Currently, Setan is the President/CEO of TransformAsia, and Randa is the Field Director, managing Women’s and Children’s Ministries. This includes The New Development Center in Kampong Chhnang, the Battambang Trade School, the Kambour Village Community Center, and the David Center Orphanage in Anlong Veng.

Randa Yos Lee
Randa Lee escaped from the Killing Fields in the late 70s and met Setan Lee while in the refugee camps along the Thai/Cambodia border. During her time in the camp she came to know Christ and was married to Setan Lee shortly before travelling to the US with him and his family. They settled in Colorado and she has raised two children, Benjamin and Sandra, with Setan. As Cambodia opened up to the world she and Setan both would find themselves serving the Lord by taking the Gospel message back to their home country.
Randa now serves with TransformAsia as the Field Director, working to manage the different projects, women’s ministries, and children’s ministries.

Phillip F. Smith, Jr. (Apostle Phil) was raised in Massachusetts. He attended Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island where he obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in Judaic studies. In 1992, he moved to Denver to attend the University of Denver College of Law and graduated with honors in 1995. While in law school, Apostle Phil simultaneously prepared for ministerial service in a local, Denver-area Methodist church and was ordained as a Deacon in 1994. In 1998, he was prompted by God to found Colorado Christian Fellowship (CCF), a non-denominational, Full-Gospel church where he serves as senior pastor. After two years, due to CCF’s rapid growth, Apostle Phil stopped practicing law in order to serve the church full-time. It was also during this time that the Lord clarified his call to ministry, calling him to the Five-Fold ministry office gift of “Apostle” and assigning him to do ministry throughout the state of Colorado. Through CCF, he is fulfilling his apostolic call to plant churches and train and release God’s people for ministry. Apostle Phil is a dynamic Bible teacher who illuminates the Word of God through the unique anointing on his life and ministry. He is married to Sylvia, whom he met while attending Brown University. They have two children, Dominique and John-Rudolph.
