Rev. Christopher Cheung

Rev. Christopher Chin-Hung Cheung joined Toronto Chinese United Church as a congregation member in 1972. As a lay member, he actively participated in the activities and volunteer work in the Church by serving in various capacities over different periods of time. He was Secretary and Chairperson of Church Board. In addition to planning for and teaching Sunday School, leading youth and children groups, singing in the church choir and leading bible study groups, he led the team to start Cheer Day Care Centre of Scarborough and served as Principal and Superintendent of T.H. Chan Memorial Chinese School in the early 1990s. He decided to leave his work as a Corporate Tax Analyst in 1995 and, sponsored by our church, became a full-time minister in 1999 after graduating from his Master in Divinity Degree course at Emmanuel College. His last service before retirement was at Mississauga Chinese United Church.

Rev. John-Thomas (Tom) MacNeil

Rev. Tom MacNeil was born in Lindsay, Ontario. He spent much of his formative years studying math, sciences, and drama. His classmates in high school suspected that at some point he would develop some ground breaking computer software; unfortunately, Facebook, Twitter, and Google all beat him to it. He was a regular attendee at Sunday school and church until his early teens, as with most kids his age. However, he felt a need to return to church in 1999, and a need to discern his calling for ministry in 2009.
Tom has been involved with the Southwest Presbytery Community Ministries Commission, Jane/Finch Community Ministry, and the Cummer Avenue United Church Drop Inn program. He was involved in a number of committees at his home congregation of Cummer Avenue United Church. Tom also served as an interfaith hospital chaplain at The Scarborough General Hospital during a unit of Clinical Pastoral Education. He believes that the God of mission has a church, and church communities need to be responsive to God’s call and act as Christ’s body in the world.
Tom was recently ordained in the United Church of Canada, and gained significant ministry experience during his time as a Candidate for Ministry. He was in student ministry at Trinity United Church in Malton, where he led the congregation from almost disbanding to being a stable community of faith. He interned at Westway United Church in Etobicoke, where he worked with members of all ages, providing Sunday worship leadership for adults and youth, Bible studies and pastoral care. He was ordained with an appointment to Humbervale United Church in Etobicoke, where he journeyed with the congregation while their minister was on leave.
Tom graduated from the University of Toronto with a B.A. in Cognitive Science in 2013, and from Emmanuel College with a Masters of Divinity in 2018. Prior to this, he worked for a number of years in software engineering for a home security manufacturer. When not engaged in ministry, he practices yoga, capoeira (an Afro-Brazillian martial art), and paints fantasy and science fiction miniature models. Tom and his wife Angela live in Brampton with their dog, Patches.
