On The Personal Background
Sidney Mohede was born in March 27th, 1973. The native born Indonesian, spent the rest of his teens life in Los Angeles, United States. It was not until he turned 22 and graduated from his major in fine arts that he decided to strive for the lost souls in Indonesia. He went back to Jakarta in 1995 and enrolled in a local theology school. His encounters with JPCC senior pastors, Ps. Jeffrey Rachmat and Ps. Jose Carol changed his life forever. He did not realize that during his first meetings; yet as both leaders strived for the excellence, their teachings brought Sidney to a whole new level of faith and Christianity. Along with other praise and worship members of the church, Sidney's life has grown abundantly in Christ and he has gone through series of the most breath-taking events with God. "The blessings in my life are things that are beyond my understanding. How they happened in my life, I can't really explain. Yet, I know things do not happen instantly. Each thing I did to serve Him best has delivered my promotion. He opened doors that no man could shut." He got married to flawless Etha Mohede on May 9th 2004 and blessed with two cuties, Ethan Mohede and Chelsea Faye Mohede. The youth pastor has been on stage with Delirious, Reuben Morgan, Joel Houston and Hillsong Church as well as contributed to a world charity event for a Tsunami Relief in Los Angeles. He released his first solo album Surrender couple years ago. Being sold for thousands of copies, the album was then revised and republished in 2005. At the moment, Sidney is completing the production of his second album Better Days.
Sidney, is the leading youth pastor in his local church Jakarta Praise Community Church. The proud father of two is now a big daddy to around 300 youngsters united in this relevant community called Oxygen. "I always feel like having an enormous baby that keeps growing each day, and I am extremely thrilled to see the baby grows. I love my Oxygeners so much." His heart is immediately captured by the youth church as the youngsters show their immediate loyalty to the pastors by giving their all to serve the church. The praise and worship team, identified as True Worshippers Youth recently went on stage to produce their first gospel album entitled Breathe. It was Sidney and Jussar Badudu, his co-pastor in Oxygen that were the proudest creatures on earth who could not stop praising the team work of the Oxygen members who managed to demonstrate the presence of the Lord Most High to thousands of teens.
