Kevin and Sharon Har are both Malaysians who moved to Hong Kong in 1990. They began attending Calvary Church Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon where they received discipleship training from Pastors John and Pam McGovern. They were married in this Church 20 years ago and all three of their children were born in Hong Kong.
As a young boy, Kevin’s parents dedicated him to Chinese and Hindu gods. He grew up in a pagan worshipping environment where idol and ancestral worship was prevalent. Serving and helping out in the Chinese temple, praying with joss-sticks, candles and burning paper for offering to idols became routine rituals.
During a time of hopelessness and seeking for life’s direction and purpose, a friend shared the Good News and the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to Kevin. In 1984, Kevin received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and never looked back since. The Lord Jesus Christ had set him free from idolatries and all bondages of the past. Praise the Lord!
Over the years, both Kevin and Sharon have served God faithfully, as ushers in Church; leaders in the Bible study homegroup and prayer ministry ; and as Sunday school teachers. God began to train, equip and raise them up through the Calvary Church Fellowship, shaping them as they take up leadership roles in different ministries.
Kevin has a full-time job as a Farm Supervisor in an educational establishment in the New Territories. He enjoys the work in promoting organic farming and the green nature. Prior to Hong Kong, he had worked in Malaysia, Singapore and Shenzhen, China.
Sharon is a great ministry partner and a wonderful mother. She flies with a major airline and is actively helping out in the children’s church, leading the women’s ministry and organizing church and fellowship events.
In early October, 2005 Kevin and Sharon were ordained, appointed and sent out to pioneer Calvary Church in Tung Chung, Lantau Island. Pastor John Malcolm and Calvary Church Hong Kong leaders laid hands on the Har family and released them to establish this work in this community. Tung Chung is a modern township engineered to cater for the aviation industry at the new airport – it forms an important gateway for visitors to Hong Kong. The challenges of this fast expanding township are exciting with plentiful harvest ripe for harvesting.
