Thank you for being a part of

“Voices Loud and Clear”

Global Pentecostal Summit 2023

A Heartfelt THANK YOU!

Sun and I are brimming with gratitude and reverence towards the Lord in the aftermath of the Global Pentecostal Summit 2023.

Beyond being a convergence of brilliant minds steeped in Pentecostal scholarship, the Summit also signified a distinctive fusion of thought-provoking theology and pragmatic ministry.

Above all, we express our gratitude for the palpable, life-transforming presence of God that saturated every academic presentation, worship session, creative demonstration, altar call, and moments of precious fellowship.

City Harvest Church feels privileged to have hosted GPS23, and we sincerely hope that you, too, have experienced blessings from this event!

Rev Kong Hee

Senior Pastor,
City Harvest Church
(Singapore)

Kong Hee is the senior pastor of City Harvest Church, which he co-founded with his wife Sun in 1989. In 2012, CHC was listed as the ninth largest church in the world.* Kong earned his BSc in computer science and information systems from the National University of Singapore. He holds an MA in Theology from Vanguard University in California and an honorary doctorate from Hansei University in South Korea. Currently, he is working on his PhD as a doctoral student of Prof Frank Macchia.

During his early days, Kong was involved in church-planting work and served at Christ for Asia in the Philippines. Kong founded the School of Theology in Singapore, which has trained more than 8,000 pastors, church workers, and missionaries. Together with Sun, he founded the “Church Without Walls” (CWW) initiatives and City Harvest Community Services Association to help underprivileged children, youth-at-risk, the elderly, the intellectually challenged, the hearing-impaired, and the terminally ill. Today, 27 years on, CWW also reaches out to cancer patients, poor migrant workers, single mothers, and other marginalised groups in Singapore.

Rev Sun Ho

Senior Pastor,
City Harvest Church
(Singapore)

Sun Ho co-founded City Harvest Church with her husband Kong. As the chief executive officer, she provides both spiritual and practical oversight of the functions, programmes, and services of the church to ensure the continued growth of its members and ministries. In 1996, Sun and Kong received the vision of a “Church Without Walls”, one that actively engages the poor and needy in the community “to find a need and meet it, to find a hurt and heal it”. In 1997, Sun co-founded City Harvest Community Services Association to bring practical aid to underprivileged children, youth-at-risk, the elderly, the intellectually challenged, the hearing-impaired, and the terminally ill.

In 2002, CHC embarked on a cultural mandate to engage culture with relevance and the love of Christ. Sun was commissioned to helm the “Crossover Project”, using pop music as a means of evangelism to the unchurched. She held concerts across the Asia Pacific region, reaching over half a million people and leading thousands to Christ through her testimony of overcoming depression. She also had the honour of performing the Olympic anthem in the Forbidden City, a lead-up to the opening of the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics. The Crossover Project opened doors for CHC to bring humanitarian aid to regions devastated by natural disasters in countries such as Indonesia, China, and Haiti. Sun was awarded The Outstanding Young Persons of the World (2003) and Ambassador of Love (2004) from the Children and Youth Foundation of China.
