Over the months of September and October this year, City Harvest Church (CHC) School of Theology’s Academic Dean Tan Kim Hock embarked on mission trips to the Indonesian city of Surabaya. Working with Pastor Franklin and Nina Lumoindong of GPdI Elohim in Sidoajo, Kim Hock taught in the Bible School at Surabaya and preached at the church’s weekend services.
The objective of the week-long trips (8-15 September; 17-21 October ) was to complete the Bible Study courses such as Foundational Truths One and Two with the students at the Bible School, and also to help out CHC’s affiliated church during its weekend services.

Despite having gone on numerous mission trips before, Kim Hock is still amazed by the hunger for God’s Word overseas. Particularly on these trips to Surabaya, Kim Hock was touched by the students’ thirst for knowledge as they asked many questions and remained completely engaged during lessons.
GPdI Elohim in Sidoarjo recently broke through with 1,000 attendees for the weekend service which Kim Hock preached in, and has been growing from strength to strength, continuing this high attendance for several weeks now.
CHC is committed to help in the Bible Study Program in Surabaya, in the hope that many other churches will be similarly blessed as the program expands. Kim Hock is “looking forward to do his part in seeing the progress of (CHC’s) work in and through this church.”
