To help Christians embrace the Kingdom’s way of living and to rekindle a fresh love for the Word of God were the two main objectives behind Tan Ye Peng’s, Deputy Senior Pastor of City Harvest Church, two-day mission trip to City Harvest Church (Kuala Lumpur) from 22 to 23 September 2009.
Over the span of two days, a total of six meetings were held, seeing a total of more than 2,000 attendees. Three of these sessions were to train and equip over 300 church leaders.
Tan emphasized the need for mindset to be renewed in order to have a new way of living. The change in our mindsets consequently needs to be reflected in our lives. This message was directed specifically in two areas — to love to the extent that we are able to lay down our lives for each other and the need to always be in a position of repentance and faith. In addition, it is also imperative for believers to bear fruits in their ministry, namely to love and serve one another.
Tan also gave an altar call for leaders to let God deal with those hurts and allow the love of God to renew their passion to serve again. Many leaders came forward and responded to the altar call, many with tears in their eyes.
In another meeting with the church congregation, Tan challenged the cell group leaders to have a greater love for the Word of God and to receive constant revelations from God. It is only when a leader learns to receive from God will he have new things to offer and teach the people he is leading. Tan proceeded to pray for hundreds of cell group leaders, interns, subzone leaders and potential leaders who responded to his altar call.
Many were ministered during the altar call over the two days, with others finding themselves developing a stronger love for God and people. And with certainty, this is a step forward in embracing the Kingdom’s way of living for City Harvest Church (Kuala Lumpur).
