  • Pastor Adam McCulloch

    Adam was born in Oklahoma in the USA and grew up in West Virginia. Adam grew up as a non-Christian, and wanted nothing to do with Christianity throughout high school and into the beginning of his university years. Yet God did an amazing work in Adam’s life while attending university; God began convicting Adam of his sinful lifestyle and opened His eyes to see the emptiness of life without Christ. Adam eventually believed in the gospel while attending university and experienced the joy of a new life in Christ. After becoming a Christian, he transferred to Liberty University in Virginia and majored in Biblical Studies.

    While at Liberty, Adam became exposed to the spiritual needs of the world through a summer mission trip to East Asia. After graduating, he moved to East Asia to teach English with a Christian organization, and while there he met his wife Mary. They returned to the US, got married, and then moved to Louisville, Kentucky where Adam studied theology and counseling at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

    After finishing seminary, the McCullochs moved back to East Asia and spent many years serving as Christian workers to a large unreached people group. In 2019, his family moved to Hong Kong where Adam spent 3 years as the associate pastor at Ambassador International Church. In August of 2022, Adam became the pastor at ECC.

    Adam and Mary are blessed with 3 wonderful daughters – Katie, Caroline and Anne. All three girls attend International Christian School in Hong Kong. In his free time, Adam loves hiking Hong Kong’s trails, enjoying Hong Kong’s food, and watching American football and basketball.

  • Rebecca Pesquera

    Ministry Support Coordinator (Children's Ministry)

    Rebecca was born in the Philippines but raised in Hong Kong. Growing up in a Christian family, she had always desired to serve the Lord in ministry just like her parents. Most of her years in the church, she has served in the Music Ministry and later committed more of her time in the Youth and Children’s. She believes that in doing God’s ministry one has to be well-equipped in His Word and well-grounded in Jesus Christ. The yearning to serve the Lord became evident upon reading Matthew 9:35-38.

    She went on to study at Philippine Baptist Theological Seminary (PBTS) where she got her Bachelor of Theology and later received her Master of Divinity in 2017. During her stay in the Philippines, she joined an independent non-profit Christian organization called C.A.R.E. Inc., based in Baguio City as part of her mission work. They reach out to the indigents in the community predominantly the street children, bringing them to Christ through feeding and evangelism.

    Serving in the Children’s Ministry in ECC, she believes that a good foundation of Faith and Service can start at a young age, just as it should be the pillars of our Christian lives.

  • Shannon Brown

    Director Of Ministries

    Shannon was born in Tennessee in the USA. He grew up in a Christian home and though genuinely converted as a boy, it took years before he would know what it truly meant to follow Jesus. When he was 14 his dad passed away. This made a huge impact in his life because he saw his father die trusting in Christ. By his grace, God put older men in the church in his life to disciple him and mentor him in the absence of his father. He has served in virtually every form of ministry from intern to missionary to worship leader to lead pastor. He is so thankful to now serve at ECC as Director of Ministries. His life goals are to Behold, Belong & Be Sent. Ask him what that means.

    He drinks tea not coffee and could eat Indian food every day. He is married to Amber and they have 5 children (Piper, Zeik, Lottie, Millie & Borden) and love living in Hong Kong.
