In Singapore to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of City Harvest Church (CHC) were more than 20 affiliate church pastors of CHC from the nations of Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan as well as Singapore.
A special luncheon was held for pastors and workers of these churches who traveled to Singapore to attend the thanksgiving and celebration services. The luncheon gave CHC’s senior pastor, Kong Hee, the opportunity to catch up with the various affiliate church pastors in a casual and relaxed manner amidst food and fellowship. Roars of laughter and much chatter filled the room as the crowd mingled and ate.
Says Tan Seow How, senior pastor of Heart of God Church (HOGC), Singapore, “What we experienced today was awesome, but of more significance is the sacrifice which Kong and Sun have made over the years to help bring CHC to where it is today. As we in HOGC celebrate our 10th year anniversary at the end of this month, we are very motivated to press on and see how the next ten years will unfold for us.”
When asked about what he took away from CHC’s 20th anniversary celebrations, Kevin Loo, senior pastor of City Harvest Church Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, says, “It is very heartening to see that even though CHC has grown so big, everyone is still one big family, running the same race together.”
The luncheon saw many of the affiliate church pastors up close and personal to Kong, their spiritual leader and mentor.
