Reaching vulnerable children and youth in Singapore

Sep 2017    

In the recent National Children and Youth Survey, one critical ministry gap was for the Church to do more to minister to disadvantaged youth and children. The Church is indeed called to serve the “least of these,” and the church in Singapore is especially well-equipped to reach out to them and start bridging the gap.

At the upcoming ‘Rich Church in a Poor World’ session at Bible House on 7 Sep 2017, join keynote speaker Mr Joseph Chean and panellists from Home for Good SG, Tamar Village, and Faith Methodist Church, as they discuss the many avenues the Church can take to minister to vulnerable children and youths in Singapore.

The evening will begin with a keynote presentation by Joseph, who leads YWAM Singapore, a community of more than 80 missionaries from 16 nations. He joined Youth With A Mission (YWAM) in 1997, and served in various leadership roles before assuming the role of National Director of YWAM Singapore in 2012. After three years of listening, prayer, discussion and planning, the Mercy Centre — a part of the ministry of YWAM Singapore – was founded in November 2013 to reach out to the lost and marginalised in our community, based on the mandate in Isaiah 61:1-3. Joseph is married to Kim and has two lovely girls, Olivia and Ashley.

He will be joined by panellists Ms Vivienne Ng from Home for Good SG, Ms Mercy Ho and Ms Rachel Seah from Tamar Village Singapore, and Ms Pearly Sim from Faith Methodist Church. They will give short presentations or testimonies regarding their areas of work from three perspectives: home-based and/or fostering, para-church, and local church-based. There will be a discussion with all panellists, and opportunities for the audience to ask questions.

Come and gain insights on what more can be done for vulnerable children and youths in our midst!
