We are 10 restless individuals who have read Christian literature for years and feel that it is the same as Western academic literature: plagued with Euro-American perspectives and examples, therefore at times inaccessible. We seek to offer Singaporean angles on the Christian faith, with the hope that these local, Christ-inspired narratives shall shine like the morning light.
AMANDA’S heart longs to see true worship, identity, and the pursuit of purity restored in the Singaporean body of Christ. She enjoys taking walks in the park, and the traditional $1 atap seed ice cream cone is one of the best local desserts to her. She often processes her days and moments through handlettering and poetry — read more @byamandagrace.
CHARMAINE enjoys quiet, spontaneous, and creative moments that inspire new adventures (preferably overseas). Some random facts: She loves surprises, well-thought-through pranks, and relieves stress with spicy food. She believes everyone can be an influence(r) in their own social spheres. Share your jokes with her @drunkonhelium.
IVY’S heart is for the family unit in Singapore and helping children with special needs, whereby she desires to see God restoring broken families. She thinks that the person who thought of combining kaya and peanut butter in sandwiches is a genius. She longs to go to Disneyland and see the aurora some day. Catch her @quahster.
JOSEPH thinks that Nasi Lemak ought to be Singapore’s national dish. He is passionate in discovering how faith can collide beautifully with urban culture, and believes in mentoring the next generation. He also wishes that a singular Singaporean accent will emerge in his lifetime. Follow him @firesandtimbers.
LEMUEL loves Hainanese chicken rice, especially the roasted variety. Cycling along the eastern coast of Singapore while watching the sun set rejuvenates his soul. He is dedicated to restoring and building lives to be Godly pillars of strength in their communities. Follow him @lemuelteo.
MARVIN desires to see Southeast Asia rise up in unity to testify His name. He believes in accelerating collaboration across cultures through startups and entrepreneurship. If you can’t find him, head to your nearest BBQ pit, and he’ll be there fanning the flames of deliciousness. Catch him @marvinngxd.
NATALIE is an introvert, yet loves investing intentional time on people. Her favourite colour is red, yet her wardrobe is filled with hues of blue. She is an open well when it comes to meeting and embracing girls with histories that can be transformed to become His stories. Share in her journey @intangibility.
Random. Creative. Observer of the world. RONALD loves to bear witness to the often subtle expressions of beauty. Sometimes through his eyes, sometimes through conversations, and if fortunate enough, through the lens of his trusty camera. See how he sees the world @absolutvintage.
SHERMAN’S spirit animal is ice-cream. When he’s not too busy polishing off a pint, he enjoys taking evening runs at Pasir Ris park after the rain, when the wild boars are out in full force. He is passionate about finding the shadows in the sunlight. Find him capturing moments at @shermanwongth.
WEI JIE is a bespectacled boy who is too afraid to put on contact lenses, or anything close to his eyes for that matter. Some people call him Harry, due to the close association to two famous people (one who has passed on, and the other fictitious). He surrounds himself with friends whom would walk him through the quiet waters and the valleys. Come walk with him @leeweijie.
KIM thinks that the world naturally settles itself into a beautiful mess that we don’t stop enough for in our waking hours. Whether it’s a pretty sight or a young person’s life, she believes there is no space too boring or meaningless to engage with. Find out how she’s almost too easily amazed by the everyday things at @rk.y.
MARCUS is most often seen with a cap on his head, in order to keep his stubborn hair flat. He loves how nature demonstrates the breath-taking wonder and creativity of God, and he is passionate about capturing these moments with his camera! Marcus hopes to see young people take courage in rising above the norm and live out their creative passions! Muse along with him @markersgo.
ZANN gets all squirmy in the presence of cute cuddly babies, truffle fries and sunsets. She loves the path off the beaten track and you can often find her dabbling into new things. Her hope is to see the youth in Singapore rise to live out their callings and destinies in Christ, creating social impact in the nations. You can zen alongside her @zxnl.
