THE CHAIRMAN

Pastor Kirk Tan is a lay pastor of Covenant Evangelical Free Church (CEFC) and was founding chairman of its men's ministry called Men-in-Covenant (MiC). Since MiC began more than 10 years ago, MiC has reached men across churches in Singapore and encouraged various men's ministries to start up and to grow. More information on MiC and CEFC is available at www.cefc.org.sg

Kirk has been in the banking industry for more than 25 years and currently works in the wealth management sector. Since receiving Christ more than 20 years ago and besides his involvement in men's ministry, Kirk has held various leadership responsibilities at CEFC as a deacon of the Church Board, Director of Worship Ministry, Cell Group Overseer and Cell Group Leader.

Kirk's passion is to see men arise to the glorious destiny that God intended for His men.  He is a regular speaker at the platforms of MiC and other men's ministries.  He has also been involved with consulting with other churches keen to start or develop their ministries to men.

Kirk is married to Hui Peng, a full-time homemaker and a Cell Leader at Covenant EFC, and they have 3 sons.

KEY ADVISOR

Dr Geoff Gorsuch is the key advisor to the Men's Ministry Network.

Geoff graduated from the Air Force Academy in 1968 and flew over 100 combat missions in Vietnam as a reconnaissance pilot. For his meritorious service, Geoff was awarded the Silver Star and four Distinguished Flying Crosses.

Called out of the horrors of war into the ministry of the Navigators, Geoff counseled youth for years in the US and then became the Deputy Director of the Navigators' Ministry in France where he and his family resided for 13 years. In that capacity, he also helped pioneered new ministries in French Africa and Russia. Upon his return in 1992, Geoff was 'loaned' to the Promise Keepers (www.PromiseKeepers.org) to help them develop their men's ministry curriculum and to teach it to thousands of men and their pastors across North America and Europe.

In recent years, Geoff became Director of Men's Ministry for the Navigators (www.navigators.org) and has been foundational in the development of the National Coalition of Men's Ministries (NCMM), (www.ncmm.org). As part of their executive team, he continues to speak at men's conferences and seminars across the country.

Over the years, Geoff has written numerous articles, co-authored anthologies for men and has penned two books of his own for NavPress. The first book was based on his expriences in Vietnam entitled, On Eagles Wings. The second was one of the foundational books of the Promise Keepers movement entitled, Brothers. It helps pastors and laymen establish small groups for men.

Geoff holds a Bachelor of Science from the Air Force Academy, a Certification from the Sorbonne in Paris and a Masters and Doctorate in Practical Ministry from the Leadership Institute in Colorado Springs. Besides Geoff's national and international ministry, Geoff has also assisted many local churches and men's ministries in Singapore and beyond since he came over to reside in Singapore with his wife Diana since 2004. He is a regular speaker at men's meetings, seminars and conferences. Geoff and Diana have two married daughters, Nicole and Julie, who reside in the US.
