I’m very grateful to God for these timely messages, especially the first session’s about God tenderly beckoning us to respond by realigning with His heart. Indeed, we are not ready for what is to come, and we have to be intentional in our preparation for what is to come. A very serious but necessary truth that needs to be heard and responded to.

- Jane Zhou, Renewal Christian Church

This is my first time attending a ‘Great Need of the Hour’ seminar, and also my first time hearing Pastor Kay-Chong share. He brings a message that the wider Body of Christ needs to hear, even if it may not be as popular – preparation for the coming of the Lord and a greater awareness to be awake for what is going on in our world. Pastor Jess Shao put many things in perspective for me as well – it is better to live in sobriety NOW than regret in the future.

- Gillian Hu, Cornerstone Community Church

The seminar showed me the importance of walking in deep reality with God everyday, and fully knowing my Abba Father and His love. With that as my core identity, it will free me from being caught up in temporal earthly fears and worries..

- Angie Ng, Hakka Methodist Church

What impacted me through this seminar is that victory is available and attainable if I prepare myself according to God’s plans. Things will not get better but as the child of God I can grow stronger, burn hotter and shine brighter than I used to for my Father in heaven..

- Fanny Kaizen, GBI Manhop Church

I had a few pressing thoughts on my heart as I went to this seminar to hear my Father’s heart afresh again: firstly, that we are living in uncertain times more than ever before has created a deep questioning and searching of what the real great need of the hour is for me as a believer. Secondly, what is God’s priority for our lives in this hour? Is it merely chasing the multiplicity and seemingly endless church programs that so easily consumes us.

Two things like twin engines struck out at my heart during the seminar – authenticity and holiness. Authenticity in our relationship with God will then lead to authenticity with men. We also need to come in deep humility understanding that our God is a uniquely holy God and our cry to Him in this hour should be to show us, fill us, possess us with uncompromising steadfastness for holiness that is without shame and condemnation.

I felt compelled once again of the great need to build history with God and build deep because this is what’s going to enable me to stand in the hour of testing to come.

- Allan Phua, Vision Church

Great Need of the Hour Final 2 (without click)


Isaiah 60:1-2 gives us a glimpse of where our generation is heading as we are racing towards the End-of-the-Age. Darkness will increase in a measure that we have never seen before, yet God promises that there will be an unprecedented increase of light and glory in the Church of Jesus Christ.

What is the great need of the hour? A people of God who are real, deep and authentic!

Join us for this special seminar to hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church.


1. Being Real, Deep and Authentic
2. Called to Holiness
3. “If My people…”
