Dr Eric Yap
A pioneering lay leader of Mustard Seed Community Church, Eric helped start a Christian NGO in the Philippines 10 years ago. The aim was to tangibly show God’s love to unreached and disadvantaged communities, thereby bringing about wholistic transformation, an aspect of Interserve he deeply identifies with.
Eric, by profession, is a medical professor and scientist at Nanyang Technological University. He considers himself as a tentmaker in the medical school teaching future medical personnel. He also devotes his time to inventing new technologies so that those in poorer rural communities can diagnose diseases early and receive timely and better treatment.
Ps Paul Tan
Pastor Paul graduated from Abilene Christian University at Texas, USA in 1996 and has been serving as a pastor in Geylang Church of Christ for over 30 years. The church has graciously allowed Interserve Singapore an office space on its premises for its operations, for which Interserve Singapore is extremely grateful.
Pastor Paul has a keen interest in building management, as well as rich historical knowledge of Geylang and the various good works being done in the area. This wealth of knowledge has been invaluable to the mission of Interserve.
He sees himself in the role of providing pastoral covering and contributing to the practical aspects of Interserve’s organisational development. He is a crucial addition to the board as being in close proximity to the operations of the team, he will be able to facilitate conversations between them and the board.

Anne has worked cross-culturally in the banking industry in Hong Kong and Shanghai, and only moved back to Singapore in 2015. While there, she volunteered to serve and engage with various communities, which resonates with Interserve Singapore’s focus. She, too, has a heart for the ‘hard places’.
Anne admits that though not all are called to cross-cultural missions, yet as followers of Jesus, we are all called to missional living. She believes serving as the secretary of Interserve Singapore’s board is one such expression.
Ps Andrew Raman
Pastor Andrew currently worships and serves at St John St Margaret’s church. He graduated from TCA college in 1997 with a Masters in Divinity. He has also served as a Vicar (lead pastor) in Chapel of Christ the Redeemer and as a chaplain to St Hilda’s primary and secondary schools. One of his desires is to see the next generation rise up in faith and fervour to serve the Lord. He also hopes to see every people group becoming a community of faithful disciples in Christ.
He, too, sensed the Lord gently nudging him to be part of Interserve, as Interserve focuses on people groups that are considered ‘unreached’. He hopes that together, both board and staff, will discern God's leading and steer Interserve Singapore towards a God-directed mission.
Vincent currently worships at St John’s Chapel. He graduated from Trinity Theological College in 1992 and served in a pastoral role till 2003. Separately he also worked with the migrant population in Healthserve. After graduating with an MA in counselling, Vincent handled cases ranging from counselling incarcerated individuals to mediating marital conflicts, as well as guiding those with special needs. He also started a social enterprise with a brother in Christ to serve marginalised families with complex needs in the region.
Vincent feels honoured to be part of Interserve Singapore’s board, and looks forward to working with both the board and the executive team in strategising with intentional and passionate focus on Christ's mission.
