My Bible has taught me 4 things:
1. Look back and thank God.
2. Look forward and trust God.
3. Look around and serve God.
4. Look up and seek God.
(From Father’s Day 2017)


In a perfect world, it is always good to have a father. However, in a fallen world, I have also observed that sometimes – an absent father is better than a bad father. A void in the heart is better than a thorn in the flesh. (From Father’s Day 2016)


The Bible describes Christians as those who turned the world upside down. Christianity is an Upside Down Faith. From the world’s perspective, Jesus’ teachings are also upside down. This year, our personal vision is “To live out our upside down faith and turn the world upside down.”

This is what I shared when we launched 3 Joint Community Programs with Khalid Mosque and Geylang United Temple.
This weekend, one of the programs, the Joint Blood Donation Drive, is taking place at Heart of God Church.


Singapore is a place where we know the price of everything but the value of nothing.
We know the price of a house but not the value of a home…


I am posting this video to brag about a young man in Heart of God Church.
I am also unapologetically boasting about God and what He can do in the life of a boy who loves…

This website is not about me, but about YOU.
It is created and curated to empower you with
Life and Leadership principles.
Some contents are original.
Some are gems I have come across that have
helped me.
However, in order to empower you, perhaps it helps to know something about me.

Pastor Tan Seow How (Pastor How) and his wife, Pastor Cecilia Chan (Pastor Lia), founded Heart of God Church with 3 other members in 1999. Today, generations of young people call this youth church their home. HOGC is not a church with a large youth ministry; it is a true youth church - operated by youths for youths to reach youths.

Pastor How is a Church-Builder, Founder & Funder, Businessman and Idealist. He is a combination of strong leadership, big vision and nano-administration. He is both a Dreamer and a Doer.

Pastor How’s vision is to “Raise up a generation of people who are willing to give God the best years of their lives…” And he has lived it out personally. In his 20s, he gave up his family’s multimillion-dollar business to pioneer HOGC. 14 years later, it came full circle when Pastor How took over the leadership of the business. Through his business, he is able to give his first million to church and by God’s grace, it will not be the last million he gives.

Ok, enough of the formalities… Here’s the real me.

Age – Let’s just say…Analog by birth, digital by choice.

Favorite soccer team – SF Giants.  The team I support is so terrible that baseball players can beat them…even without the bat.

Hobby – my wife.

Favorite quote – Behind every successful man is a woman.  Behind every unsuccessful man is at least 2 women.

Biggest regret – When I go running, I am thinking “Sweat is my fats crying”.

I am fearfully and wonderfully made.  Some people say that I have the brain of Chris Hemsworth and the body of Albert Einstein.
