Passion 99, a church situated in Taiwan, was greatly inspired by the level of faith and spirituality of the youth in City Harvest Church (CHC), Singapore.
The youth in this church experienced little breakthroughs and had many problems previously. Despite hard work and prayers, the people were disheartened when they did not see the fruits of their labor.

Their breakthrough came when Sophie Hsiung, founder and senior pastor of this church, enrolled herself to the Fast Track Pastor’s Course that was hosted by CHC Singapore in 2004. Hsiung was extremely challenged and moved by the hearts and passion of the youth as they served God and people wholeheartedly.
With the encouragement of Kong Hee, she was motivated to build a vibrant and dynamic church for God. She assimilated the strong discipleship values that Kong strongly emphasized, and duplicated them in her church.
She also implemented effective home cell group systems and focused on building relationships with the youth in Taiwan. Hsiung made a decision to break out of the traditional mindsets of reaching out to youth, and transformed her church to become colorful and creative.
Within four years, Passion 99 witnessed exponential growth from 12 youth to an astounding 110! The breakthoughs kept happening and they started a new church in 2008. Passion 99 is set to transform more lives for Jesus as Taiwan experiences a tremendous wave of revival!
