CIRCP (Christian Intensive Religious Counselling Programme) at Cluster A.

Emily joined PFS because of God’s calling. Her hope is to see inmates integrated back into society. According to her, “God prepared me by helping me serve as a PFS volunteer in 2009 and subsequently as a ministry employee from 2011.
I have learnt a lot from our clients and this experience has helped me become more effective and passionate about the ladies’ Through Care ministry.”
Peter Lim, Ministry Staff, Through Care
“It has always been my passion to care for the marginalised, to champion their cause in society and to be a voice for them. This also is the heartbeat of God.” Peter worked in the marketplace for more than 17 years and subsequently completed his Master of Christian Studies from the Biblical Graduate School of Theology (BGST) in 2006. Since 2011 he has found much fulfilment and joy serving in his ministry at PFS.

Adeline Wong, Lead, Family Care
“Totally awed by the orchestration of God ever since I was conceived”. Adeline joined PFS as a volunteer in 2012 and subsequently became the Family Care Co-ordinator in 2013.

She intends to make a difference in the lives of the families and children whom she journeys with through PFS.
Eileen Lee, Co-ordinator, Family Care
A Family Care volunteer since 2013, Eileen’s motivation has always been to fix her eyes on God in every circumstance of life. Using her professional experience in photography, she has captured countless moments of God’s love in action through the ministry.
Eileen joined PFS in 2017, following a growing desire to devote her time to the families of prisoners and ex-prisoners. Through PFS, she hopes to share her love for them with others in the wider community and inspire others to do more for the prison ministry.
“Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.” Hebrews 13:3
Priscilla Ang, Co-ordinator, Family Care
Priscilla wants to serve among the families and children just as a sinner saved by grace, to show others that in Christ she has found forgiveness, joy and a second chance, and they too can turn to Him and experience the same. She treasures dearly the children she works with and hopes to one day see them transformed into all that God has created them to be.
“Restore to me the joy of your salvation, then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will return to you.” Psalm 51:12-13
Vanessa Tang, Volunteer & Donor Management Executive, Resource Development
Vanessa believes that a life of purpose begins with obedience to the call of God. In the same way that she has experienced His compassion and salvation, she wants to impart a deeper understanding of God’s love, goodness and mercy to those whose lives are impacted by the Lord’s prison ministry.
Gillian Shen, Executive, Resource Development
It is on Gillian’s heart to see each person come to a revelation of who they are in Christ, as sons and daughters of a Good Father. For when we know the Truth, we can be bold and courageous to live out the purpose of our lives and work together as one body of Christ to bring His gospel to our community and to the nations. And, that gospel is a message of love – a language that transcends all boundaries of culture and the power that breaks every chain.
“And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” Colossians 3:14
