Eileen Toh, Pastor of the Children’s Church at City Harvest Church (CHC) was invited by the Joshua Generation Kids’ Church GBI Praise Revival for Jesus in Indonesia to be a guest speaker at the Indo Fest 2008 event held in Integrity Convention Centre (ICC), Kemayoran to train workers and teachers in children’s ministry.
From 11 to 16 September, her 16-member mission team demonstrated how to conduct a children’s church service, and shared their experiences to a 200-strong crowd from. Pastor Eileen was also invited to preach in four sessions. Praise and worship sessions coupled with workshops were conducted by the team to empower the ministry workers.
What struck Madeline Teo, a member of the mission team, was the influence of CHC on one of the churches there.
“I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the registration booth, the stage decoration and the dressing of the teachers; the entire lesson, right down to the props used, were exactly the same as CHC Singapore! I was delighted to see how blessed the little ones were,” said Eileen.

It was a visit to CHC by Pastor Daniel Martono that left such a lasting impression on him. He purposed to bring the same experience back to his church in Jakarta.
“They are an ordinary church doing extraordinary things for the glory of God,” said Madeline.
