Posted by temasektimes on June 29, 2012
Kong Hee was charged together with four other CHC members on Wednesday for allegedly misusing S$50 million dollars of church funds to further the music career of his singer wife Ho Yeow Sun.
In a statement issued on its website yesterday, Mr Aries Zulkarnain, the executive pastor and a founding member of the church since its start 23 years ago, says that the church stands with the members involved.
“The people currently in the news are our pastors and trusted staff and leaders who have always put God and CHC first. As a church we stand with them and I believe fully in their integrity. Pastor Kong is still our Senior Pastor.”
Mr Zulkarnain added that COC has confirmed that Mr Kong Hee, the senior pastor, and Mr Tan Ye Peng, the deputy senior pastor will continue to preach at the church and reiterates that church activities are not affected by the case.
“City Harvest Church will continue to do its work. Our services and cell group meetings will carry on as usual. As a church we will continue to take care of our members and our community. We will not stop doing God’s work.”
