City Harvest Church pastor Kong Hee has been preaching at revival meetings in Southeast Asia despite being involved in a church scandal at City Harvest Church in the Philippines.
According to The Christian Post, Kong and his wife, popstar Sun Ho, who is also a pastor at City Harvest Church, have been holding revival events and reported seeing many turn to the Lord.
"From 10-11 June, 2016, CHC held its second-ever Global Chinese Leadership Seminar, and this time, over a 24-hour period. More than 1,100 pastors, church workers and leaders from China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore joined us for this very special event," Kong wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday.
Kong added that he and Sun were “deeply stirred in our spirits throughout that weekend.”
Kong also commented on the growth of Christianity in China, despite the persecution many Christians face there.
"According to some reports, China will have more Christians than the U.S.A. by 2030. Let us arise and be His laborers for the plentiful harvest.”
Although still active in ministry, Kong, along with other City Harvest Church leaders, were sentenced to serve an eight-year prison sentence for using church funds to further Sun’s singing career. Sun and the majority of City Harvest Church members have continued to support Kong and the other leaders who plan to appeal the court’s verdict.
