WHY I LEFT CITY HARVEST CHURCH

“Give and you shall be given back ten fold, a hundred fold, a thousand fold,” he would quote from the bible.

FORMER KONG HEE SUPPORTER SPEAKS OUT

I was an Executive Member in CHC, and I did vote with my mind and heart to give the Board the mandate to invest the money into bonds for higher returns so that we can be good stewards of money, as Pastor Kong explained. So it invested in bonds of Xtron (XPL, supposedly a leading AVL company) which were supposed to earn interest at an acceptable risk… but apparently now we found out in court that it went around the world via CHCKL to pay for parts of the Crossover expenses and Xtron is technically not in profit.

CITY HARVEST TRIAL: Accused fed auditors a pack of lies: Prosecution

THE prosecution in the City Harvest Church case mounted a stinging rebuttal yesterday as it sought to prove it had presented enough evidence for the trial to continue. Tearing into arguments by the defence, Chief Prosecutor Mavis Chionh strived to show again that the six accused had varyingly cooked deals to misuse church funds, "fed a pack of lies" to auditors and "created false appearances in City Harvest's books". "There is clearly enough evidence for the defence to be called," she said, after taking the court through a summary of the prosecution's case.

CITY HARVEST CHURCH AUDITOR FOUND SOME CHURCH TRANSACTIONS UNUSUAL

The lead auditor of the City Harvest Church's accounts said he found some of the church's transactions "a bit unusual".

The City Harvest Trial – and my thoughts on it thus far

So the church is NOT worse off. But the case has undoubtedly taken a toll on the church – with a drop in attendance correspondingly leading to a decrease in income. Which translates to a belt-tightening that affects its employees, its congregation (in terms of the services that it would provide) and its beneficiaries (the thousands of non-church members, the poor, the elderly, the destitute that the church cares for and provides for).
