Yan Guang Ming, Senior Pastor of Rhema Christian Church in Tainan, Taiwan experienced phenomenal growth over the course of only three years from 2001 to 2004, growing from four to 123 people. City News caught up with the man of God to find out the keys to growth.
“I was very impacted by the ministry of Kong Hee as I saw how City Harvest actively took the gospel out of the four walls of the church to engage people in the marketplace and schools. Coming from a traditional church, youth ministry was unheard of.
However, God filled my heart with a burden to impact the next generation and ensure none was lost. It was a step of faith but we started to be relevant to the youth and many of our staff started to go into the Junior High Schools to teach in the ‘Victory’ Moral Education Course. This was an open door for us to positively impact the values and beliefs of youth outside church!” said Yen.
Many of the students they got to know from the schools the staff taught eventually came to know God and started to attend their church. Through active discipleship, many are growing strong in God and are doing the work of evangelism to reach out to even more of their friends!
