Zone Secretary Claire Yeo explained the purpose behind the meetings.
“Tan wanted to equip the members to be more effective in their penetration into the marketplace, living out the message of the cultural mandate and in so doing, winning souls into the Kingdom.” In essence, the purpose of Marketplace Explosion was to inspire the members in CK Zone to explode in evangelism in their campuses and workplaces.
During the meeting, Tan preached about the story of the four men and the paralytic and challenged the members to be like the four men who broke through four barriers to achieve their desired breakthrough — the paralytic’s healing. He also stirred the members and challenged them to think big and not to be restrained in their dreams and visions. The key to the four men’s success was the desperation they had in them. More than dreams, diligence and desire, it was the desperation the four men had in them that propelled them towards their breakthrough.
Indeed, we can only wait with bated breath to see what breakthrough God has in store for the 1,200-strong CK Zone as they cry out in desperation for a Marketplace Explosion.
