SERINA WEE SEEN CRYING BEFORE COURT APPEARANCE TO BEGIN JAIL TERM

5 of the City Harvest Church (CHC) leaders sentenced to jail for misappropriating church funds arrived at the State Courts today to begin serving their jail terms. CHC founding pastor Kong Hee, 52, was the first to arrive. He spoke to church members outside the courtroom, some of whom appeared tearful.

CHC TELLS MEMBERS TO CEASELESSLY PRAY FOR KONG HEE'S SAFETY & PROTECTION

City Harvest Church has released a statement telling members to ceaselessly pray for the safety and protection of their leaders. The church's executive pastors, Aries Zulkarnain and Bobby Chaw, also reminded them to continue serving God while remaining faithful in the things they are called to do.

"Today, Pastor Kong, Pastor Tan, Sharon, Serina and John will start serving their sentences (Friday, April 21, 2017).

We will not see them for a season, but we must continue to uphold them in prayer. We pray for their safety and protection, and we pray that the presence of God is with them at all times.

Let’s also pray ceaselessly for their families, that through this period, God’s peace will fill them and His protection and grace will be upon them.

Church, in this time, let’s not forget Romans 12:12, which tells us to rejoice in hope, [be] patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer.

Let us continue to love God wholeheartedly and love people fervently. Being faithful in the things we are called to do: come to service, attend cell group, serve in the House of God, reach out to the lost, pray and fellowship together.

See you in church this weekend."

ALMIGHTY PASTOR KONG HEE TO SERVE JAIL TERM FROM TODAY

City Harvest Church's pastor Kong Hee surrendered at the State Courts and will start serving his jail term today. His sentence was significantly reduced from the original 8 years to 3 and a half years.

All the other church leaders, except Chew Eng Han, will also serve their sentences today. Their jail terms (after huge discounts) range from 7 months to slightly more than 3 years. They were convicted of misappropriating $50million in church funds, the largest amount misappropriated in Singapore.

The trial is also one of the longest-running criminal cases here and they are finally going to prison. As for Chew Eng Han, he will be bringing the case to the apex court and given time to prepare his own defence.

#GodBlessKongHee Time for a new cell group in Changi?

CHC SHOULD REFUND THE MONIES IT CHEATED BACK TO DONORS

With the City Harvest Church trial over, culminating with the conviction and sentencing of the six church leaders, it seems pertinent to ask if former church members and organisations that have donated substantially to the church have any legal recourse for recovering their donations. After all, it is now clear that donations have been misused for purposes different from the donors’ intentions. In the spirit of maintaining public trust and confidence in charities, I hope the Commissioner of Charities can look into this issue and provide an avenue for the former church members and donors to claim back their monies.

FORMER CHC MEMBER: MORE CHURCH LEADERS AND WORKERS HAVE ENRICHED THEMSELVES WITH CHURCH FUNDS

Why is there a need for church leaders and church workers to keep up with the Jones? And bring this to the extreme? No individual gains? Really? You know who you are. Besides the 6 convicted, how many MORE others have conveniently been enriched along the way as CHC grew/ "prospered" through the years (thanks to the generous giving of sacrificial church members)?

How sensitive can you get when you're living it up while the majority of the ordinary church members scrimped and saved every penny to give sacrificially to the Arise and Build, building fund tirelessly year after year? Let's put the SGD 50 million aside. How much more of the building fund collected over the past decade has been carelessly and senselessly spent? I shall not name the private birthday parties, personal grooming items, clothes, shoes, properties, and assistants who share our MPs salaries, etc.

Should the CPIB also investigate into these church leaders??

12 THINGS SUN HO SAID IN HER INTERVIEW WITH CITY HARVEST CHURCH

“I think our church will never change: it’s still gonna be loving God whole-heartedly and loving people fervently. I really pray that this statement will continue to be our rudder, to guide CHC in our next 25 years. I’m believing that we will continue to be the salt and light, and that God will, after this episode, give us the privilege to bring another wave of revival to Singapore, and not just that, but to the world, and to let us continue to reach out to souls.”
