CH Profile.png

Chung serves as our Next Generation Pastor working with our youth and young adults and supporting our children’s ministry. He is a devoted husband, father, and servant leader in our church community. Having grown up in an English/Chinese church, Chung has been involved in church ministry for over 20 years. When he's not serving at the church, you might find him cheering for Manchester United or the Essendon Bombers, lacing up his running shoes, or enjoying a good game of soccer.


Chung's passion lies in discipling and fostering spiritual growth in young people, particularly second-generation youth and young adults. He loves to combine his passion for discipleship with his love of food and coffee, meeting people over a meal or a coffee to connect and build relationships. With a professional background as an accountant and entrepreneur, Chung brings a unique perspective to his ministry. He felt the call of God to equip himself to better teach the Bible, leading him to pursue a Master of Divinity at MST.

In 2018, he was ordained as a Reverend in the Melbourne Chinese Bible Church, where he served as Senior Paster for nearly five years prior to joining TBC. His ministry strengths are preaching and teaching as well as fostering outreach ministries.


Rev Caleb studied at the Melbourne School of Theology, from which he earned a Master of Divinity.

His preaching is mainly exegesis based on the Bible.
