Steve Chong

Steve Chong is the founding leader and director of the RICE Movement and he loves seeing how God is raising up the next generation of young people come to know Jesus and be renewed in their faith. Growing up with Chinese-Malaysian family, schooling at James Ruse High School and studying Commerce meant that even though he was born in Australia, Steve has been surrounded by Asian youth all his life which has likely fuelled a passion to see his Australian-Asian demographic be used by God.  Having worked as a youth pastor, he completed bible college and then spent 7 years leading a church, but now is part time working for RICE and part time in an itinerant preaching role, living by faith and speaking at different churches and events in Sydney, Australia and abroad. He is married to a Naomi and they have two boys and two girls all under the age of 10.
