Staff & Leadership
George joined the Hebron staff team in October 2015 when he started leading the Mandarin Ministry at Hebron. Since that time the ministry has grown substantially and continues to see lives changed by the Gospel everyday. In September 2016 George was examined and ordained as a Commissioned Pastor in the Christian Reformed Church. It has been a joy to work with George and his wife Janice, and we pray that God continues to bless their ministry.
Children's Ministry Coordinator
John has the important task of managing the Church’s finances and we are happy to have him as part of the Hebron Staff because he does an excellent job. If you have questions about tax receipts, or ministry budget items, etc. John is the person you need to contact.
Hebron Church is governed by members of the Congregation who have been elected to either the office of Elder or Deacon. In order to enable Elders and Deacons to flourish in their offices, Hebron has differentiated the tasks of these Elders and Deacons. Though the tasks may differ, the honour does not, and so there is no hierarchy in these offices.
Hebron Council is composed of Administrative Elders, Administrative Deacons, Pastoral Elders and Community Partner Deacons.
Board of Administration
The Board of Administration is composed of three Administrative Elders and two Administrative Deacons. As the name suggests, BoA is the administrative wing of Governance of the Hebron Council. The Council has given authority to BoA to act on their behalf as directors of Hebron Church.
The Elders of Hebron Church are to oversee the doctrine and life of the members of Hebron Church, as well as fellow office bearers. They shall exercise admonition and discipline, along with pastoral care in the congregation, as well as participate and promote evangelism and defence of the faith. The Elders shall further nurture in the congregation grateful and obedient participation in the Lord’s Supper through encouragement, instruction, and accountability.
The Pastoral Elders lead and govern the activity of the Hebron Care team. The Hebron Care team seeks to provide care, support, prayer, and Gospel love to those in the Congregation. The Hebron Care team consists of Pastoral Elders, trained Stephen Ministers, Pastoral Elder Assistants, and gifted Hebron Members.

Community Partner Deacons
The Deacons of Hebron Church shall represent and administer the mercy of Christ to all people, especially those who belong to the community of believers. They shall also stimulate the members of Hebron Church to faithful, obedient stewardship of their resources on behalf of the needy. This is to be done with words of Biblical encouragement and testimony which assures the unity of both word and deed.
In our ministries of mercy, Hebron Church partners with both local and global organizations. Community Partner Deacons are champions for these organizations within the congregation by speaking up for their needs, celebrating their great work and leading the congregation in support for them.
