Ps Andrew Raman
Ps. Andrew is a pastor at St John’s-St Margaret’s (Anglican) Church. He has been married to Doreen for 35 years. He believes that the Great Commission is the key mandate of all believers and that the greater focus should be on people groups that are unreached. Ps. Andrew’s key decision to serve on the Board is largely because Interserve focuses on people groups that are considered unreached. He has been encouraged that there is a strong emphasis on faith and obedience to where God wants us to be – trusting the Lord in the presence of danger. He is also drawn to Interserve because he has seen many young people attracted to serve God passionately through the organisation.
Vincent graduated with a Bachelor of Theology from Trinity Theological College Singapore and holds a Masters in Counselling from Singapore Bible College. Subsequently, he served in a variety of roles in Harappan Komuniti (HK), an organisation that reaches out to the needy in Malaysia and Singapore. He also served the migrant population through Healthserve. He has worked with AIDSLINK International to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic. He currently does counselling work on an ad-hoc basis and facilitates service-learning programmes and community development for marginalised communities locally and overseas.
He believes that Global missions means the proclamation of the gospel of the kingdom of God and making disciples of all nations until the Lord returns. Interserve’s focus on hard places and wholistic ministry to the whole person resonates deeply with Vincent. He believes he can contribute as a Board member by supporting the staff team to fulfil the task of our missions mandate.
