Who are we?
the Good Samaritan’s “own donkey” (Luke 10:34)
Rev Simon Tan and Rinda Teo
are the directors and spiritual ministers of Listening Inn.
Rev Simon Tan is an ordained minister (1991) and an Associate Pastor (from 1991 to 2008) with his home church, World Revival Prayer Fellowship. Before his theological training, Simon was a missionary with Operation Mobilization (OM) for seven years; for five of those years he was in Latin America onboard the gospel ship, MV Doulos.
Simon and his wife Rinda graduated from Bible College of New Zealand (renamed as Laidlaw College) in 1990. They have been giving contemplative prayer retreats since early 1991. Simon and Rinda have been trained as spiritual directors (1998) and are experienced spiritual directors. They work closely with Spiritual Growth Ministries of New Zealand, providing onsite supervision for those undergoing Spiritual Directors’ Training Program. They are also trained and certified (from USA) as Midlife Direction Consultants, equipped to offer midlife direction workshops and retreats.
Simon and Rinda continue to worship in their home church in Singapore. In between giving retreats, they provide one-to-one ongoing spiritual direction, journey with cancer patients, read, study, reflect and enjoy their morning walks.
