Rev. Tim Nicholls - Ministry Director

Originally from Australia, I came to know Christ as a child, before maturing in my faith during my university years. Since graduating from Moore Theological College, I have been living in Malaysia and serving as the Ministry Director of Equip. I love teaching God's word, and showing people how Christ stands at the centre of all God's plans and purposes.

In my role as Ministry Director, I oversee both the teaching and logistical running of Equip in partnership with the Board of Directors. I'd be delighted to speak to you about the possibility of running Equip courses in your church.

 

Lydia Wong - Administrative Officer

I was born in Ipoh, Malaysia and grew up in a Christian family. Though I grew up in church, I didn’t personally come to know Christ until much later in teenage years. By God’s abundant mercy and grace, I managed to learn and re-learn the Gospel throughout my life. The most life-changing part was to learn the importance of reading, learning, and dwelling in the Word of God. The Word of God gives life to me as it points me to believe in Christ as my Saviour Lord, who stands at the centre of it all God's plans and purposes.

My role in Equip is to oversee all the administrative and design work, including registrations, promotions, organisation and exams. I'm the first point of contact for student enquiries and I too look forward to building relationships with all God's people that I meet through Equip.

 

Staphanie Mun - Certificate Courses

Staphanie came to know Christ at the age of 6, thanks to the boldness of her ballet teacher who sent all the children to Sunday School after ballet class every week. Though she heard stories about Jesus Christ back then, it was only during her tertiary education years that she really experienced the grace of God and accepted Christ as her Lord as Saviour. Life was never the same since, living a grace-filled life. 

Staphanie graduated from University of Strathcylde, with a Master of Pharmacy. She is married to an entrepreneur and they have three beautiful young children. She co-leads a mummies ministry in her church, with a desire to love, support, and pour God's Word into other women who are striving to be God-fearing women, loving wives and moms, and passionate followers of Christ. Things that Staphanie loves more than anything else include diving into the Word of God, her family and hobbies such as homeschooling, classical music, and mindful healthy living.

Staphanie's role is to assist the Administrative Officer with Equip's Certificate courses. She is grateful for the opportunity to be part of the Equip team, with its mission to increase biblical literacy and equipping Christians in every field that God has placed them.

 

Rachel Seak - Diploma and Degree Programs

Rachel was born in Kuala Lumpur and grew up in a non-Christian family. She came to know Christ when she was accompanying her grandfather to a Chinese church. Although she could not read Chinese, she was blessed to have a bilingual Sunday school teacher who would write the weekly memory verses for her in English. By the grace of God, she managed to learn the gospel during her teenage life. Since then, she yearns to better equip herself and others in reading the Word of God.

Her role is to assist the Administrative Officer especially in overseeing Diploma and Degree programs. She is grateful to have the opportunity to be part of the team in facilitating Christians to learn the Bible systematically.

 

Aaron Liu - Information Technology Officer and Partner Relations

Aaron was born in Brunei and grew up in Sarawak as a pastor's kid. The gospel was nothing more than a repetitive story to him until that gospel was again heard through a 'Two Ways to Live' gospel presentation at a university orientation in Australia. The gospel can never be underestimated and God's pursuing grace avoided. For this reason, he is extremely thankful to be part of Equip in equipping Malaysian Christians with the transformative true gospel of Jesus.

He oversees the IT operations of Equip, Partner Relations and also assists with some academic duties. He has a Computer Science bachelor degree from the University of Wollongong and a Master of Divinity degree from Reformed Theological Seminary.
