Ps Daniel & Phoebe Chua


Recently, Ps Daniel Chua, an EAST Adjunct Faculty who has been our Staff Retreat Speaker and taught classes like Pastoral Leadership and Exposition of Ruth announced that he will be retiring as the Pastor-at-large of Mount Carmel Bible Presbyterian Church which he has been shepherding for the past 33 years by the end of this October.

Ps Daniel has been married to Phoebe for 37 years, and together they have three adult children who are all married (eldest son Timothy & daughter-in-law Melanie, daughter Evelyn and son-in-law Melvin, and youngest son John Calvin and daughter-in-law Lynette) and five grandchildren.
