G12 Asia Conference 2017

This year’s conference was truly one of the best. We saw a record attendance of 9,038, with 7,305 local delegates and 1,733 overseas delegates. A total of 215 churches hailing from 18 countries made their way to Singapore this August to be the light. We were also blessed with a panel of anointed speakers from all over the world to share God’s word, as well as the band from Metro Church Australia to lead us in worship.

Our theme for this year was We Are The Light, taken from Matthew 5:14-16 which says, “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

This theme was especially appropriate for such a time when we’re seeing so much darkness afflicting our world. Just as Rev Daniel Khong reminded us, “You don’t shine for the sake of shining, you shine because people need to see the light.” Through this conference, we received our destiny that we are God’s light. And as one Church, we will shine to bring illumination and transformation to our marketplaces and all other spheres of influence. 

One key focus at this year’s conference was about harnessing the influence and reach of new media to reach out and disciple the younger generation. This was further emphasised by Pastor Abraham Ku who stressed that this new media sphere must not be missed out, as it is where the community is today. He rallied the conference to be salt and light in the new media community. Through the sharings and panel sessions, the delegates left with not just inspiration this year, but also instruction and useful tips on how we can be the change in our communities and nations.

It’s been a great conference, and we hope you’ve been blessed. See you in 2018!
