On 1 March 2009, City Harvest Chinese Church was greeted by a familiar face from Taiwan, Abraham Ku. Most people know him as the revolutionary pastor who has been making an impact for God in Taipei, Taiwan.

His church, Taipei New Life Church, is not only one of the fastest-growing in Taiwan, it also has a number of Taiwan celebrities as members, including Liu Genghong, Faye Chan and Real Huang, member of the famous singing group, F.I.R.
Many of the Chinese Church members were very excited to hear him preach. Member Jeannette Soh said, “He is really passionate about the church penetrating into culture. Despite the fact he is a pastor, he is still able to be culturally relevant.”
True to his reputation, he definitely did not disappoint. The title of his message was “Strengthening the Spiritual Life”. It was a very simple message because Ku felt that it was very important to help everyone to start from the basics. It is only with a good foundation in Christ that we know our destiny in God.
He taught the congregation how to use the Bible to pray and read effectively, giving very clear step-by-step instructions.
Cell group leader, Tan Qiaoping said, “His message was very inspiring. It made me think about whether, we as leaders, serve in new wine skin or old; whether we are ministering out of duty, or out of love.”
